The evening included opening remarks by His Excellency the Ambassador of Afghanistan, a brief overview of the Foundation by Advisory Board Member Mansoor Ijaz, Fox News Foreign Affairs and Terrorism Analyst and Founder and Chairman of Crescent Investment Management LLC, and "off the record" remarks by guest speaker Ambassador Henry A.

Founded in 2003, the Rebuilding Afghanistan Foundation was established on the belief that education of Afghan children is the key to a stable and self sufficient civil society. By funding educational projects executed by carefully screened U.S.-based charities working on the ground, the Rebuilding Afghanistan Foundation makes it possible for the U.S. private sector to take a hand in the reconstruction effort.
