  • To help Afghans find inner peace, which will directly inform the emergence of outer peace throughout the country.
  • To educate the self-leading members of the community on how to effectively and sustainably facilitate inner peace in others.
  • To help Afghans attain greater health of their minds and bodies.
  • To foster reintegration of depraved and damaged individuals into the community.
