As new comers to a new country and society, Baloch students are facing tremendous academic, social and personal problems. To extend a helping hand to them in facing difficult circumstance (whether personal, educational or socio-cultural) is to fulfil a cherished Baloch social value. Keeping this mind, the establishment of Baloch Students and Youth Association is to find ways in order to help the Baloch students in the fulfilment of their personal, social and national ambitions while they are studying in the UK,” he said.
