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

Aisha Alvi

Chair

I completed my PhD in gene therapy of breast cancer at the University of Liverpool in 2005 and am currently a registered clinical scientist at Hamad Medical Hospital and a mother of two Doha College students. My son graduated as a first-class honours student a few years ago. My daughter is in year 10 and is the youngest Qatari harp player. I enjoy music and all kinds of sports and I am very proud of my children’s achievements at DC.  My main goal as Vice-Chair of Friends of Doha College is to introduce the students and wider community to the natural beauty of Qatar as well as all the many riches my country has to offer including places such as Purple Island and the Mangroves; Qatar National Library and the museums as well as traditional and international places. I believe in making learning fun and interesting encouraging academic achievement and excellence. I hope together with joining FDC members we can enrich our children's learning experience, strengthen the bonds between teachers and students of different nationalities and ensure everyone has the most positive educational experience at Doha College. 

 

Dr Muna Al Tamimi

Vice-chair

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

Secretary

This is our fifth year at Doha College and we have four happy children in both Primary and Secondary. Life revolves around family and we love spending time outdoors at the weekends exploring Qatar, at least during the winter season! I am so happy to be on the FDC committee as we launch into action at the new Al Wajba campus, "post-Covid". I look forward to meeting with and involving many parents at the school to help build up a thriving community!

 

Iffat Davies

Treasurer

My name is Afreen Nagaria. I have two kids studying at Doha College one in primary and another in secondary. We started our DC journey in September 2021. This is my third year in Qatar, before that we were residing in the UK. In my free time when I am not volunteering at various events, I enjoy doing arts and crafts. Volunteering has always been close to my heart as I truly believe that it is an excellent way to give back to the community. As a new parent, I am very excited to be part of Friends of DC and  look at it as a platform that will give me an opportunity to contribute in bringing the community together in supporting the school.

 

Afreen Nagaria

Parent Volunteer Coordinator

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.
