Join DAI in supporting the Linda Norgrove Foundation by participating in the annual Linda Norgrove Foundation Run/Walk 5k on October 3, 2015.

Started in 2010, the Linda Norgrove Foundation seeks to continue the work of the late Linda Norgrove, a DAI employee who devoted herself to ensuring that the people of Afghanistan can achieve prosperity and stability as their country is rebuilt. The Foundation provides grants focused primarily on Afghan women and children’s education, healthcare, and childcare. Accordingly, the proceeds of this year’s 5k will support medical school scholarships for women in Afghanistan.
