Hezbullah Shafaq

Hezbullah Shafaq started teaching English at a very young age to conflict affected students. He has always believed that education is the key to progress and that through education young Afghans can change their lives for the better.

Shafaq focuses on bringing people together, beyond their differences and stresses out the importance of education especially among the youth to change the future of Afghanistan and shift it towards a more peaceful path.

He started in 2016 his “A million Smiles for Peace” campaign where he aims to capture a million portraits from different ethnic groups in Afghanistan and the rest of the world to promote peace, unity and end stereotypes to bring the world together.
