A brief video on Pax Populi Tutoring Services
Pax Populi is a network of people dedicated to advancing peace everywhere, but the focus of our work is Afghanistan. We have several programs through which we act on our mission, but since mid-2013 we have placed particular emphasis on our peace through education initiative, the Pax Populi Tutoring program. Through this, fluent English speakers from around the world provide English tutoring to students in Afghanistan via video conferencing. Through this exchange, both tutors and tutees learn much about each other’s culture, while Afghans have an opportunity to better develop a valuable skill for engaging in international cultural and economic exchanges.

Since 2013 we have also delivered two International initiatives the “Be Inspired” project which further extended our advocacy work into the promotion of Women’s Right in Afghanistan and the “Voices for Peace” project which engaged people from around the world to share their hopes and ideas for the advancement of peace in Afghanistan and internationally.
