Chapel by the Sea, 95 Roscoe St Bondi
Mahboba Rawi has experienced the chaos conflict in Afghanistan has brought upon the country and people. She herself was forced to flee Kabul after leading a student protest.
Now living in Australia, Mahboba has spent the last 16 years working to provide a sustainable future within a secure environment for disadvantaged Afghan women and children. There is an astonishing number of widows and orphans in Afghanistan without resources or education as a result of the conflict. Mahboba's Promise, an organisation she founded, aims to educate Afghan women and children on literacy, vocational training, life skills and their rights.
This Sunday Mahboba will talk about the contribution of the Australian public has made to building orphanages, schools, health clinics and communities facilities in Afghanistan and the huge impact these have made on the community.
