    “…The project was conducted with our full satisfaction. The communication and response to our request was excellent…QARA was realistic with the timeline and the constraints ahead of the project, [and] offered good solutions to the challenges ahead of the project. The leadership and staff members showed energy and enthusiasm for conducting the project. I believe that QARA did an outstanding job with the final product. Considering the time constraint, QARA was still able to conduct the research in the provinces and come back with the data for the research paper on time. The product was in our full satisfaction as the study group used the materials for their further discussions and reported to the President of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan.”

  • Professionalism, with regard for tradition without compromising quality or integrity.
  • Non-disclosure, sensitivity in handling client information and communications. We do not market our work—our client’s success is our marketing tool.
  • Financial Responsibility . We believe in cost-effectiveness, and have institutionalized a culture of spending resources (ours and the client’s) with care, conducting internal audits after project closure. At least twice in our market presence, we have gone to lengths returning client funds that were saved because of the cost-effectiveness of our conduct.
