Minister in Town




In our leadership seminars' graduation for official government at the Institute for Leadership Development, we had the minister of Economic handling the diploma to the graduates. The minister of the economic with his wife was invited with his delegation to the ceremony and after giving a speech, he distributed the diplomas. The minister emphasied the importants of the ILD work for the government and leaders in community from the bottom - up level, building thier capacity and empowering them through the leadership seminars can be an important element in building the future organizations of the government. He also promised to teach few classes for ILD students and also leadership seminars at ILD for the government officials. In this photo three of the ILD instructors - Mr. Petrus, Mr. Pete and Aref are with the minister and his wife at the institute for leadership development, Herat Afghanistan.

  3. Dear Leif and Dina,
    Thanks for the comments on my posting. For our country - Afghanistan, we need some one with trust, integrity and a servant leader. Then every thing will become ok. We are all dreaming a better future and believe that our dreams will come true one day. As Gandhi says," If you want to see the change, you need to be that change". We need a change for a better future and that should initiate with us and from us.

  4. This is the first time I've seen your blog and find it most interesting. It would seem the ILD is doing important work in Afghanistan, which is wonderful.

    And your photographs portray a country about which most Americans know next to nothing. Very interesting pictures, and I appreciate so much your commentary!

    Keep up the good work!

  5. Congratulations to you all on your graduation! I've had no exposure to anything Afgan except what our news outlets show. I think CNN does as well as expected and BBC does very well, but all is so very limited. I will be interested in your future posts as an eye "on the ground" as well as a citizen for change. Best of luck to you all... I bid you peace.
