Foundation supports The Noor Project’s work in Pakistan

The Foundation has agreed significant grant funding for The Noor Project, a project to support communities in need in rural Pakistan.

 

 

 

The Noor Project’s mission is to equip impoverished communities with the tools to escape poverty and become self-sustainable.  The charity’s ambition ti to enable families to become self-sufficient by providing them with the right tools and guidance. empowering communities to thrive in the wake of poverty, disease and lack of education.

The Noor Project aims to raise marginalised families above the poverty line by supporting the families for the short-term and – vitally – by striving to make them self-sufficient in the long-term through its comprehensive suite of programmes.  Over a period of 3-6 months, as well as providing families’ basic needs such as food, grocery, healthcare and child education, the Project provides adult family members with the skills to find well-paying jobs in the market.

Thanks to the Foundation’s support, the Noor Project will enable:

  • up to 80 additional students to participate in the literacy prigramme
  • support 180 students in skills workshops
  • provide food for an additional 50 families
  • support 5 additional orphaned girls
  • support 10 additional elderly beneficiaries

 

The Foundation has developed an important relationship with The Noor Project over a number of years and we are delighted to extend this support.  The Noor Project is delivering incredibly important work in some of the most disadvantaged communities in Pakistan, helping local communities to become thriving self-sufficient engines for change.
