About The Kabul Peace House:
In the quiet, suburban streets of Kabul, a multi-ethnic community of male and female Afghan students are using philosophies of nonviolence to work for peace in Afghanistan. The Kabul Peace House reveals the personal stories of the members and what led them to defy the risks and stand up to demand the seemingly impossible dream of peace. It is a story of hope.
