  • WERU Special: Borderfree Radio Afghanistan & Street Kids Project 3/5/15

    Producer/Host: Carolyn Coe

    Borderfree Radio in Kabul, Afghanistan
    Street Kids Project

    In Kabul, Afghanistan, a group of high school and college students have come together as the Afghan Peace Volunteers. At the Borderfree Nonviolence Community Centre and throughout their community, they work to build sustainable alternatives to the status quo.
    In January, 2015, some of the Afghan Peace Volunteers formed a radio team and launched Borderfree Radio with the aim of sharing their work with a larger community and of promoting a life of nonviolence. Their first radio program features the voices of some of Kabul’s street children.
    Why do Kabul’s street children want their own school?
    How do the Afghan Peace Volunteers see their society? their city?
    In what concrete ways does the Borderfree Nonviolence Community Centre work to promote understanding and nonviolence?
