fathers were reticent for their daughters to pursue even an elementary education. With each father who permits his daughter to com- plete hands-on midwifery training during the night shift at the hospital in Kabul, sup- port for young womens' careers gains mo- mentum. "Once the very first father allowed his daughter to stay overnight in Kabul, oth- ers are following suit. It's peer pressure at its best," explained Razia. In 2015, Patti Quigley ran the Boston Marathon to raise funds for RRH. On her training route, she discovered the ballroom dancing school, Dance Republic of Wellesley. After the marathon, Patti pursued a longtime interest and took up salsa dancing. Hence, the theme for the 2018 RRH fundraiser. Join the fun on Thursday, October 18, 2018 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Wellesley Country Club. Learn a few salsa steps. And, fill yourself with hope, food, and drinks as you hear Razia and Patti's inspirational update on 10 years of empowerment. Tickets are $100 each at www.raziasrayofhope.org.
