Hope for Education and Leadership In Afghanistan founder and co-founder, Rahmatullah Hamdard and Sulaiman Sulaimankhil, along with HELA member Hidayet Nooshin, paid a visit to the American School of Doha on October 18th, 2017 in conjunction with their visit to Qatar for #QLC17. The HELA reps had the opportunity to tour the campus, hold a series of meetings with school and MUN club leadership, and visit to an IB Global Politics class, to share their story and drum up support for their upcoming THIMUN Qatar delegation. ASD, as a component of their learning service program, have made a major commitment to support the HELA delegation to attend the annual TQ conference. The Parent Teacher Association, the Arab Mothers Association, and a private donation from Illham Afiouni and her business, My Gym, have largely underwritten travel for HELA, with the TQ office and local hotels providing additional support.
On the opening day of the Qatar Leadership Conference, representatives of the ASD PTA, AMA and My Gym, were recognized for support and received small tokens of appreciation from the HELA team.
The THIMUN Qatar office is grateful for the generosity of the American School of Doha, teachers- students and parents, and their willingness to support this amazing MUN program.
