The exodus of young Afghans at its root, in Afghanistan itself. Who are these young people? Why after they are forcibly returned to Kabul, many of them launch themselves into yet another voyage of hope and death? What drives a 14-year old to leave? According to the UNHCR, a quarter of the world refugee population escapes from Afghanistan. Afghanistan is also a country of millions of internal refugees, people forced to live in others’ homes or in refugee camps. They often say me that they send their children to Europe so that at least one survives.
