Pajhwok Afghan News is Afghanistan’s largest independent news agency. With headquarters in Kabul, eight regional bureaus and a nationwide network of reporters and correspondents, Pajhwok delivers an average daily output of three dozen stories in Pashto, Dari and English. Pajhwok also provides photographs, video footage and audio clips to international wire agencies, television and radio stations. From its beginnings as a small project to report on the 2003 Constitutional Loya Jirga, Pajhwok has become the main provider of daily news to the country’s media and the most trusted source of news about Afghanistan from an Afghan perspective. Pajhwok is wholly owned and operated by Afghans and has no political affiliations. Pajhwok Afghan News is named in honor of Abdur Rahman Pazhwak, although the English spelling adopted in 2003 is slightly different. There is no relationship between this national news instituation and Pazhwak family, however, Pazhwak Foundation and its Director, Farhad Pazhwak, commend and note the agency's tremendous contribution to the Afghan media landscape and freedom of information. We owe a particular thanks to Pajhwok Afghan News Founder and Director, Danish Karokhel.
