The roots of the Aainda Foundation lie in the dreams and aspirations of a determined woman who arrived in the Netherlands as an Afghan refugee in 2000. She was forced to abandon her motherland; the land where she was born and raised; the land where she had desperately hoped to watch her children grow up. Sadly, it was also the land of the Taliban, who destroyed everything she held dear, including the life of her husband.
A reliable foundation requires a reliable board. We are a group of enthusiastic and highly motivated volunteers of various ethnic backgrounds and age groups. That makes our board so special! Those who have their roots in Afghanistan form a bridge between Afghanistan and Aainda, and those rooted in The Netherlands a bridge between Aainda and Dutch society. Our board members had the privilege to enjoy higher education in various directions: disciplines ranging from industrial engineering to social sciences are represented in our board. And every one of us has his/her own work experience and skills, which make us together a miscellaneous and highly motivated team. Together we can make a difference!
