In August, Selendy & Gay founding and managing partner Jennifer Selendy helped launch a project that was later named The Thirty Birds Foundation, focused on the evacuation of hundreds of at-risk girls and community members affiliated with the Marefat High School in Kabul, Afghanistan. So far, some 250 girls—all members of an ethnic minority group called Hazara—have arrived in Saskatoon, Canada, and are in the process of being resettled. Another 150 are currently awaiting evacuation from Pakistan to Ecuador.

In this interview, which has been lightly edited, Selendy discusses the evacuation effort and the hope she sees in the girls being resettled.
