Communication Intern


About Afghanistan Centre at Kabul University

ACKU was established in 1989 in Peshawar as a semi-independent part of ACBAR (Agency Coordinating Body for Afghan Relief). Envisioned by Louis Dupree as a central depository for reports and surveys generated by NGOs, bilateral humanitarian organizations and UN agencies, it was known then as ARIC (ACBAR Resource and Information Centre).
In 2005 ARIC was renamed ACKU (Afghanistan Centre at Kabul University) when it was registered with the Ministry of Economics in Kabul and transferred to the central library of Kabul University. In 2006 Kabul University allocated ACKU a plot at the center of the campus on which to build a facility funded from the Afghan government development budget.
ACKU’s motto is nation building through information sharing. The center promotes research and information sharing through the dissemination of knowledge, and enhancement of the capacity of Kabul University and other private institutions in Afghanistan. ACKU’s major focus is facilitating research using its collection of over 150,000 documents in Dari, Pashto, English and other European languages.
