Story & Experience

As usual, young members of the Afghan Peace Volunteers worked together in their permaculture garden in Kabul.

The mission of the Afghan Peace Volunteers is as follows:

We believe that revolution for a better world is grounded in nonviolent relationships, so we reject hatred and revenge, and we nurture equal relationships with nature & all human beings through local communities that connect with the human family worldwide, working together as a strong 99% to build a green, equal and nonviolent world without war.

1. Green : Eliminate the human causes of global warming

2. Equal : Build a nonviolent, cooperative economy where the basic needs of all are met ( especially of the most vulnerable people )

3. Nonviolent world without war: Abolish war and weapons, nurturing a non-violent, critical pedagogy.

The value we seek to practice: nonviolence ( love )

This is the first Centre in Afghanistan that is dedicated to nonviolence.

The Afghan Peace Volunteers seek to practice nonviolence in all aspects of life and community, including:

  • Non-violence towards the earth and environment : to address global warming
  • Non-violent economy: to build a sharing economy that meets the basic needs of all human beings
