Fahima Gaheez Vorgetts, long-time champion for the women and children of Afghanistan, will speak at The Gables’ Visitor Center on December 2, 2014 at 7 pm. Her talk will be followed by a trunk sale of Afghan handcrafts to raise funds for her causes, which include opening new schools for girls and literacy classes for women in Afghanistan, as well as creating income-generating projects for widows to help them become self-sufficient.
In 2004, Fahima Vorgetts received the Salem Award Foundation’s Award for Human Rights and Social Justice in recognition of her activism and distinguished work in those fields. Come hear her speak and show your support for these causes by purchasing one of the dazzling handcrafted items this holiday season.
