When America Leaves:
Prospects for Peace in Afghanistan

October 22 , 6:30 P.M.
Dixon University Center, Administration Building
2986 North 2nd Street, Harrisburg, PA 17110

Hassina Sherjan is Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Aid Afghanistan for Education (www.aidafghanistanforeducation.org), Owner and Chief Executive Officer of Boumi Company (www.boumi.com ),

an internationally recognized woman-owned home accessory business.

Sherjan is co-author of Toughing It Out in Afghanistan and has published op-eds in The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Guardian, USA Today and more.

U.S. troops are scheduled to leave Afghanistan by 2014. But what will happen to the country after the pullout? Will girls and women have access to education? Will the Taliban have an open door to recruit illiterate young men into its ranks?
Will Afghanistan descend into the chaos that has gripped Libya and Syria?
