LONDON: Afghan Council of Great Britain (ACGB) and British Afghan Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BACCI) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Afghana Foundation to support and fund humanitarian projects in Afghanistan.
Under the terms of MoU, Afghana Foundation becomes the exclusive partner to both ACGB and BACCI in Britain when supporting or funding humanitarian projects in Afghanistan.
Although, ACGB and BACCI are both nonprofit organisations and rarely fund projects directly, it makes the two organisations committed to help promote and support Afghana Foundation’s projects.
At the MoU signing ceremony, BACCI director Hassan Khan Nasir said “We agreed to signing a partnership MoU with Afghana Foundation because we know it is 100% volunteer run and privately funded. It protects us against the fear of working with charities where the founders take all the donations as salary or pay for charity operations. We know the founders of Afghana Foundation are respectable and established entrepreneurs who are funding their projects privately. And we are more than happy to have such an organisation as our partner to help us increase our humanitarian support to the people of Afghanistan.”
Afghana Foundation is an international charitable organisation based in United States, United Kingdom and Afghanistan, which provides humanitarian and developmental relief to communities in the war ravaged and poverty stricken regions of Afghanistan.
The charity is run and funded by highly qualified, renown and respected business and community leaders from Afghanistan, United Kingdom and United States as part of their philanthropic commitment to Afghanistan.
Afghana Foundation is committed to the United Nations Millennium Development Goals, aiming to run and support projects in the following sectors:
- Humanitarian Emergency Relief
- Capacity building and community development
- Woman and child welfare
- Water and sanitation
- Advocacy and campaigning for human rights
