Afghan Scholarship Rugs

Afghanistica: Safrang is posting on his blog again and promises to continue doing so. Today he posted about a unique scholarship program. Basically, you buy a rug from Afghanistan and the funds go into an academic scholarship fund that will enable students from Afghanistan to study at a small liberal arts college in Pennsylvania. At the other end, the funds will be helping economic development in Afghanistan.

Check out the scholarship program here and feel free to link to this scholarship fund.
