Welcome to Gulzad Foundation
Gulzad Foundation, a non-profit public charity organization in Afghanistan, was formed by the Gulzad Group with the purpose of serving its community by helping the struggling and marginalized Afghan community, especially the women and children of Afghanistan, who are among the most vulnerable in the country. The Gulzad Foundation was established as the charitable arm of the Gulzad Group. With the motivation of supporting people affected by years of war and turmoil, the Foundation formed with the intention of supporting Afghanistan’s women and children in particular.
Formed by Haji Mohammad Arif Khan Gulzad in 1941, the Gulzad Group has practically mirrored the development of modern Afghanistan, standing tall as one of the country’s most dynamic business groups today. Ably guided along by the visionary leadership of Mr. Dawood Gulzad, the Group has emerged as one of the largest industrial and services conglomerate and a valuable contributor to the development of Afghanistan’s infrastructure.
