Read more about the achievements, the components and the fascinating story behind a partnership that goes back to the very roots of the Institute and which spreads nowadays beyond Kabul to the Universities of Balkh (Mazar-i'-Sharif), Herat, Nangarhar (Jalalabad), Khost, Kandahar, Bamyan, Faryab, Jawzjan and Paktia.
