Social Media Campaigns
Aaghaz-e-Dosti utilises social media as a platform to educate people about the ‘other’ side, connect people of India and Pakistan, facilitate discussions and develop understanding of the conflict and faith in peace-building and conflict resolution.
We do so by publishing positive stories, experiences and views of people across the border. Our social media pages especially our Facebook group is a platform for people to connect with people across the border, share their experiences, thoughts for peace and represent their country, culture to break stereotypes across the border.
