Build a Foundation for Friendship with Afghans

The Afghan Culture Guide is designed for people like you who are welcoming Afghans and seeking to support their transition to the United States.

Americans and Afghans have many incredible similarities we can celebrate. At the same time, our unique personalities and cultural backgrounds create complex differences that can be both enriching and challenging to navigate. We created the Afghan Culture Guide as a resource to help you better understand some key elements of your Afghan friend's culture and to give you a foundation from which to build an effective and mutually enriching relationship.
