UK Friends of KK


The UK Friends of Khwendo Kor, or FROK for short, was established in September 2002 to help with Khwendo Kor's fundraising efforts.  Its establishment was the direct result of a deep friendship that developed between Elma Sinclair and Maryam Bibi during the early days in which Maryam Bibi was studying as a mature student for her Masters degree at the University of York UK. FROK’s aim is to raise unrestricted funds to send to Khwendo Kor each year to help in its quest to acquire sustainable, long-term funding. As a membership-based charity, FROK receives annual subscriptions alongside seeking opportunities to promote the work of KK.  FROK also receives donations, undertakes fundraising and liaises actively with other organizations and individuals with shared interests and values.

Through its constitution, FROK is accountable to its membership, including through its AGM and Annual Report. The day-to-day running of FROK is undertaken by its Executive Committee. FROK is registered with the Charity Commission (Registration No: 1095857) and its registered address is 1 Darbie Close, New Earswick, York YO32 4DJ.
