Noor foundation has welcomed H.E. Ms. Ebyan Ladane, Somalia ambassador to India, to the board of trustee effective from May 2012. We believe the solid academic qualifications, extensive experience in building NGOs, passion for education and International profile of H.E. Ms Ladane will take this small community based charity organization to the next level.
