Although we don’t necessarily hear about it all that often, Afghanistan sometimes has some great news. This has definitely been the case in recent times in the country’s Panjshir Province. This province is a part of Afghanistan in which those working in the Provincial Reconstruction Team are able to move around without any restrictions. So despite what might be going on in other parts of Afghanistan, Panjshir can give the whole region immense optimism. This would make someone like Hamed Wardak, an activist seeking to improve the future for the citizens of Afghanistan, very happy.
Panjshir and Hamed Wardak
Panjshir is actually the newest of Afghanistan’s 34 provinces and if this is what the future of Afghanistan looks like, then it certainly will make its populace happy. Indeed, a province like Panjshir is probably exactly what Afghan non-violence idealists dream the country will look like. Someone like Wardak who is one of the founding members of the Campaign for a US-Afghanistan partnership would welcome such a province which also boasts stable governance. This organization seeks to achieve “sustainable security and prosperity” for the country.
