The Afghanistan Dental Relief Project is both a registered 501C3 charity and an Afghanistan Non-Government NGO. It was formed in 2003 when Afghanistan was abandoned in favor of invading Iraq by the US Military. The organization provides free basic dental treatment to poor Afghans and trains underprivileged Afghan youth as dental professionals. Currently ADRP is training dental assistants, dental laboratory technicians, and dental hygienists. The program is approved by the Afghanistan Ministry of Public Health. The clinic has seven treatment rooms with a staff of sixteen, including three dentists and four dental hygienists. A modern guest house serves international volunteers who come to the project to provide treatment or to teach others. 100% of all donations go directly to the project, as there are no salaried management, and volunteers pay their own expenses.
