Brahim El Guabli gives presentation about Ramadan to K-5 students at Friends Central School

The Middle East Center's Outreach Programs work with schools and colleges, community and religious groups, and the general public to raise awareness and understanding of issues in the Middle East and their importance to our communities. One such program is the Speakers' Bureau Program which puts advanced graduate students in contact with schools in the Greater Philadelphia Area. 

On June 6, 2017 Brahim El Guabli, a PhD-candidate in Comparative Literature at Princeton University, gave a presentation on Ramadan to teacher Anastasia Shown's class of K-5 students at Friends Central School within the context of the Middle East Center's Speakers' Bureau program. Brahim also brought a set of children's books about Ramadan which he donated to the school. The book donation project is part of the West Philly Coalition Against Islamophobia.
