The Afghanistan National Institute of Music is the first and only music institution in Afghanistan, following several decades of conflict. During the draconian rule of the Taliban, music was outlawed entirely, and was not allowed again until 2002. In 2010, Dr. Ahmad Sarmast founded the Afghanistan National Institute of Music, with the mission to restore the country's musical and cultural heritage, while serving society's most disadvantaged members, orphans and street kids. Today about half of the students at ANIM come from this demographic, and are experiencing dramatic life change through the power and healing of music.
