Our backGroud Story

Founded in 2016, Afghan Rayan Educational & Development Organization (AREDO) emerged as a force for change in the wake of four decades of conflict. Our story is woven with the threads of resilience, as we navigate the complexities of poverty, women’s rights violations, educational disparities, and societal inequalities. AREDO is not just an organization; it’s a response to the collective thirst for a better change that arose amid adversities.

In the backdrop of challenges, we don’t just see problems; we see potential. The conflicts acted as a catalyst, awakening a desire for a society rooted in development and humanitarian values. AREDO, with a dream to quench this thirst, stands as a testament to the transformative power of education and positive change.

Our journey is etched in the pursuit of justice, peace, and empowerment. Each project, each endeavor, is a step toward crafting a narrative where resilience triumphs, where women are empowered, and where societal progress is not just a dream but a tangible reality. AREDO is not just an organization; it’s a story—a story of hope, of overcoming, and of building a brighter future for all.
