Safe Haven in Bishkek


Safe Haven in Bishkek

September 15, 2022

We are delighted to present the film “Safe Haven in Bishkek” which is about Evacuation of Afghan students to Bishkek.
This documentary was made possible thanks to the efforts and initiative of the AUCA Development Office AUCA Development Office (Facebook page) and the help of our alumnus Adilet Dubaev and his Mark Twain Company team.
Through joint efforts, we created a video about how our alumni and students were evacuated from Afghanistan to Bishkek in the summer of 2021. The Development Office was part of the Afghan Response team after the U.S. troops withdrawal from Afghanistan when one hundred and seventy alumni and students from the American University of Central Asia and American University of Afghanistan were evacuated to Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan. Our team was actively working both on physical evacuation, application procedures of the Afghan alumni back to the Alma mater, as well as welcoming them back to the campus. Now our Afghan alumni are settled in Bishkek and are continuing their graduate degree studies.
On August 31, exactly one year has passed since the successful evacuation of our students.
