In 2005, he founded the Ariana Radio and Television Network, which quickly grew to become the largest radio and television station in the country. In addition to broadcasting programs that inform Afghans about current events and global issues, the Ariana Network devotes a significant percentage of its air time to educational programs on topics such as computer training, health tips, language training, basic business skills, and women’s issues. Under the leadership of Ehsan Bayat, the Ariana Network broadcasts in English, Dari, and Pashtu, enabling it to reach more than three million Afghans in all 34 provinces.\n\nIn addition to his work in the telecommunications sector, Ehsan Bayat oversees The Bayat Foundation, a charitable organization that supports a wide range of community service undertakings in Afghanistan. The Foundation remains dedicated to providing adequate health care, addressing basic human needs, strengthening families, empowering people, and supporting economic and social justice. In recognition of his work with this entity, Ehsan Bayat has received a number of awards and distinctions, including the 2007 Humanitarian of the Year award from Zeba Magazine and the Man of the Year award from Sitara Magazine.\n\nEhsan Bayat currently contributes to Afghanistan’s future political directions as a Senator in the Upper House of Parliament. Although he was born in Kabul and raised in Afghanistan, he was educated in the United States and earned business success in New York before returning to his native land. In 2002, Ehsan Bayat founded Afghan Wireless Communication Company, the first and largest mobile phone service provider in Afghanistan.","content_type":"","title":null,"shrink":null},{"type":"particle","particle_id":383394,"object_id":"ehsanbayat1354775609","particle_type":"image","picture":"http://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/infogram-particles-700/ehsanbayat1354775609.jpg"},{"type":"particle","particle_id":5108840,"object_id":"ehsanbayat_1401252075","particle_type":"maintitle","picture":null,"text":"Tech Training a Key Part of Development in Afghanistan","content_type":"","title":"","shrink":null},{"type":"particle","particle_id":5108917,"object_id":"ehsanbayat_1401252985","particle_type":"bodytext","picture":null,"text":"The World Bank Group in Afghanistan has released its April 2014 “Country Update.” Thedocument provides a look at some of the challenges still facing Afghanistan, and it outlines select projects and investmentsbeing made throughout the country. These projects involve health care, education, infrastructure, and economic development.One aspect of public life impacted by several development projects istechnological growth. On the educational front, programs like the “Second Afghan Skills Development Project” aim to teach skills that elevate Afghans’ employment and earnings prospects. The project seeks to identify effective schools and strategies in vocational and technical training, and finances the continuing education of teachers. As of early 2014, this program had provided $30,000 grants to 15 different institutions.With respect to infrastructure development, the “Afghanistan Information and Communication Technologies Sector Development Project” also seeks to boost training and reliability among technical workers in the country. In addition to purely material accomplishments like laying fiber-optic cable and mainstreaming mobile apps for public services, the program has successfully trained 450 IT professionals and will graduate more than 1,000 more over the next 18 months.Programs like these highlight the immense importance that technical education has for the development of Afghanistan in the coming years. Improving the educational prospects of individual young Afghans improves the economic prospects of the entire nation.","content_type":"","title":"","shrink":null},{"type":"particle","particle_id":7945928,"object_id":"35e655ae-9bf4-46e8-833e-7f68dc7d4a94","particle_type":"maintitle","picture":null,"text":"Slowing Afghan Deforestation May Be as Easy as Selling More Snow ","content_type":"","title":null,"shrink":null},{"type":"particle","particle_id":7945930,"object_id":"aec87dc5-1f98-4cc2-b6c3-10e1a9a81842","particle_type":"bodytext","picture":null,"text":"One of the most dire problems facing the environment in Afghanistan is the systematic and often illegal process of deforestation. Afghans living in Khost province, faced with unemployment and an inability to obtain farmland, are increasingly turning to smuggling valuable hardwood over the border to Pakistan. As a result, roughly half of the trees in a once verdant forest have been cut down over the last three decades, and the rate of deforestation continues to be troubling. In order to combat this scourge, some Khost officials have begun encouraging a different profession: selling snow.Afghanistan has a long tradition of snow trade, with Afghans stockpiling snow during the winter in deep pits to sell in the summer, and while modern technology has made storing and selling ice and snow impractical in much of the world, it remains a viable business in rural Afghanistan. Khost officials estimate that an increase in the snow trade could reduce deforestation by a rate as high as 30 percent, and snow salespeople can make a fair wage. In addition to encouraging people to stop logging and start selling snow, the government hopes to prioritize other employment opportunities, including beekeeping and livestock farming, in order to help Afghans obtain legal and environmentally friendly jobs.
