We are beyond honored to announce that The Reva & David Logan Foundation has awarded Saving Mes Aynak a $50,000 grant to support our outreach and impact goals. This is a game-changing development for us and the movement to #SaveMesAynak.
The three main pillars of our outreach campaign are to preserve Mes Aynak as a protected cultural heritage site; use the film to widen public perspective of Afghanistan's cultural heritage; and to strengthen the Archaeology Department at the Afghan Ministry of Culture in Kabul to protect Mes Aynak and other important historical sites in Afghanistan.
We've done much in the past year to strive towards these goals, but this grant will allow us to do more than we ever could have imagined to achieve and accomplish them. We have big plans in 2016 to raise enough awareness to save Mes Aynak from destruction, and we cannot wait to share them with you. Thank you to the Reva & David Logan Foundation for this wonderful honor, and for all that they do for the arts, culture, and history
