About us

United Aid for Azerbaijan was founded in 1998 with a mission to ‘aid long-term development of life in Azerbaijan, with particular focus on children, health and education’.  Though registered in the UK, UAFA operates as a local NGO, embedding best practices in child development, education and child welfare in a framework of advocacy, civil society development and  reform.

The Founder, Gwendolyn Burchell, was awarded with an MBE in 2004 by the Queen, for services to special education in Azerbaijan.  She has lived and worked in Azerbaijan since 1998.
