Gina Boden

During her years in Afghanistan, Gina Boden has helped build schools, teach teachers and improve education opportunities for Afghan girls living south of the capital of Kabul. Her emphasis is on peace through education and empowerment of women. Boden helped organize and found "Banu Silks", a cooperative of women in western Afghanistan who create beautiful silk scarves that are now marketed worldwide. Ms. Boden is currently researching a book called Leading Horses to Water: Empowerment of the Women of Afghanistan.

Banu Silks will be available for purchase the evening of the event.

This program is proudly sponsored by the Women’s Philanthropy Cabinet which represents women who make a minimum gift of $365 to the Annual Greensboro Jewish Federation Campaign.
