Much of what most people "know" about Afghanistan is an image produced by fiction writers in popular novels and the corporate media. It is hard to imagine what it is like to live through two invasions and to adapt to changing governments engaged in constant power struggles if you have not lived through it. On September 29 our guest on SFPI Radio was Dr Mohammad Kharoti, son of Afghan nomads who through amazing persistence, luck and the help of others became a surgeon and passionate advocate for education for all Afghanis. He sees this as the best hope for creating a democratic government in Afghanistan and peace in the region and in the world. Dr Khatori served as a surgeon for Mercy Corps during the Soviet invasion and has been involved at an international level with improving educational opportunities in his native country since just prior to the US invasion. With this background, he is uniquely qualified to help us understand the realities of recent Afghanistan history from a personal perspective. We will compare his experience of the realities of life in Afghanistan to the narrative popularized in the Western media with an eye toward understanding how we might best become part of a global democratic awakening that can free humanity from the scourge of war. Learn more about how you can help Green Village Schools be part of the solution to the long sufferings of the people of Afghanistan here. SFPI Radio is the international talk show designed to allow those struggling for social justice around the world to talk to each other about how we can support efforts to promote justice, democracy and peace in every nation.
