Charity Navigator evaluates a nonprofit organization’s financial health including measures of stability, efficiency and sustainability. We also track accountability and transparency policies to ensure the good governance and integrity of the organization.
We have not issued this nonprofit an Finance & Accountability score. This does not indicate a positive or negative assessment, only that we have not reached a conclusion for the following reason:
The lack of a rating for this reason simply means that the organization does not meet our rating criteria. It does not indicate a positive or negative assessment by Charity Navigator.
Charity Navigator assesses how well a nonprofit delivers on its mission. To issue an Impact & Results score, we estimate the actual impact a nonprofit has on the lives of those it serves, and determine whether it is making good use of donor resources to achieve that impact.
We have not issued this nonprofit an Impact & Results score. This does not indicate a positive or negative assessment, only that we have not reached a conclusion for one of the following reasons:
The nonprofit is eligible for a score, but we have not yet gotten to scoring it.
The nonprofit is eligible for a score, but we have not yet developed the specific algorithms to estimate the impact of the type of service it delivers and so cannot issue a score yet.
The nonprofit does not primarily deliver services directly to beneficiaries or it is not reasonable to expect the nonprofit to measure impact for its primary activity. The impact analysis framework that we use is not well suited to these nonprofits.
The nonprofit is not heavily reliant on individual donors because beneficiaries fund a majority of its costs or it does not receive any private charitable contributions.

Our concentration is in improving the capacity of those we serve in our education, agriculture and health programs to become self sufficient and contribute to the economy of their families and country. Once projects have proven to be sustainable, we endeavor to transfer them to Afghan control--either the Afghan government or local private organizations.
Strategy can vary considerably depending upon the intended scale and whether a project is intended to recur annually (such as school). A4T's small size and flexibility allow for this adaptation from project to project. Generally, however, our local staff identify needs and opportunities for assistance. A4T then partners with both large charitable foundations and individual donors to obtain funds. The Board supplies general guidance and liaises with major donors, while the staff in Kabul handles the day-to-day project management. Staff provides periodic reports to the Board and to donors.
A4T has long-term partnerships with several charitable organizations and individuals to provide funding for projects. A substantial network of volunteers in the U.S., which includes a number of former board members, assists with legal advice, bookkeeping, website, communications, and a variety of other projects. the board of directors includes a number of committed professionals, some with prior nonprofit board experience. Many directors and volunteers in the U.S. have ties to or have visited Afghanistan, and two board members reside in Afghanistan full time. Our staff has low turnover and substantial ties within the local community.
Our education projects can be evaluated by the number of students who are advanced to the next grade each year, those who complete their secondary education, those who pass the Konkor examination. Health and direct charity (such as provision of food for holidays) can be measured simply by number of individuals receiving service. Our organization is not large enough that a statistically significant change, such as a drop in child mortality rates, could be attributable to our work alone. We operate on the assumption that every mouth fed and every vaccine administered counts.
We have successfully transferred one school to local Afghan control. We are working on ensuring that education services continue to be provided at our other schools until arrangements are made for transfer of control to the Ministry of Education or a local private organization. We have made significant inroads in the provision of medical services, but that work is never done. And as long as poverty exists, there will always be a need to facilitate distribution of charitable donations.
