Through Tuesday, April 9, 2013, the Council on Foundations Annual Conference takes place in Chicago. It features activists who help people around the world.

Among them is Dr. Sakena Yacoobi, Executive Director of the Afghan Institute for Learning. She is taking great personal risk in order to help educate girls in Afghanistan.

Dr. Yacoobi and Chicago-native Kristin Lindsey, CEO of The Global Fund for Children, came into our ABC7 studio to tell us about their efforts.
