Will Prevail


Every day, nearly 750 AUAF students set aside fear and uncertainty to sign into classes, joining our new global community in the pursuit of knowledge and opportunity. Learning has never represented a greater act of courage.


Get Involved


Our Mission

The Friends of the American University of Afghanistan (FAUAF) supports specific charitable, scientific and educational purposes activities conducted by academic institutions in Afghanistan, including but not limited to The American University of Afghanistan (AUAF), both by supporting the programs and facilities of such academic institutions within Afghanistan and its associated community in locations outside Afghanistan and by increasing awareness and understanding of such academic institutions in communities outside Afghanistan.

One student, one story at a time

FAUAF is proud to introduce the One Student, One Story at a Time campaign — a series of essays that considers the personal journeys of AUAF students. Through these students’ voices, we are reminded of the incredible resilience of the AUAF community and that education will prevail.


The Friends of the American University of Afghanistan (FAUAF) needs your help in supporting the AUAF community. Our individuals are high-value targets – Afghan women and men who seek high-quality liberal arts education and touch every corner of Afghan civil society.

We are working tirelessly and are in process of evacuating our students, staff, and faculty.
