Welcome to ATVI, the Afghanistan Technical Vocational Institute! We are a unique institution of learning dedicated to providing a world-class higher education that prepares students from Afghanistan and the region to be tomorrow’s leaders. At ATVI, students learn more than just the knowledge and skills necessary to be successful; they also develop and internalize the core competencies necessary to thrive in the 21st century. Inherent in their educational program, students develop the character, integrity, mutual respect, critical insight, and state of mind needed to be successful stewards of their country’s future. They graduate with the pride and recognition that comes from having successfully completed the most rigorous and fulfilling institute education available in the region. Allow me to briefly share with you my vision for this very unique institute.
