Latif and the Wall of Kindness

From Scattergood Friends School Committee:
Another student from Afghanistan has now found Scattergood---he is a great match for our Quaker community and is trying to find a way to be a part of the school. Latif B. lives in Kabul and is deeply interested in helping others in his country, especially those in need. Here is link to a New York Times article about how Latif with friends created the Wall of Kindness in Kabul:

Latif's family does not have money for his tuition or transportation so we are looking for sponsors so Latif can attend Scattergood. To procure a visa the U.S. Government requires he ensure there are sufficient funds for all three years of school. We already have received pledges for nearly one third of the amount needed, and are seeking other individuals and organizations to make three-year pledges so Latif can experience this Quaker educational community that would nurture his both his mind and his generous soul.

Read the attached document for more about Latif's story and how to help, and please pass this along to organizations or individuals who could help make this dream come true! Contact Thomas Weber, Head of School, to discuss sponsorships: tweber@scattergood.org or (206) 794-8595.
