Lotus Circle Honors National Geographic Work in Afghanistan
June 6, 2012
On June 7, The Asia Foundation and the Lotus Circle honored a decade-long partnership with National Geographic working to improve the lives of girls in Afghanistan through education. The partnership began in 2002 after photographer Steve McCurry rediscovered the iconic “girl with the green eyes” he had once photographed for a National Geographic cover. She then asked if the Society would provide education to girls in Afghanistan—something she had been denied. See a slideshow of National Geographic images that were on display at the Lotus Awards in New York.
