Afghanistan Relief Organization (ARO) is a non-political, non-religious, nonprofit 501(c)(3) humanitarian organization, registered in the United States and in Afghanistan (a requirement of all non governmental organizations working in Afghanistan). We bring people together in a common goal to aid our fellow man. Help Build Hope in Afghanistan!
The Afghanistan Relief Organization (ARO) has worked on relief efforts in Afghanistan since 1998. After late 2001, hundreds of non governmental organizations (NGOs) began arriving in Afghanistan to participate in reconstruction. In 2005, the new Afghan government began a careful review and re-registration process to determine which organizations were contributing programs beneficial to recovery efforts.
In early February 2006, the Afghan government renewed the operating licenses of about 160 NGOs, out of approximately 1600 NGOs that arrived in country in early 2002. By the end of 2007, registered NGOs or PVOs operating in Afghanistan are numbered at approximately 1,000, with a requirement by the government of Afghanistan for formal reporting on project work.
The Afghanistan Relief Organization was the tenth NGO re-registered and remains in good standing. The programs and relief trips by American volunteers have been reported in Orange Coast Magazine, the Orange County Register, CNN, and The LA Weekly, among other publications.
We applaud our volunteers and staff for their hard work and due diligence!
