Friends of Zainab Trust Fund

When Zainab Kaabi, a refugee from Iran, who spent two years living in Australia, had her temporary protection visa benefits cut, the school's principal, Dorothy Hoddinott, set up a trust fund to support her financially so that she was able to complete her education. She kickstarted the fund with her own personal finances and over time invited more people to contribute. In 2008, Hoddinott was made an officer of the Order of Australia in recognition of her work with the Friends of Zainab Trust fund.[2]

The trust fund now helps a considerable number of students who are refugees.[3]
