Mina Wali visits Portugal

In May 2008, when the Shawl Pacha School was already a reality in Afghanistan, its owner, Mina Wali, paid a visit to Portugal.

Mina was warmly welcomed by AMI's staff, Hope of Mother's partner in Afghanistan

In Setúbal, Mina walked around the Sado's estuary, joined by AMI members

"At the Lisbon's Oceanarium, Mina wanted to take pictures to show the Afghan children where is Portugal, the country that, through AMI, funds their school and their education. She also wants to tell them that if they study hard and contribute to the development of their country - Afghanistan -, they may, one day, visit Portugal or even have an Oceanarium."
