> Afghan Proverb

There are so many Afghan proverbs and it creats such a beautiful way of communicating in this culture. If I tell someone that have a nice dress they tell me my eyes are beautiful for seeing the beauty. We have been looking up different proverbs for my teaching with the self help groups as we explain principals of working together, working slowly instead of quickly etc. One of my favorite Proverbs that reminds me of my family, friends and donors in the US is "My dear friend in a distant country, Your face is fading, your name is keeping me alive" pashto proverb A beautiful way to say I miss you and am so grateful for your partnership.
