AFAIC believes that young people are empowered when they have a cultural awareness of where they came from and the culture in which they now live.
Research and practical experience has shown that students with bilingual capabilities perform better academically, as well as integrate more smoothly within society. It was from this notion that in 2012 AFAIC established a Community Language School (CLS) where students are taught the Dari Language in a multicultural context.
The participation in the CLS provides a set of learning which embraces and imparts values of respect, hospitality, community service and volunteering and ethical thinking. Students also have the opportunity to learn about Afghani and Australian cultural experiences.
