BENEFITING: Central Asia Institute
This project was started due to Suzann Fay's inspiration following the reading of the New York Times bestselling book "Three Cups of Tea". Following the reading of this book we were able to see Greg in person at SUNY Oswego and realized what a wonderful impact an event like this could have on the Greater Binghamton area, especially in view of the large Muslim population in the triple cities. Included in this event would be a community "read" which focuses particularly on school aged children. This book lends itself to this endeavor well since it is published in three unique editions for various age groups. This project would have benefits locally in increased awareness of the challenges faced by impoverished children in Afghanistan and Pakistan, as well as offering practical assistance to aid these disadvantaged children in their quest of education, literacy and equality.
