Establishment of Yalda Hakim's scholarship program at AUAF
We are pleased to announce the establishment of Yalda Hakim's Scholarship Program at the American University of Afghanistan for Afghan girls who have the merit but not the means to pursue their higher education. The announcement was made by Ms. Yalda Hakim who visited the American University of Afghanistan and spoke to the students, faculty and alumni of AUAF. The agreement for the establishment of the scholarship program was signed between Ms. Yalda Hakim and Ershad Ahmadi, Vice President of Development at AUAF.
Ms Hakim is a world renowned broadcast journalist, news presenter, and documentary maker currently working for the BBC. She recently joined AUAF as a member of the Board of Trustees. The American University of Afghanistan is very proud to host her on campus today. Ms Hakim will work closely with AUAF Board of Trustees and the AUAF administration to further advance the cause of education for women and to pursue the mission of educating the future leaders of Afghanistan.
