Journey for Peace

In 2010, the Kuwait-America Foundation raised over $2 million to benefit the Central Asia Institute and its mission to build schools and promote girls' education in remote regions of Pakistan and Afghanistan.

At the "Journey for Peace" gala held on March 7, 2010, Greg Mortenson, 2009 Nobel Peace Prize nominee and author of "Three Cups of Tea" was the Humanitarian Award recipient; Senator John Kerry delivered Special Remarks; UN Messenger of Peace actor Michael Douglas presented the award; musical legends Ashford and Simpson performed; and CNN's Dr. Fareed Zakaria served as Master of Ceremonies.
