  1. Great the Rector and his team at Awkum is truely a dynamic group.I have watched Awkum since its beginning 7years ago and am greatly impressed with its achievements. I hope you introduce a 1 year preparatory Pashto academic cource to bring those upto scratach who would love to pursue a major in Pashto language and literature for internatioanl and expatriate Pashtun .This is missing at every university in KP .Lets hope Awkum will be the first to introduce such a quailifying course,if indeed it is a leader and innovator among Kp universities.

  2. Joyous to know about your meeting. I am in search of a grand meeting space San Francisco for arranging my office outdoor event and got to know about different venues. Looking forward to book best venue and hope to have good time there.
