Dr Sima Samar: “Human rights have a value now in Afghanistan”

Dr Sima Samar is the current Chairperson of the Afghan Independent Human Rights Commission. A doctor by training, Samar spent a decade in exile in Pakistan.  In this interview she shares her realistic but positive vision of Afghanistan:  Human rights have a value now in Afghanistan; this, for me, one of the greatest achievements of our time.  I have no fears anymore; I know now that nothing is impossible. With enough collective effort and determination, things can be done; change can happen.  More>>>

 

Expanding Opportunities for Education in Kabul

Keeping up with student demand is difficult at Nahid Shahid School. In the sprawling suburb of Qala-i-Wazir in Afghanistan’s capital, Kabul, the school now has 6,200 students filing in and out of classes every day in a series of four shifts. First, from 6:30 am to 8:30 am, come the youngest girls for Class 1 and 2. Next, the day is broken up into two-, or three-hour blocks, and divided into classes for girls and boys, as three more shifts of students pass through the school compound. The school is a testament to the efforts made by the school’s shura (council of elders, teachers, parents, and community members). More>>>

 

University readies another Afghan training program

A US State Department team has wrapped up a site visit to Purdue University as the College of Agriculture embarks on a three-year program to help faculty at a university in Afghanistan better provide academic programs supporting their nation’s agriculture. During the partnership, several Purdue faculty will visit Herat University in western Afghanistan, and 44 Herat junior faculty members and students will undergo training at Purdue in groups during the summer and the spring and fall semesters. More>>>

  Afghanistan’s Most Precious Achievement: Free Media

By Saad Mohseni, Chairman, Moby Media Group: When my brothers and I returned to our native Afghanistan in 2002 following the fall of the Taliban, we encountered a country suffering from crushing poverty, ethnic divisions, and worst of all, a pervasive lack of access to information that had helped sustain a brutal dictatorship for years.  Within five years, we were astonished and proud to see that Afghanistan had transformed itself from one of the most repressed nations into one that boasted the freest media sector in the region. More>>>

 

Election coverage shows growth of new Afghan media

KABUL, Afghanistan — In a crowded room overlooking a gleaming television studio, Tolo TV’s election team is strategizing for Afghanistan’s presidential debate. The proliferation of Afghan media in the past 12 years is one of the most visible bright spots of the fraught project to foster a stable democracy, even as the NATO military mission in Afghanistan nears its end with the country still riven by war with Taliban insurgents and mired in corruption and poverty. More>>>

  From refugee camps to Kabul: The story of Afghan cricket

Despite neighbouring some of the titans of international cricket, Afghanistan does not have a long tradition of its own in the sport. But now cricket, long neglected and viewed as a foreign import in Afghanistan, is gaining in popularity and helping unite the country. Last October thousands of people turned out in cities across Afghanistan in jubilation to celebrate a sporting victory: It was the first time Afghanistan had ever qualified for the Cricket World Cup 2015. The answer, like much of Afghanistan’s recent history, lies in the refugee camps established in Pakistan by Afghans fleeing the war against the Soviets in the 1980s. More>>>

US Veteran Send Goats to Afghan Families

A veteran in Iowa who has served in Iraq and Afghanistan said he’s compelled to help the people he met in the Middle East even after returning to his home in Elk Horn. The project takes American money and turns it into something just as valuable for locals in an Afghan village — goats. The goats can reproduce up to twice a year so the herd can multiply while along the way providing milk, yogurt, cheese that can be made at a local processing centre. More>>>  and Want to help? You can donate HERE>>>

  Abdullah Abdullah, leading contender for President

Leading Afghan presidential candidate Abdullah Abdullah told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour on Monday that he would sign an agreement to keep international forces in Afghanistan, and aid dollars flowing, if he were elected to succeed President Hamid Karzai. Abdullah told Amanpour that Afghanistan will need the financial and military support of the international community “for years to come.”  More>>>

  An Afghan Success Story: Fewer Child Deaths

One of the most dramatic changes in Afghanistan since the fall of the Taliban is the increase in average life expectancy from 45 to 62 years. That gain is almost entirely a function of reductions in child mortality due to the spread of basic health services. Yet Afghanistan still has one of the highest child mortality rates in the world, and there could be significant backsliding as the international community reduces aid after NATO troops withdraw at the end of this year. More>>>

  Zabul highland districts have no access to health services

A number of inhabitants of Daychopan, Naubahar, Atghar districts complain about the lack of health services in this province. They added that in the health centres of this province there are no medicines. Health officials in this province confirmed these problems and said, “Due to the security problems, they cannot transfer medicines to the health centres on a timely basis.”  More>>>

Afghanistan Gets its Own Satellite

The satellite will be officially called AFGHANSAT 1. More>>>

The power is cost-efficient and is provided 24 hours a day. The PV generator of the system is supplemented with a diesel generator and batteries for periods of poor weather.  More>>>

American family grieves beloved Kabul Restaurant Owner

Boston — When a Taliban suicide bomber and two gunmen stormed a Lebanese restaurant in Kabul two weeks ago, they left 21 people dead and a wave of grief that has devastated a close-knit family in America.  The restaurant owner, 60-year-old Kamel Hamade of Beirut, died in a hail of automatic gunfire as he battled the intruders with only a handgun. Hamade had herded his staff out an exit before he died.  Now, halfway across the world in Milton, Hamade’s mother, two brothers, and other relatives are comforting themselves with memories of a self-made restaurateur who they said cared more about healing Afghanistan than making a profit from his cuisine.More>>>
