Afghan Student Association in the University of Ottawa Afghan Students at the University of Ottawa have inaugurated the Afghan Student Association (ASA) to bring together all the students dedicated to contribute their efforts in the expansion of cultural and educational awareness of Afghans among people. The aim of ASA is to collaborate with all associations and non-profit organizations that are involved in promoting humanitarian aid to Afghan children in their educational and social life. Another main goal of our association is to facilitate basic needs for vulnerable sectors in Afghanistan directly through fund raising and other charitable programs. The association welcomes both Afghans and non-Afghans who are committed to support and endorse our mission in adopting the concept of broader ASA. In addition to all the above mentioned objectives, ASA is also passionate about organizing social activities and events for all ASA members residing in Ottawa.
