Farishta

Providing sustainable energy to Afghanistan is Patricia McArdle's new mission

Patricia McArdle has spent a lifetime in national service, including a career with the U.S. State Department spanning nearly three decades. She ended her career as a diplomat to war torn Northern Afghanistan working as a coordinator between the military and local communities for reconstruction. This experience has given her a passion to provide sustainable resources to the poorest regions of Afghanistan.

Patricia’s debut novel, Farishta, is a compelling story that only someone with her personal experience could write. Set in Afghanistan, the book explores love, loss, and the effects of war. It is also a call to bring inexpensive renewable resources to Afghanistan and other third world countries. Patricia contends that electric infrastructure creation and oil development projects will do little in the end to help most Afghans, who still live at a subsistence level in rural areas.
