Friends of Doha College


Friends of Doha College is a parent-led volunteer initiative with the aim to build an inclusive and welcoming school community.

Through their events, FDC actively raises funds which are used to purchase additional resources and facilities enriching the educational experience and overall well-being for all students and the Doha College community. FDC also provides volunteer support at various school events throughout the year.



“You are welcome to help at as many (or as few) events as you wish, for as long as you like - no formal commitment is needed”

Aisha Alvi, Chair of FDC

Hi! I am Yamina, mother of two amazing boys and a doctor by profession. Reading, traveling and crafting are my greatest passions. I strongly believe that our children have the best school experience when there is a strong bond between the parents, staff and students. Since FDC works towards that goal, I am really excited to be a part of it and hope that we, along with our parent members and volunteers and school, can work towards the FDC goals in building a strong Doha College community!


Dr Yamina Usman


I am from Rome, where I grew up before moving to London 20 years ago to do a PhD in molecular physics. My family and I have lived in Saudi Arabia before and now in Qatar since 2019, and have enjoyed exploring these beautiful countries and learning about their culture. This is my son's third year in Doha College and my first one as a member of FDC. I am very happy to be part of this and look forward to working alongside my fellow FDC members and the school, to help build together a stronger community.
