Students Programs

The median age in Afghanistan is 18.4 years, with 63.7 per cent of Afghans under the age of 25. As the future of Afghanistan, youth face various challenges, including insurgency, poor governance, low life expectancy, poor health, low rates of education, and unsustainable development.

INSAN's Student Programs aim to provide a platform for young Afghans to come together from universities, colleges, schools, and the workforce to share their life goals, engage with seniors and experts, and ultimately empower the culture of intellectual interaction.

INSAN will advocate for legislation and policies that create a youth-friendly environment through its various programs. The scope of work for INSAN's Student Programs includes:

  • The emergence of a shared vision shared values, and cultural engagement among teens and youth from different cultural and ethnic backgrounds;
  • Developing dynamic leadership, management, and networking skills among youth;
  • Planning, action, and vision for the future;
  • Promoting critical thinking in studies and daily life;
  • Reflecting on local and national structures of society.
INSAN Internship Program

INSAN publicly announced an internship program in six different areas for newly graduated students. We provided the opportunity in two sessions (Summer and Winter) for an average of 30 students from various disciplines. These students had the opportunity to work with our senior colleagues and start building their professional careers. After completing their internship period, 60 per cent of these interns were given full-time job contracts by the institution. This internship program bridged the gap between academia, society, and workplaces and helped to achieve larger goals by providing a deeper understanding of the connections between them.

HASK Students Community

The INSAN organisation provided intellectual and resource support to an independent university students' initiative called HASK, which means "elevated." The initiative aims to engage young minds in understanding the ideas that have shaped the world for the better and how they can be applied in society.

The HASK Students' Community is guided by important principles and values, including the preservation of and respect for national identity, human dignity, religion, human rights, culture, and the political views of others, as well as the provision of social justice, active political, economic, and social participation, and the protection of Afghanistan's cultural heritage.

The community works to acquire and disseminate technical knowledge and modern experiences. They are defenders of human rights and have the opportunity to communicate and build relationships with a large community of youth in Afghanistan and around the world. The community conducts events, reading programs, and learning tours to academic and cultural areas and libraries. INSAN encourages and provides opportunities for students to participate in personal conversations with scholars and leading personalities, engage in philosophical discussions, and practice leadership. INSAN also organises workshops on research methodology, reading history, and engagement with senior members through activities such as watching films and book club discussions.

TARZAI Resource Center for Research and Media

Where do we stand as a nation among the nation-states? And where are we heading?" These are common questions among Afghan intellectuals. The Tarzai Resource Center for Research and Media (TRCRM) provides a platform for reading, interpreting, and discussing questions like these and searching for answers. Established in 2019, the center is named after Afghan diplomat and intellectual Mahmud Tarzai, who was one of the pioneers of modernization in Afghanistan. TRCRM is one of the main units that focus on collecting, archival, and recording documents and on expanding the scope of research in areas that require further study.
