At a time of widespread uncertainty and potential backsliding due to ever-present Taliban violence, the stalled Bilateral Security Agreement (BSA), the fast-approaching deadline for the withdrawal of U.S. and international forces, and the inconclusive presidential election earlier in the month, the people of Afghanistan have much to gain as well as to lose in the immediate term. Fortunately, a new generation of young, educated, empowered, and responsive Afghans is taking charge, effecting change, and shaping their future.
Please join us to learn how Asia Society’s Asia 21 Young Leaders are changing Afghanistan’s narrative, how they are working together for a better tomorrow in Afghanistan and throughout the Asia Pacific region, and how you can connect and support Asia 21’s vital work.
