U.S. Embassy in Afghanistan announces Peace and Reconciliation TV – “How Far We’ve Come” Program

Deadline: 20 May 2019

The Public Affairs Section (PAS) of the U.S. Embassy in Kabul, Afghanistan has announced an open competition for eligible organizations to submit applications to carry out a program to create and broadcast via television and radio a multi-language drama series set a few years in Afghanistan’s future showing what could be possible if the nation embraced peace and reconciliation.

This cooperative agreement will support the development, production, and television and radio broadcast of a Pashto- and Dari-language television and radio drama series set in Afghanistan’s future following successful peace and reconciliation. It will show possibilities for Afghans as individuals, as communities, and as a nation under a lasting peace and reconciliation process. The drama will attempt to foreshadow the positive results of a successful peace reconciliation process: harmony between ethnicities, safe travel between provinces, job creation, economic growth, foreign investment, construction in the capital and provinces, and Afghanistan’s role as a peaceful and independent nation on the world stage. Through flashbacks, the drama will also show pivotal times in Afghanistan’s history as well as difficult and complex past decisions made by individuals, communities, and the nation that resulted in this peaceful and prosperous future. The series should acknowledge that conflict between characters and groups will remain, but demonstrate how those conflicts are managed peacefully.

Goal

The goal of this project is to spur dialogue and galvanize the Afghan population in support of peace and reconciliation.
