Why Evacuation Plans After the Collapse of the Country Failed?

In this episode, I discuss my experiences and challenges during the evacuation process after the collapse of Afghanistan. I talked about the difficulties faced due to visa issues and the need to hide any documents or certificates related to international organizations. I have also shared about involvement with the American University of Afghanistan and their initial plans to evacuate students. However, due to various reasons, including a car accident and a bomb explosion at the airport, the evacuation plan did not work out. In addition, I should also mention other evacuation options, such as a group offering visas to Afghans for evacuation to Brazil, which also fell through. I expressed my frustration and loss of hope as I recounted the failed attempts to leave the country and the lack of support from international organizations. Key Takeaways: Thousands of people attempted to evacuate Afghanistan after the collapse of the country, fearing the Taliban's rule. The American University of Afghanistan initially promised to evacuate its students, but the plan did not work out due to various obstacles. Other evacuation options, such as a group offering visas to Afghans for evacuation to Brazil, also failed to materialize. Losing hope and feeling abandoned by international organizations as joblessness and uncertainty about the future.

What Happened On The Day Afghanistan Collapsed: Part 2

#afghanboypodcast This week on the Afghan Boy podcast, the story continues with what happened to my friend and me when the Taliban invaded Afghanistan. After leaving the restaurant, I noticed that everyone was running and it was hard to move around due to the massive amount of people. My friend and I were waiting for a Pakistan visa, but the chaos of the Taliban invasion caused them to leave the restaurant without thinking about it. The Taliban were close to the gates of Kabul, and the people were running in fear of what was to come. 0:00:06 Heading: The Afghan Boy Podcast: Continuing the Story of the Collapse of Afghanistan 0:02:36 Witnessing a Car Accident in Kabul: A Personal Account 0:04:40 Heading: Experiencing a Traffic Jam in Kabul, Afghanistan 0:11:01 Heading: Reaction to the President of Afghanistan's Escape from the Country 0:14:54 Observation of a Silent City: A Window View of Unfamiliar Activity 0:17:31 "Experiencing a Military Failure: A Personal Account" Reach out to me through: [email protected] #failure #success #afghan #collapse #useless  #man #afghanistan #art #guy  #effondrement #failure #useless #selfhate #worthless #alone #conquest #story #history #pakistan #escape #fear #woman #people

The Untold Story of the Collapse of Afghanistan: Part 1

#afghanboypodcast In this episode of the Afghan Boy Podcast, I wanted to go through the events took place before and during the collapse of Afghanistan to me. As last semester university student, I was preparing to take the final tests and official graduate from university. I was dreaming of wearing the graduation cloths, inviting my parents and friends and call myself a graduate student. However, things completely changed! The war was around the corner and our country, Afghanistan was on the verge of collapse. I could see that my family, friends and neighbors were concerned about their future. Everyone was in panic and fear. The situation got worse as foreign forces came to invade our country. We witnessed horrific moments that changed people's lives forever. People started leaving their homes with whatever they had or seeking refuge in neighboring countries such as Pakistan, Iran and other countries in Central Asia.  In addition, this event was a devastating day that changed the lives of many people, leaving them in grief and sadness. The day is remembered vividly by those who were inside the country or were near to what happened. It was a day of great loss for many, and the effects of it are still felt today. The podcast aims to discuss this topic and the impact it has had on the Afghan people. It will also explore how this event has changed the lives of those who were affected by it, and how it has shaped the country today.

Afghan Boy Podcast: Success Stories Of Triumph, Failure And Beyond

I am the host of the Afghan Boy Podcast and in this episode, I discuss why I started the podcast. I first discovered podcasts when studying English and listening to business English Podcast and TEDx podcasts. I also found motivation by listening to Tony Robbins and other speakers. After the collapse of Afghanistan, many Afghans had to leave the country. Hayat wanted to continue helping people and started the podcast to do just that. I hope the podcast will help the Afghan diaspora to share their stories of failure and triumph.  I am an Afghan living in another country who has had difficulty adapting to the new environment. To help other Afghans and others understand more about the Afghan community and culture,  I want to start a podcast. The podcast will focus on the positive stories of Afghans, their culture, and their 5000 year history. It will also address topics such as sexism, triumph, and failure. I also hope that the podcast will provide a different perspective on Afghanistan, one that is not often seen in the media.  In this episode, the speaker talks about the collapse of their country and their decision to leave. I encourage my listeners to jump in and listen to the stories they have to share, in the hopes that it will help them to become a better person.
