The Linda Norgrove Foundation
The Linda Norgrove Foundation is a grant-giving trust that funds education, health and childcare for women and children affected by the war in Afghanistan.
The Trust was set up in memory of, Scottish aid worker, Linda Norgrove who was devoted to ensuring that the people of Afghanistan would achieve prosperity and stability as their country was rebuilt. She was completely committed to her development work and she loved Afghanistan and its people. Linda was kidnapped and subsequently died during a failed rescue attempt in Afghanistan in October 2010.
From it’s inception the Foundation was supported by DAI, Linda’s employer in Afghanistan. The Foundation is now supported by Margaret Orwig, a volunteer from the United States who has considerable experience of working within Afghanistan.
If you’d like to read about Margaret's experiences in Afghanistan, you can do so on our blogs page.
