EMPOWERING WOMEN WITH £1 A MONTH
Join the Farkhunda Trust “One Pound a Month” campaign and help send a young Afghan woman to university.
It has been proven time and time again that when you educate and empower women, their countries prosper. Our ambition at the Farkhunda Trust is not only to provide young women with a college education but also to mentor and support them and to create a network of active, ambitious, and professional women in Afghanistan that engage in the social, economic, and political life of the country.
With as little as one pound per month, you can help talented but disadvantaged women in Afghanistan complete their university degrees and achieve their dreams.
The Farkhunda Trust is run by a group of committed, professional volunteers, which means that your donations will benefit Afghan women directly.
The Farkhunda Trust is unique in that we support young women to attend university in Afghanistan. This means that your pound has a wider reach.
For example, in Afghanistan:
£700 – covers the university fees of 1 student for 1 year
£200 – provides 1 student with a laptop
£100 – covers the cost of W\workshops & capacity building for 1 student for 1 year
£50 – covers the scholarship administration costs for 1 student for 1 year
£30 – provides lunch and transport for 1 student for 1 month
£10 – provides stationery and books for 1 student for 1 month
This means that in total, the cost of sending a student to their first year of university costs £1,530
