Afghan youth hope for One World of Friends

Dear friends and peace-makers of the world,

I used to think that tiny actions were an unproductive waste of time.

I’ve changed.

Every tiny, ‘negligible’ action for change is beautiful and valuable.

Here’s a tiny action I’d ask you to consider taking to encourage the 99% of 30 million ordinary Afghans whose voices are not heard by anyone.

Please help Abdulhai and the Afghan Peace Volunteers find peace-loving friends from each and every one of the 195/196 countries of the world, friends who are impatient for a better world!


One world in one week

The Afghan Peace Volunteers are tired of rich and powerful politicians making unjust deals over their future, as President Karzai and President Obama did in Washington D.C.

They emulate Gandhi in his Salt March through this symbolic but person-to-person dream, hoping that when 195/196 friends have extended their hands in solidarity, they can say, “With our hands of friendship, we will shake the foundations of the world.”


“We want to break all borders!”

Abdulhai and the Afghan Peace Volunteers

Love and thanks,

Hakim and the Afghan Peace Volunteers

PS : The Afghan Peace Volunteers had initially hoped to find friends from all over the world within one week. The week went by we hadn’t found friends from every country yet. So, we step on, patiently seeking friends, patiently working towards a better world.

Abdulhai hopes to find friends from all 195 countries

Dear friends,

Each of the Afghan Peace Volunteers in these videos is dreaming of finding friends from all 195 countries of the world. 

They all want to play their tiny part in building a world without borders.

This is our resistance in the age of repression, believing that ‘every hand of friendship is an act for freedom!’

Enjoy the video messages below, and Help us find friends who will join hands for better and fairer ways of organizing our global economy and community. Join us by writing to

Love from Afghanistan,

Hakim and the Afghan Peace Volunteers
