The Foundation for Afghanistan organized a networking event on the evening of Oct. 20 in Washington, DC to bring together Afghans and non-Afghans who work or are interested in Afghanistan.
Hosted by the Foundation’s President Ambassador Jawad, the event featured attendees from a diverse array of backgrounds, including government, civil society, the private sector, students and journalists. Some of the organizations with attendees included the U.S. State Department, the Afghan Medical Professionals Association of America, the Afghan Trusted Network, the National Endowment for Democracy, the Royal Bank of Canada and others.
It was the second in a series of networking events the Foundation has organized this year to facilitate interaction and exchange among Afghans, Afghan-Americans and others with an active interest in Afghanistan.
Food from the Afghan-owned Bamiyan Restaurant kept the event attendees fueled. The Afghan-American-owned Local 16 Restaurant had graciously made its rooftop deck available for the event, making it a perfect venue for a beautiful evening.
We are grateful for the help and support of all our partners, and we thank everyone who came to the event and made it a success.
The Foundation is going to host future events like this. If you wish to stay informed about our events and activities, you can connect with us through the following:
