On Friday November 24th, students from around the Globe will be gathering via Video Conference to help raise awareness and funds for the building of the Godah Primary School for Girls and Boys , in Afghanistan. (For more information about the school visit: http://www.us-arc.org/education_godah.asp.) Our goal is to bring together students from over 40 schools to listen to experts, debate issues, share personal stories, sing, dance, and celebrate the opportunity we share to have an education, free of persecution and hardship.
Starting at 8:00 AM MST and running until 8:00 PM MST that evening, there will be a large number of Video Conference sessions, including guest speakers, collaborative workshop in the areas of band, choir and dance, a story telling session and culminating with a Global Concert at the end of the day.
