Welcome to Raisina House!
Rejuvenate Afghanistan: Vision for a Post Conflict Afghan Society
Afghanistan, often known as the Graveyard of Civilizations remains a country that has witnessed violence more than any other other South Asian nations. Like it’s said, every cloud has a silver lining, the year 2020 turned out to be that for the conflict prone country.
2020 brought in a new ray of Hope with the Peace Agreement between the US & Taliban with both sides agreeing to negotiate along with Afghan Government in Doha. Although the word peace has found its way into the landlocked country, the international community still finds itself wondering whether the country will be able to reach a consensus after the peace talks.
One thing that is certain is that any negotiated agreement among the parties will address the power sharing and cease fire. An attempt at Sustainable Peace or what some might term it as Positive Peace has to be brought about by the People of Afghanistan, i.e. the youth and the marginalized communities (women) who’ve been most hit by the violence within the country.
It is imperative for the growth of the country that Youth realises that potential it has uses it to effectively shape the future of the country. On what can be known as their vision for the country. It must also be realised that international actors have a vital role to play in assisting, and enabling youth in materializing that vision.
Hence, furthering this mission, Raisina House introduces its Project: "Rejuvenate Afghanistan."
"Rejuvenate Afghanistan" is a Multi Tier project which will focus on an holistic Reconstruction of Afghanistan through Youth participation in Dialogues, capacity building, stakeholder engagement in developmental assistance & promoting People to People Connect between both the Countries.
Multilateral Youth Dialogues: The most important aspect of "Rejuvenate Afghanistan" is promoting a Vision of Peaceful Afghanistan among the Women & Youth of the Country. It is important that this faction of the Afghan Society has a Vision & it is the responsibility of the International Community to support in realising that Vision. This will be done through our Signature "Indo-Afghan Youth Forum" & Our latest Initiative "Capital Discourse" a Platform where Youth Voices Matter.
Capacity Building: In order to realise the Vision of a Peaceful Post-conflict Afghanistan, it is important that the Population of the Country possess the Capacity to execute the framework. We will engage with various Government, Educational & Civil Institutions to work towards building & enhancing the Capacity of the Afghan Youth.
Stakeholder Engagement: The most important factor in Rejuvenating Afghanistan is the support of like-minded Institutions, Organisations & most importantly the International Community to assist in realising the Vision of a Post-Conflict Afghanistan through Development Partnership, where every faction of the society strives towards realising the soul of the Sustainable Development Goals.
Raisina House, through this Project will engage various stakeholders in India as well as the International Community in assisting the Government & most importantly the Women & Youth of the country in meeting the standards of SDGs by the Year 2030.
