  • Mission Statement: “We support education, education supports the world”
  • Purpose: Raise money to send to the Elementary School of Mnihla in a less-privileged community of Tunisia while simultaneously educating the local community about the conditions there
  • Population: ~11,000,000
  • Official language: Arabic
  • 98% Muslim, 1% Christian, 1% Jewish
  • GDP per capita: $9,500- ranked 113 in the world
  • 1 out of 4 Tunisians can not read or write

goals and delivery
Goals and Delivery
  • Minimum fundraising goal: $500
  • Hopeful fundraising goal: $1500
  • Dr. Salah Ayari (yes, our speaker last week and my Arabic professor!) is hand delivering the money to the Elementary School of Mnihla this summer
  • He is planning to attend their June “graduation” ceremony
  • Loss of partner
  • Time management
  • Finding investors
  • Bank account

Hopefully NOT selling the shirts or receiving personal donations!

  • I will be able to continue with A.G.E. next year as my Capstone project for my Arabic Studies minor. Ideally, I will focus on a different Arab country.
  • Beyond that point though it will be dependent upon future AFIL or Arabic minor students to keep it alive… I would love to see it continue!
  • One young lady, Rebeca Clary, has recently shown a lot of interest in the project and she is applying for the AFIL class next year and is pursuing an Arabic minor
