(Last Updated On: November 17, 2015)


The former President, Hamid Karzai demanded Afghan youths to stay in Afghanistan and do not shame of working in the country.

Karzai declared that instead of abandoning the country, our youths must help the country to develop with technical and professional knowledge.

Afghanistan has one of the highest proportions of young people in the world – many of whom have known only war. The median age of the population is 15.6 years old, the median age of marriage is 18, and half of mothers surveyed during a country-wide mortality survey had their first child when they were teenagers.

“Afghanistan strengthen depends on youths education. No country reached to progress and prosperity without the arms of youths,” Former President Karzai said.

Ex-president called on youths to do not think just only about the office work but also make effort in learning to work in other professions.

“Every work has dignity, we should not shame of working in a restaurant or anywhere,” Karzai added.

This comes as Afghans make up the second-largest group of new arrivals amid Europe’s huge migrant influx, with the UN’s refugee agency estimating that more than 50,000 Afghans have made the trip since the start of this year.
