Opportunity Description

LNF Scholarship for Young Women at Gawharshad University


The Linda Norgrove Foundation (LNF) is a grant-giving trust providing education, health care, and childcare for women and children impacted by the Afghanistan war.
The Trust was founded in memory of Scottish aid worker Linda Norgrove, who was committed to ensuring that the Afghan people would attain prosperity and stability as their country was rebuilt. She was completely committed to her work on the development and she loved Afghanistan and its people. Linda was abducted and eventually died in October 2010, during a failed attempted rescue in Afghanistan. The foundation is currently run by Linda’s parents and four other trustees.
