After decades of war, few Afghans remember what it is like to live in peace, and many have never known a time without war. Yet, a group of Afghan youth, male and female, have come together – led by the charismatic and idealistic Insaan – to form a model community, a microcosm of how a new Afghanistan could be: a place of peaceful coexistence, a nation without violence and war that embraces the values of peace and humanity…
The Kabul Peace House documents the story of a group of young Afghans who are daring to dream in a land of unending war.
“It is hard not to hold your breath while reading their stories for fear of what will become of their idealism and their conviction that their nation’s ‘‘inner peace’’ begins with them.” – Fiona Capp, Sydney Morning Herald
