About Us

 

Introduction:

Afghan Cultural House (ACH) is a non - profit cultural umbrella organization which was established in 2010 in Kabul as a dynamic cultural center offering different services. It provides unique opportunities for the Afghan people, especially for women and young generations who have been ignored or isolated from the community for many decades.

This center aims to promote positive culture among Afghans and give an opportunity to them to express themselves, demonstrate their abilities and capacities through tools and services we provide. In fact, we consider ourselves as a cultural ambassador between Afghan people and the other nations of the world to promote positive culture among Afghan people and give a positive picture of Afghanistan to the world outside.

University students, civil society association members, high school graduates and many others are interested in writing and have the capacity to run a blog ,but the culture for blogging and writing is not existed among the people. We, here at the ACH, are doing our best to promote such culture in the country to promote positive change. We see a huge potential of interest among these generations and believe we can lead this to practice and demonstrate to the world the young and emerging democracy of Afghanistan through soft power.

Afghan Cultural House is a place where you can enjoy reading books available in its library, surf the internet, get updated information and news about Afghanistan and the world via its newspaper stand located in the cafe, eat your favorite fast food in a friendly space.

ACH also organizes film events (Cinematheque), live music shows, story and poetry evenings for young writers and poets and everyone is most welcome to attend and spare a few hours for a good cause.

Among many other initiatives, this center promotes: citizen journalism and social media to enhance capacity of local artists, civil and cultural associations as well as creating an informal atmosphere for everyone particularly for intellectuals, students, researchers, artists, poets, bloggers, journalists and many others.

Afghan Cultural House is led by a board of trustees who are its founders. The board of trustees appoints Director General every year to manage the entire components and program operations.
