Commitment towards building my country and bringing peace in to it – Afghanistan Page
Overview of Voyage D'etudes
My name is Mohammad Sajid Arghandaiwal I was born in 19 August of 1993 which is the independence day of Afghanistan too. I am a documentary filmmaker, writer, social activist, photographer and one of many peacemakers in Afghanistan. Over the last few years I have been involved in different projects for the advancement of peace, community development and human rights, within my home community of Afghanistan and Internationally. I took part in peace, human rights and women’s day campaigns with the organization called Pax Populi. I worked with other non-profit organizations in different fields which elicited significant social improvements.
Afghanistan is going through a critical situation and it is our (Afghans) responsibility to build our country and to advance peace in Afghanistan. The three decades of war has completely changed Afghanistan from what it used to be. The war has caused poverty in Afghanistan that some parents have to tell their children to work instead of studying. Most of the kids who are working on the streets are orphans and most of the women begging and working on the streets are widows. Children who are working on the roads and women begging and facing many difficulties made me to start working for them and to be a social activist and a peacemaker in Afghanistan. I have never said “No” to any kind of work through which I can help people. For me one of the most powerful source of bringing a change to the societies and showing the beauty of a country along with showing the problems and difficulties of a country to the world is photography and filmmaking through which one can bring a positive change. From 2008 till present I have been working for the advancement of communities and spreading peace. As a low income person I never had much to help people but I always had the energy of working for them. Even if I were not able to feed the poor people, I would do something to bring smile on the their faces. That is why I started to be a part of many non-profit organizations so that through those organizations I became able to have impact on the societies and to help as much people as I can. And yet with the support of different organizations and with the support of my friends I have helped thousands of people and I am feeling blessed because God is answering to the prayers of some innocent poor people through me.
