Afghan Sports Trust – Opportunity Through Sport

The Afghan Sports Trust is a newly-established charity which helps fund grassroots organisations in Afghanistan and provides opportunities through sport.

James Willcox, founder of Untamed Borders, along with others have come together to establish the Afghan Sports Trust after witnessing first hand how beneficial sporting activities are to the people of Afghanistan.

Afghan Sports Trust (AST) board members, James Bingham and James Willcox are both founders of the Marathon of Afghanistan and before the AST existed, they donated their time and money to organise this event. Now the AST is a key supporter of the only mixed-gender sporting event in Afghanistan.

The Afghan Ski Challenge is a backcountry ski event that’s taken place every spring since 2010. The event is organized by the Bamyan Ski Club and open to all. Untamed Borders assist with the travel and logistics of this event.
