However, it necessitates that the international sponsors commit adequate resources to set the nation on a better path and give Afghanis time to prepare to shoulder the burden themselves. The road ahead is long, but it is increasingly becoming clear. Bloodthirsty extremists who dragged Afghanistan to the brink of collapse no longer trouble the country. Challenges exist but it is worth mentioning that the progresses witnessed over the last two decades would have been unattainable under Taliban rule. Afghanistan is still reeling from the aftermaths of decades of wars but its population has shown exceptional resiliency. The nation still needs the protection and support of the international community to help in the preservation of hard-earned achievements and making steady progresses. Afghanistan will thrive and emerge stronger and as the rebuilding process has shown, failure is not an option for Afghanis. This vision is only attainable through heightened and unwavering commitment by the global community.

Most importantly, it requires that the interveners listen to ordinary Afghans who seek international aid so they can work towards propensity and peace.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
