Glasgow Afghan United (GAU) was founded in 2004 to promote the values of unity, equality, peace and diversity in Scotland by supporting the Afghan community and other ethnic minority groups.
We also provide education and training to refugees, asylum seekers and other Afghan and ethnic minority people about their rights and responsibilities in Scotland. We work to support the full participation of New Scots in all aspects of civil society.
We also promote awareness to the wider community about Afghan and ethnic minority culture and tradition, with a special focus on teaching these values to young ethnic minority people. GAU’s membership is made up of parents, children, teachers, pupils, footballers, dancers, cooks, poets, workers, carers and more.
