Blossom Hill For the Love of a Child Luncheon

Monday, February, 13, 2023 @ 11:30 am


Blossom Hill is kicking off 2023 with our annual For the Love of a Child
Luncheon on Monday, February 13, from 11:30 am – 2:00 pm at Rosie’s, in New Canaan, CT. This year, we will be joined by two of our Fellows, Fereshteh Forough and Rahmatullah Hamraz, who implement programs for girls in Afghanistan. They will discuss the current situation there and the progress they are making in their programs against all odds.

Afghanistan is the only country in the world today to suspend girls’ and women’s access to education. They are no longer allowed to attend secondary school and higher education. This devastating decision by the Taliban threatens to wipe out huge gains made in education over the past 20 years despite major challenges. The country risks a lost generation as educated women are essential for its development. No country can advance if half of its population is not allowed to pursue an education and participate in public life.

Blossom Hill programs are giving girls hope. Forough implements a coding school for girls in Herat as a pathway toward a productive future and an alternative to early marriage. Hamraz opened a literacy and vocational tailoring center for internally displaced girls on the outskirts of Kabul so they can earn a livelihood.

To learn more, please join us for a very informative and inspiring conversation. You can purchase your tickets below. Seats are limited. To purchase your ticket, please go to: https://blossomhill-foundation.org/luncheon/
