A group of youths organized a TEDx talk on creative and visionary Afghan minds to show the improved face of Afghanistan to the world.
An organizer of the event said the TEDxDarulaman is aimed at providing hopeful and creative youths with a globally admired platform to help their innovations reach out to millions of audiences.
The organizers said they believe that the Afghan youths are promising enough and are worthy to be delivered on an international stage.
“I have an advice for all your audience and for women in Afghanistan and all around the world, to every time be a good decision maker, a strong decision maker. It is impossible to achieve your goals without decision,” said Nasrin Oriakhail, former minister of Labor, Social Affairs, Martyrs and Disabled. “Keep your unity with your people around you because they need your support. This is very important.”
Most of the speakers were from the young generation who talked about initiatives to create jobs for Afghanistan which is in quest of peace and a better future.
One of the speakers, Sanzar Kakar, said he focuses on a scheme to create 600,000 jobs in six months in Afghanistan.
“I think the solution for the country is to provide jobs to Afghans that’s how we can bring peace. The solution focused on three areas: first how to utilize assets that are not currently being used such as vehicles that have been used across the country, the second is how to provide shopkeepers access to markets, not just being able to wait for customers to come to their doors but to able to whatever products they want sell to sell it to any Afghan all cross the country in 34 provinces. And lastly, we are trying to focus on service providers,” Kakar explained.
“We bring the TEDx to Afghanistan because we believe that there are ideas, creativity and innovations that can introduce a new face of Afghanistan to the world,” said Attila Noyan, an organizer of the event.
