The mission of ASO is to educate and spread positive awareness about Afghanistan's history, people, and the different and diverse cultures. We strive to achieve these goals through the successful planning and implementation of various social and educational events through the guidance and funding of the SGA and the University. All of our events are open to the entire student body, faculty, and staff. We hope to bring awareness and education about Afghanistan as a country of rich culture and history and not a battlefield. Anyone is more than welcome to join this group and attend our events throughout the semester. Currently we are sponsored through the Office of Multicultural Students Affairs at VCU. If you have any questions please feel free to contact any of the officers. • President: Aneil Tawakalzada • Vice President: Nadia Abdulghafoor • Secretary: Parwana Kabiri • Treasurer: Mohammad Khan • Event Coordinator: Farah Zekria • Public Relations: Munni Khattak • Social Chair: Sahar Jawadi • Philanthropy/Historian: Noor Mufti • Executive Assistant: Zainab Hayat
