Kabul: Mr. Pasun's Garden
The population of Kabul has ballooned since 2001, with returned refugees and migrants from rural villages. This growth has put pressure on city infrastructure and amplified pollution. Reporter Shafiq Hakimi introduces us to one man trying to create a pocket of green amongst the dust and concrete of Kabul. Katib Pasun works with Afghanistan Education Projects (AEP) to edit radio dramas that try to help Afghans cope with problems like urbanization. In this story, he explains his effort to create a community garden behind his apartment building.
