AKHP Cup Debaters Put their Skills to the Test
Over 100 debaters from Khujand, Kulyab and Khorog in Tajikistan and students from UCA’s campuses in Khorog and Naryn gathered in Dushanbe to test their debating skills on August 4-5. The annual debate tournament was organised by UCA’s Aga Khan Humanities Project (AKHP) to promote collaboration between debaters of Tajikistan, and also enhance the debate skills of the participants. This year, it was dedicated to the sixth anniversary of AKHP’s Debate Club.
Participants also became familiar with the latest activities of AKHP’s Debate Club, which is considered the first-ever English-speaking debate club in Tajikistan. The tournament was conducted in British-Parliamentary format, and was judged by representatives from debate clubs, international organisations and Huawei telecommunications company in Dushanbe as well as from Afghanistan. The event was sponsored by UCA and Huawei, who provided prizes for the winners and club volunteers.
