Happy 20th birthday APC from all of us in Pakistan

1990 – 2010 the Association for Progressive Communications (APC) is 20 years old.

APC, the world’s longest-running network, celebrates their 20th anniversary in May 2010. Twenty years networking online for social justice and sustainable development.

Since so many APC women were in Islamabad for the FTX, we decided to celebrate the birthday at Saidpur Village over dinner by cutting two cakes (each depicting one decade of APC). Happy birthday to a dynamic association that has become a network that many of us have come to depend on.

Here I am presenting a Sindhi Ajrak to Jan as part of the celebrations.

A warm hug from Jenny as she receives her Ajrak.

Afia explains the history of the Ajrak as all the visitors oooh and aaah over their newly acquired pieces. 🙂
