Hope + Future International Talk

After enduring war and violence, half of displaced Syrian and Iraqi children will also be deprived of an education due to a lack of access to schools.  Hope + Future International is an organization that assists those children and provides long-term sustainable solutions to this growing crisis. 

 

Matt DePretis will be hosting a “TED-talk” style presentation at Inklings Coffee on Thursday, May 23 at 7:00pm to hear Jessica Binzoni, the Founder and Executive Director of Hope + Future International.  Jessica, who grew up in Pleasanton now lives in Iraq, just arrived in town this week.  She presented at Rotary on Thursday, and you will not be disappointed in hearing her tell us what is actually happening in Iraq!
