The Open Debating Society of Afghanistan Organization (ODSAO) was established in 2012 as the first registered debate organization in Afghanistan and has debate initiatives throughout the country. The group seeks to develop a contingent of experienced debaters and provide Afghan youth with unique opportunities to build self-confidence and gain important critical thinking, research, analytical, and public speaking skills as the future leaders of Afghanistan. Through debate, ODSAO activities promote a culture of tolerance and mutual understanding through informed dialogue on social issues, policy reform, peace and stability. ODSAO’s founders are experienced debaters and have participated in international debate trainings and competitions in such countries as Malaysia and South Korea."  | Website | Facebook |
