We have been making a meaningful impact for people from Afghanistan since 2012 – through voluntary engagement, public funds, and donations.
Our Organization
YAAR originates from Persian and carries many meanings. In various cultures and languages, from present-day Turkey to the Indian subcontinent, the term is still used today as a synonym for a special and kind-hearted person who helps, supports, and accompanies others. We are an association of YAARs dedicated to advocating for people from Afghanistan.
