Harlem rapper and activist Immortal Technique recently returned from a three week trip to Afghanistan, where he helped create the Amin Institute in Kabul, which includes an orphanage, school and medical center. He chose Afghanistan, so that it would set an example for others. “If it can be successful there despite the obvious danger,” he told The Indypendent, “then we can succeed in anything. Why not repeat this experiment here in New York, Detroit, Florida, Columbus and other countries across the globe?” He teamed up with the California-based charity Omeid International for the project, helping raise close to $50,000 through benefits and concerts.
