In light of the 2020 world-wide outbreak of COVID-19, the Foundation was unable to offer its normal fellowships programme. The Board of Trustees wished to put funds to another charitable cause, and focussed on the plight of women judges forced to flee Afghanistan, after the resurgence of the Taliban. The Board agreed to grant the monies through a programme run by the Association of Women Judges in the United Kingdom. This programme benefits the women judges by offering help with bare essentials, together additional education to rebuild their lives in England. The Foundation has supported English language lessons for several candidates identified by the charity which has assisted their progress toward a brighter future. We are grateful to our trustee the Hon. Justice Maura McGowan for bringing this charity and its worthy recipients to the attention of the Board.
