Characteristics of FAROE

FAROE is a non-profit, independent social-cultural organization. FAROE is not associated with Afghan or foreign political parties. The basic principal for our evaluation and judgement is the national interests of Afghanistan and its people and the cause of democracy. FAROE works together with all Afghans without distinction of their ethnicity, language or religion. The only exception for the FAROE is persons who have been involved in the war-crimes, gross violations of Human rights and crimes against humanity.
