I'm on the mailing list for the Ascend Afghanistan group. Looks like they are having a movie/fundraiser in Lewes, DE on June 4. The details are on their site:

The organizers came and spoke at an event in Raleigh last year and I've never been so inspired. They are doing incredible work. We all brought gently used climbing and camping gear to donate to the girls. Please pass along information on this cause!

In case anyone is interested in where this has gone- Hanifa Yousoufi became the first woman to summit Noshaq (Afghan HP) last month.

There is ZERO tolerance for being a jerk in the Women's Forum.
