Activist Omaid Sharifi's efforts to unite Afghan youth

Omaid Sharifi was one of seventeen Afghan civil society activists attending BAAG’s peacebuilding workshop in Ireland in late February.

They learned new skills and techniques and heard how activists pushed the peace process forward in Northern Ireland.

Omaid talks to BAAG about his "Let’s Talk!” Campaign aimed at defusing tensions between young Afghans from different ethnic groups.

And he describes how he will use the new skills he learned in Ireland.
