An Iftar dinner with Libyan U.S. Government Exchanges Alumni and future YES High School Students

During Ramadan, the Deputy Chief of Mission, Candace Putnam, hosted an Iftar dinner on the occasion of the holy month of Ramadan, with Libyan alumni of exchange programs and eight new participants who will take part in the Kennedy-Lugar Youth Exchange and Study (YES) program in which they will live with American families and attend high schools in the United States. The YES students attended the Iftar wearing Libyan traditional dress and had the chance to discuss their expectations of the program, and their future plans with the Deputy Chief of Mission and other Embassy staff.
