On Saturday, November 4th at 2 pm the David M. Hunt Library will host Wendy Summer to talk about an Afghan initiative she created called “The Sweater Project” (TSP). TSP purchases yarn from local merchants in Kabul, Afghanistan, pays Afghan women to knit sweaters and then distributes the sweaters to destitute children living in internally displaced persons camps. It’s a win-win for Afghan women and local yarn sellers to generate income and provide new and much needed warmth for the poorest Afghan children. Wendy Summer will talk about TSP and share photographs from her many trips to Afghanistan.
This program is free and open to the public.
