The British Council was first established in Kabul in 1964. After an absence in the 1990’s, we returned to full operations in 2002.

We are here to help the Afghan people in their will to build a strong, secure, prosperous and independent nation.

We operate from a small office in Kabul but our programme reaches out to all parts of Afghanistan.
