Speaking Engagements

Budd MacKenzie, our founder, enjoys talking to groups about the challenges encountered in bringing education, economic and reconstruction aid to Afghanistan. He’s been to Afghanistan 15 times over the past six years and plans to continue going twice a year. Budd is available to speak to organizations and schools throughout the Bay Area.

He would happily travel anywhere if expenses are covered.
