Living out a culture of benevolence

Helping vulnerable women and girls
since 2019

The ZamZam Foundation was founded in Afghanistan as a charity to help vulnerable widows, youth and orphans — especially girls — regardless of their ethnicity, religion, or race. ZamZam is focussed on sponsoring and championing their education and welfare. In 2022, the charity moved its headquarters to Canberra, Australia and is now a non-profit incorporated association in the Australian Capital Territory.

The ZamZam Foundation has had a busy end to 2023. In addition to continuing to send donations to Afghanistan to support local projects, ZamZam has also established a women’s group in the ACT. ZamZam will soon start selling handiworks made by young Afghanistan women.

Zamzam refers to divine water which always quenches, always heals. It is about life flourishing.

About the founder and director

The ZamZam Foundation was founded in 2019 by former Afghanistan Member of Parliament, Dr Nilofar Ebrahimi.

Dr Ebrahimi has long been passionate about helping the needy

and orphaned, and especially about furthering the education of

young women. She currently resides in Canberra, Australia with her family and continues to work closely with ZamZam in Afghanistan to provide food, clothing and aid to the most vulnerable.
