We are proud of Qazi Marzia Babakarkhail who won the prestigious Fusion Woman of the Year award in Oldham last month. Marzia is a former judge and women’s rights campaigner from Afghanistan who was elected to the City of Sanctuary Board of Trustees. She brings a wealth of experience, courage and commitment to the network.
The Woman of the Year award is presented to someone who has made a lasting and impressive contribution to their community or excelled in their chosen career or has battled against the odds. The judges felt Marzia’s background and story was inspiring. Please see this report in the Oldham Chronicle for more information.
