THE FARKHUNDA TRUST was founded by Afghan women’s rights activist Rahela Sidiqi who was determined to improve the situation of women in Afghanistan following the tragic death of Farkhunda Malikzada.
Rahela’s embryonic project was supported by The Afghan Women’s Support Forum whose members are proud to see it flourishing.
The Trust’s mission is to provide scholarships and mentoring to exceptional female students. Selected news and reports about its activities will also appear on this page.
