WHY AND HOW APT WAS ESTABLISHED

Afghans for Progressive Thinking (APT) was established in 2010 by a 21-year-old Afghan boy who had a vision of a peaceful Afghanistan and founded this non-profit organization with the belief that youth as today’s leaders of Afghanistan can change the current situation in the country and build a just and inclusive society for all. APT is the first organization that held a Skype without borders debate tournament among students from Afghanistan, Malaysia, United States, India and Kashmir. In addion, APT has also sponsored Afghan students and professors to a end the World University and Asian Debang Championships. At the same me, we have organized 18 leadership development programs and trained over 360 students on the sarvent leadership. Meanwhile, we also took 72 people on APT’s exposure trip to India. APT started with just one staff and working only in the Kabul province; however, over the past 10 years it has expanded its operations to 7 provinces of Afghanistan, and currently employs over 35 part-me and full-me staff.
