This is the video of their tree planting event in Kabul The day before, on the 8th of March 2013, Topikai was with 80 girls and women who gathered at the Afghan Peace Volunteers Community Home to observe International Women's Day. They spoke about their wish to meet regularly. They told one another not to be afraid. They were given blue scarves, affirming their belief that all human beings live under the same blue sky. After the meeting, Topikai said, "Afghans are uncertain of what will happen in 2013. So, we should go knock on the doors of every home in Kabul, and ask their mothers to teach their family members not to fight any longer."
