For the last 17 years Akhuwat has been exclusively working with the marginalized community. Over the last couple of decades, it has strongly come under the observation that a noteworthy number of people are being deprived of the education since their lives are afflicted by the poverty. Gauging this need of the afflicted, Akhuwat decided to share their familial and financial burden through educating the deprived community. With a passion to alleviate poverty and becoming a ray of hope for the deprived community, Akhuwat has grown from one branch in Lahore to a wide network of 800+ branches all over Pakistan. It commenced its operations as Interest free Microfinance institution with first donation of Rs. 10,000. In 17 years it has lucratively reached a milestone of Rs. 100 billion. So far, Akhuwat has touched the lives 3 million+ families with positivity.
Akhuwat’s vision is to alleviate and eradicate poverty right from its root. This mission can only be achieved if the unprivileged community becomes educated. Education has its own undeniable significance, since at the time of need only an educated individual can create opportunities for himself. With an utmost faith in humanity, Akhuwat put its first step in providing free yet high quality education in 2015.
Akhuwat envisions a Pakistan where access to quality education is a norm and is ensured as a fundamental right for every citizen. So far, all of its educational institutions are a testament to this and substantiate its visionary statement.
