Please join DAI in supporting the Linda Norgrove Foundation by participating in the 2017 Linda Norgrove 5k Run/Walk. Started in 2010, the Linda Norgrove Foundation seeks to continue the work of the late Linda Norgrove, a DAI employee who devoted herself to ensuring that the people of Afghanistan can achieve prosperity and stability as their country is rebuilt. The Foundation provides grants focused primarily on Afghan women and children’s education, healthcare, and childcare.
This year, help us raise money for medical school scholarships for Afghan women. There is a significant shortage of women doctors in Afghanistan. Especially in more conservative rural areas, many men refuse to let their female relatives be treated by a male doctor. Some women fail to receive any treatment as a result and many have died. The Linda Norgrove Foundation has sponsored ten women to attend medical school, costing $1,500 a year. The foundation takes in a new contingent of girls in September.
