"Though there are no solid statistics, there is no doubt that the number of kids working in the streets of Kabul has grown a lot over the past decade or so. The population of the Afghan capital has quadrupled, to about six million people, since 2001, and deep poverty often forces parents to dispatch their children to work. Sometimes they'll work in the morning, go to school in the afternoon, and then return to the streets in the evening. Few kids would learn much that way. Abdul Baqi Samandar, pictured here, is an elderly social activist who has turned his family's old home into a school, workshop and gym to get kids off the street. If he can't convince parents to let the kids go, he'll compensate them for lost income. He is a rare example of successful private philanthropy in a country torn by war and propped up by foreign donor money." #Kabul, #Afghanistan Photo and text by Sune Engel Rasmussen @suneengel for @guardian. #everydayKabul, #everydayAfghanistan, #everydayAsia, #everydayeveryWhere, #Instagram, #streetchildren #childlabor #education

An elderly Afghan man takes a nap and waits for the bus alongside Mazar-Kabul highway in Samangan province before leaving for Kabul. During the long and tiresome travels in the country is much usual for passengers to stop the buses for breakfast, lunch and dinner or taking rest for few hours. #Aibak, #Samangan, #Afghanistan Photo by Farshad Usyan @farshadusyan #everydaySamangan, #everydayAfghanistan, #everydayAsia, #everydayeveryWhere, #Instagram.

In the middle of our unruly and noisy city of Kabul is this serene, amazing & beautiful park where people come for a nice peaceful break. Everyone tries to find their own sources of leisure here, like these boys playing volleyball under these classic tall pine trees. #Kabul #Afghanistan Photo and text by Bilal Nikyar @taimoorafg #everydayKabul, #everydayAfghanistan, #everydayAsia, #everydayeveryWhere, #iphonography, #Instagram.

"As we drove into the buzzing and vibrant city of Jalalabad, my cousin shook me awake to show me a few men in the back of a tuk-tuk with the most incredible eyes. We managed to convince them to pull up to the side so I could make a portrait. This man is the eldest of 3 brothers." #Jalalabad, #Nangarhar, #Afghanistan.

Little kids stealing the show by performing Qataghani dance at a wedding party. Afghanistan is a multi-traditional country, containing both music and dance as an aspect of tradition and culture all across the country. The Qataghani dance is one of the nomerous traditional dances in Afghanistan which were born and originated in the Qataghan province of Afghanistan. Qataghan was once a populated province in northern Afghanistan which became defunct in the early 60s, and divided into the current #Baghlan, #Kunduz and #Takhar provinces. Qataghani is also a fast paced and joyous or Mast kind of music and dance. #Herat, #Afghanistan.

"After the sun rose high enough that the morning atmosphere no longer coloured the light, I motored back down TV Mountain for home. On the way, I stopped at a tea house where four taxi drivers were sharing a kettle of leafy green tea on a raised platform outside. I ordered the same. The men were from the Panjshir Valley, three hours north and one of the most secure provinces in Afghanistan. Panjshiris are predominantly of Tajik descent and known to be fiercely insular. When one driver asked me which Afghans I liked the most, my deliberately diplomatic response: "all", was clearly unsatisfactory. They wanted to know which of the country's major ethnicities I though was the best. My use of the term "Afghan" seemed almost anathema to them. As much as the so-called Afghan National Unity Government and it's paymasters try to present as a nationalist front, it's impossible to deny that loyalty in Afghanistan is almost always to ethnicity before country. When I went inside the tea house to pay (before being told one of the drivers had taken care of it), sure enough, three framed prints of the most lauded of all Panjshiris, Ahmad Shah Massoud, "The Lion of Panjshir" decorated the back wall. Massoud, whose image, always calm, often tilted in thought, adorns billboards and posters throughout Kabul today, came of age as guerrilla commander during the Soviet war of the 80s, found power and notoriety in the bloody civil war of the early 90s and later led the Northern Alliance's resistance to the Taliban from The Panjshir and provinces further north. He was ultimately killed by al Qaeda assassins posing as journalists on September 9, 2001." #Kabul, #Afghanistan Photo and text by Andrew Quilty @andrewquilty for @newyorkerphoto. #everydayKabul #everydayAfghanistan #everydayAsia, #everydayeveryWhere #Massoud
