Bridging gaps in the Afghan community through Zaban (language)

About Zaban

When Afghan refugees and immigrants arrive in Canada, or other English-speaking countries, the youth become extremely engaged in focusing their efforts in learning English, and slowly forget their mother tongue, Farsi (Dari). This later creates barriers for connecting with their families, their culture and traditions, and further isolates them from their community and different Afghan groups. The generational gap and culture gap between the older generation of Afghans versus their children who are part of the Afghan diaspora becomes wider when there is a lack of communication.

Zaban’s mission is to bridge this gap between Afghan immigrant and refugee groups and the Afghan youth in diaspora through creating  a platform which provides the necessary tools and resources to learn about some of their languages, their culture, and their history.

Through Zaban, Afghan youth can take Farsi classes at various levels, and have access to a collection of resources that can help them understand and reconnect with their culture and history, relating to Afghanistan.

Zaban's Goals

Empower Youth

To empower young Afghans living abroad to learn and improve their knowledge of the Farsi language in order to reconnect with their culture and roots.

Educational Resources

To gather and share valuable resources for learning Farsi, which can be accessible to everyone.

Build A Community

To create a community for Afghans living outside of Afghanistan and build knowledge together through the power of language.

A Platform For Everyone

To create a platform that provides value and knowledge to those seeking to learn Farsi, regardless of their previous knowledge or skill of the language.

Courses

Zaban has collaborated with AYEDI and Rising Youth to offer a series of free online zoom classes in which Farsi lessons will be provided for 8 weeks. The classes will be offered for students at a beginner or intermediate level understanding of the language, and resources will be provided for those who are at a more advanced level. The classes will commence in the first week of January 2021.
