Ellie Atayee-Bennett

Ellie Atayee-Bennett is a Doctor of Sociology, having obtained her PhD at the University of Southampton, UK. She has a strong interest in culture, religion, sustainability, and ethical lifestyles. Outside of her academic work, Ellie is very happy to be involved with the Qatrah Foundation as she recognises the urgent need to support women and children in Afghanistan. Ellie considers it a duty to help others so she does what she can to alleviate the suffering of deprived and silenced individuals. Having studied the complexities between religion, culture, society, and modernity, Ellie understands that activism and charity from the ground up is often what is needed to bring about lasting change. Indeed, the future is the children, and it is through women that children are born, so we must protect and empower these individuals to ensure a future that is bright and promising for the nation as a whole.
