Updates: We have a FOPUSA Board Special Election coming up for VP of Membership. We’ve just updated our website. Please take a look and give us feedback.

FOPUSA Board Special Election
We’ll be holding a Special Election in the next couple of months for VP of Membership. Patti Kratky had to resign from the FOPUSA Board for personal reasons. We’re sorry to lose her contributions on the Board but she will remain a member. If you would like to be considered as a candidate for the Board or want to recommend someone, please contact Ken Choquette our Nominating Committee Chair: firstname.lastname@example.org
Check Out New Website
We’ve updated the website for Friends of Pakistan USA. The new site is cleaner looking, easier to navigate and better for getting the word out to a larger audience. We want to use social media to reach as broad a community of enthusiastic folks committed to girls’ education in Pakistan. Click here (http://friendsofpakistanusa.org) .
Meeting With Pakistani Journalists
FOPUSA Board members will be meeting with 16 journalists from Pakistan in April. We will be in Washington, DC for two days to discuss ways to strengthen girls education in Pakistan. Ann Hartman, one of our Board members, has organized the program for the East West Center at the University of Hawaii.
Fundraising Goal Exceeded
Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!! We exceeded our fundraising goal of $10,000 for our Education Fund. Special thanks to Benny Cespedes for matching funds that pushed us to $10,400. This allows us to continue strong support for girls’ education in Pakistan.
New Global Power: Girls with Books
There are some very provocative films being published about the importance of women and their education. This is one of them. Click here (http://youtu.be/qa6BC2P2KHQ) to view this powerful film on girls’ education.
We believe that education is the best way to give Pakistani children hope and an alternative to extremism.
