The Watan Project was created on July 2019 by our three founding members, Sulaiman, Yasamine, and Ali. We are a group of young Afghan-Americans based out of Southern California who hope to create a movement that will inspire people to create change.
We teach our youth about Afghanistan’s rich history/culture, talk about issues that plague our community, encourage activism, as well as lead by example with our humanitarian efforts in Afghanistan. Members of the Watan Project hope to inspire a movement in hopes that other young Afghans will join them in their journey to create a better Afghanistan.
Our platform will also be used to fundraise for humanitarian projects. We believe that as the next generation of Afghans it is our responsibility to help ease the pain and hardship our people face back home.
To provide humanitarian relief for poverty-stricken families in Afghanistan
To educate our audience about the rich culture and history of our homeland
To spur activism and community efforts in our diaspora, especially to our younger generations
To provide a safe platform to discuss issues that our tight-knit community faces
