AUAF and Roshan Telecommunications Company Signs Memorandum of Understanding to Benefit Students

On November 26 , 2015, Director of Development, Ms. Soraya Ahmadyar, of the American University of Afghanistan (AUAF) and Head of Marketing Communication of Roshan Telecommunications Company, Zafar Mehmood, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to advance programs for the students of AUAF.

Roshan approached AUAF with the "Yaraan by Roshan" youth scheme program that includes multiple opportunities for the students. The agreement allows Roshan to organize student-focused programs, such as the Student-of-the-Year scholarship program, participation in an annual Education Expo, Roshan internships, student development seminars and sporting support with particular emphasis on bowling and speed badminton.

“Roshan has had a profound impact on the daily lives of Afghanistan with their telecom services," said Ms. Ahmadyar. " It only seemed appropriate to partner with them so that our students can have exposure to what true corporate social responsibility is all about.”

AUAF will support and provide guidance to Roshan in this regard for the next year and encourages other organizations to invest in the future leaders of Afghanistan.
