The mission of RFA is to endeavor to promote as well as sustain core democratic values of institutions within Afghanistan through dissemination of news, ideas and information. This station has a long history that started with the launch of the radio in October 1st 1985.

The launch of the station occurred at the height of invasion of Afghanistan by the Soviet Union, which lasted between 1979 and 1989. the main objection of RFA was to bring about objectivity in the way uncensored news would reach the Afghan population as forces of resistance that were fighting to save the Afghan nation.

Initially, the station used to broadcast only twice a week. Each broadcast always lasted for 30 minutes and was aired only in Dari. Later on, broadcasts were lengthened and now lasted for a whole hour. They were broadcast five times every week, in both Pashto and Dari.
