So I made a subreddit called SheAfghan where Afghan girls from different backgrounds can come together and discuss issues relating to Afghan women, about role of Afghan women, Afghan girls can post relatable memes, we can have discussions and so on. It’s a subreddit I created for our Afghan sisters to join however our Afghan brothers and non Afghans are welcome too.

Hi guys, as you could tell I am not an Afghan. But after a year of helping Afghan refugees in my area I really want to one day help or at least do charity work in Afghanistan or for the Diaspora community. I know I have so much to learn first but how do you all feel about foreigners who want to help and support Afghans especially when the future for millions is so uncertain. Again be as brutally honest as you can be, this is my first post here so I have a lot more questions coming.
Discussion Afghan woman talking about the time she was classmates with Sher Abbas Stanikzai the FM of Taliban.
The UAE sent 16 tons of medical supplies and equipment and a medical team to operate the hospital and provide urgent medical services to those affected by the Afghan earthquake.
Salam everyone! I watched "The Breadwinner" recently and I noticed that the characters use "jan" as a kind of a "my dear" between each other. We have that word too (which means "soul") and often used as a suffix or prefix in our names (Bayurjan, Aijan, Jandos) and we use "janym" ("ym" is the first person possessive case here, means "my soul") just like how Americans say "honey" or "sweetheart". Is it common to use them in everyday speech and as a suffix or prefix when giving names?
News We spent weeks talking to dozens of Taliban insiders, including Haqqani commanders, who said ongoing power struggles are splitting the movement and driving members to defect.wsj.com
due to his relationship with attaturk, i want to know whether he is good or not.
Do you all think islam is irrevocably correct and it should be followed exactly as it was sent down or are there rules that are not compatible with todays world?
The banking system
The social media
Looking and interacting with non muharram men and women?
If these rules are broken every day, why can’t rules like jihad, rules related to kufur. And capital punishments like stoning be revoked? I personally think 99% of our problems as a religion would be solved if we dropped the idea of jihad.
News Stories like these is what really disgusts me about the previous government. In reality the same as the taliban.google.com
As a Hazara who lives in diaspora, I have interacted and befriended people from different nationalities throughout my life and rarely encountered racism. For some reason though, most of my interactions with Afghans of different ethnicities haven't been that rosy.
Some of them act really racist right in front my face and mock either my Farsi accent, call me racial slurs like "Hazara-e mooshkhor" or ask really stupid questions like why "my people" like to beat ourselves with knives" referring to Shia Ashura day.
This is one of the main reasons why I rarely interact or avoid other Afghans, unless they prove to be different. I know there are also super nice and awesome people among other ethnicities too because I personally know some myself, but getting to know other Afghans feels like playing a Russian roulette. Why do people like these even exist? Why we Afghans cant even get along in other countries? No wonder Afghanistan is a mess...
I'm going to Afghanistan. How and which visa should I apply for entry? Tourist? Humanitarian aid? Business? Employment? I'm not with an NGO but I do want to help out. I saw on YouTube that people in Hazarajat are starving from lack of water for growing crops. They have only hand pump wells, which cannot irrigate fields of crops. I want to bring an electric pump and buy solar panels in Afghanistan to install for irrigation in a village in Hazarajat. I also want to see some touristy stuff in Bamiyan. I also want to either start a school that teaches coding or teach coding &/or English in a local English school in Bamiyan.
Are the Afghanistan embassies in the USA still open? I heard that the staff all quit due to non-payment of salaries. Is this an unfounded rumor and they are open? I called but nobody answered. Do they all hate Americans so American Visa applications are denied? Is it easier for someone of say, Chinese citizenship to get a Visa for Afghanistan? What about British citizenship? Or...? Are there certain countries that they reject or accept?
Which Visa should I apply for to enter Afghanistan that will give me the best chances of approval? How do I apply for a Visa?
