On March 19, 2011 the Afghan Youth Peace Volunteers, with an international team of 24 peace activists, planted 55 trees at a school in Kabul, Afghanistan. They did this to usher in the Afghan New Year, in hope for a new way of living, a non-violent way of rebuilding the country. The tree planting was part of AFPY’s 2001 project, Live without Wars.
A video of the tree planting is here:
