Oral Stories Project

Oral Stories Project

Since early 2013, AWWP has featured twelve Oral Stories series in which AWWP writers have collected stories from women in Afghanistan, in particular women who are illiterate and cannot write their stories themselves. The women’s stories are recorded, transcribed, and translated into English by our writers and then edited for publication.

Let You and Me

Let You and Me

We can see the moon among clouds
We can bring it out
If we stretch out the hand of peace
If we open the mouth of love
We can split the sky

Peace

Peace

If a peaceful feeling
grows in your body,
you can build your life and
a world with love.
