What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

As a grassroots organization with no paid staff in the U.S., ARO minimizes overhead by requiring volunteers to pay their own way on relief trips. ARO organizes airlifts or relief supply shipments via humanitarian transports, and works directly with local community leadership to facilitate the direct distribution of relief aid. In 2003, ARO established an educational center in Kabul, offering computer classes, Dari, Pashtu, English, math, science, and job skill training classes. Secondary students are assisted with university preparation classes and Test of English as a Foreign Language? (TOEFL) so they may pursue higher education. Guest teacher programs also have been offered, including a poetry discussion class on the works of 13th Century Afghan poet, Rumi. Students also participate in extra curricular sports, such as boys? soccer and girls? karate. The school has experienced rapid growth and now has over 1200 youth and adult students. Classes operate from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. to accommodate those who wish to learn.
