Afghan Academy International

Promoting Peace, Education, Culture, Arts, Critical Thinking, Freedom of Speech

As an independent and charitable voluntary community organisation, Afghan Academy International is the first educational, cultural, arts and social group working in the UK since the early 1980s. By providing a unique range of projects and services, the Academy aims to support Afghans in the UK and abroad to achieve a better standard of living, health, education, cultural understanding, employment opportunity and integration. This is accomplished through advice, information and guidance, as well as providing platforms for interactions, coordination, cooperation and networking with academics, artists and professionals, as well as other organisations, agencies and local authorities. The Academy aims to preserve the Afghan historical and cultural heritage, whilst promoting peace, critical thinking, freedom of speech and expression, academic liberty, and a greater understanding and appreciation of different cultural norms. We welcome you suggestions. For any further information, media inquires and interviews please contact us.
