COVID-19 is causing people to stay at home and save lives. There is no doubt that limiting face-to-face contact with others is the best way to reduce the spread of virus. Therefore, APT focuses on the positive dimension of this global shutdown. The colleagues in Kabul and provinces are still connected virtually. The sparkling world of technology has injected the illusion into our minds that virtual connection could easily substitute all forms of human contact. We are still connected and our colleagues are all busy taking on the planned activities, in particular providing debate and leadership training to Regional Coordinators and Debate Club Leaders. We will fight COVID-19 together.
