Aïna Photo Agency : Afghanistan Through Afghan Photojournalists' Eyes. "In October 2002, 25 students -- men and women ranging from age 13 to 40 -- were selected from a list of 400 candidates and began training at the Kabul-based Aïna Media and Cultural Center. The goal was to train a young generation of Afghan photojournalists, and Aïna Photo became the first photojournalism school in Afghanistan." Via Digital Journalist. Some pictures NSFW (opium production/use related.)
