The Kabul Peace House by Mark Isaacs | Hardie Grant Publishing

The Kabul Peace House How a Group of Young Afghans are Daring to Dream in a Land of War


This is a story of hope and resilience in Afghanistan, a country constantly under siege from within and without. 

Refugee advocate, activist and author Mark Isaacs takes us inside a remarkable and unlikely peace project established in Afghanistan's war-torn capital city. Here a group of Afghan youth, male and female, has come together to form a model community, a microcosm of how a new Afghanistan could be: a place of peaceful coexistence.

In The Kabul Peace House, Mark takes us on a journey to the streets of Kabul, where day-to-day life involves terror and extreme danger. Having lived alongside these inspirational and courageous young people in 'The Community’, Mark reveals their personal stories of trauma and loss that ultimately lead them to defy the risks and demand peace. He bears witness to their acts of non-violent protest, their steps to make life better, their setbacks and their struggles, but most of all to their bravery and hope for a future.
