Tuesday, January 31, 2006

After covering the war in Afghanistan for NPR, Sarah Chayes gave up journalism. Now she’s running a small business (Arghand) in Kandahar. She’s here today to tell us why she’s focusing her energies on a non-profit organization that makes soaps. And she'll give us her firsthand perspective on the kind of aid Afghanistan needs for a brighter future.
