Jack Howell, Trust in Education’s Solar Oven Project Director, was featured in an article in Colombia’s University’s Morningside Post. To learn more about the challenges and benefits of solar use worldwide, see the article here.
One of our TIE volunteers, Marie, has won a PTA Reflections award for the video she made for the Afghan children in our programs. In case you missed it:
Michelle Toy and Brent Cannon of NBC interview Budd about the work of Trust in Education in spring of 2008.
Though several years old, this Emmy-nominated video does a great job of showing why the work of Trust in Education is so important .
Watch NBC’s “Bay Area” tonight!
Brent Cannon has invited Budd to speak on his show tonight. NBC regularly provides reports on our progress, our successes and our setbacks. Thank you, NBC and Brent, for recognizing that reconstruction is for the long haul and we all have to be involved.

Thanks to the East Bay Monthly for featuring Budd and Trust in Education in its June edition!
Emily Wilson’s article, “From Lafayette to Afghanistan: One local man’s quest to help a war-torn country” , gives the big picture on Trust in Education.
Budd often asks groups “What are you going to do with the rest of your life?” because he has learned how rewarding it is to be a “giver.” Trust in Education is a wonderful place to be a giver, and new volunteers–inspired by the Monthly–have joined up. If you want a place to use your talents, give us a call or send us an email. The children of Afghanistan can use your help!
