East Shore Women’s Perspective Potluck Dinner Benefits Barakat
On May 19, long time supporters of Barakat in Pacific Northwest hosted a benefit potluck dinner for Barakat. Over delicious food, prayers, discussion and song, Barakat’s Executive Director Angha Childress provided an insight into the inequality girls and women face in South and Central Asia. She also provided an overview of Barakat’s schools and programs and how the agency is addressing this inequality in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
