Kabul—Dozens of Afghan young men and women walked through the streets of Kabus yesterday proclaiming their wish for a world without wars. Committed to principles of peace and non-violence they are members of a group they call Afghan Youth Peace Volunteers. The group has been involved in projects for about two years to bring greater understanding between those who live in war-torn countires and the rest of the world.
Their next project takes place today and tomorrow and is called Global Day of Listening. Global Day of listening is a day of live calls via Skype between these young people, youth from other war-torn nations and those from others nations not at war. To participate in these calls, go to www.globaldayoflistening.org
