2016 Summer Happenings

Summer Retreat
This year, with the guidance of Dr. Rohullah Amin, Director of the American Institute of Afghan Studies, AGFAF sponsored a summer retreat in Kabul at which our students and invited guests were provided the opportunity to discuss the challenges facing Afghanistan, actionable ideas for the future and how our students can contribute. Students were connected to mentors with whom they will remain in touch throughout the year to discuss opportunities and goals.
