About Us

National and international NGOs were rarely active in Afghanistan before 1370s, as an example we can only mention CARE, Asia foundation and International Assistance Mission. There was also no institution for NGOs activities coordination. NGOs began working in Afghanistan in coordination with the ministry of foreign affairs before 1370s. NGOs were mainly active at the refugee camps in Pakistan and Iran during 1380s.


What kind of institutions are NGOs?

Non-Government Organizations (NGOs) are voluntary in nature which operates as non-profitable, non-political institution for the social welfare and development of communities.

Difference between NGOs and profitable organizations (companies)

NGOs as non-profit organizations are established by volunteer, like-minded people who will work regardless of the material interests do social and cultural activities for public utility.

Law on Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs)

This law is enacted for the purpose of regulating the activities of domestic and foreign non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in Afghanistan.
