About the founder
Seema Ghani founded the charity in 1999 and supported it initially through friends and family. Since then Khorasan has received generous donations from leading organisations and individuals including Afghan Women Leaders Connect, the Kathy Evans Afghan Education Trust, Martha Lane-Fox (leading UK business woman), the Dutch Embassy and many private individuals.
We would like to thank all the many people who have helped us over the years and continue to do so. Khorasan relies on the small regular contributions as much as the large one off donations from big organisations. Seema was formerly the Director General Budget directly working for the Minister of Finance ‐ 2002-2004, and more recently she was Deputy Minister for Labour and Social Affairs, Martyred and Disabled. Currently, Seema is working on anti-corruption issues.
