New partnership with the US based For the Needy and Hungry Foundation and The Fahmida Begum Foundation in Pakistan

The Foundation is delighted to announce that it has entered in to a new Strategic Partnership Agreement with the US-based For the Needy and Hungry Foundation and the Pakistani charity The Fahmida Begum Foundation. The Agreement recognises the significant benefits to be realised through collaboration between the three charities, covering the sharing of expertise, supporting each others’ strategic development and developing staff development across the parties.

The Agreement is focussed on the Fahmida Begum Foundation’s Fahmida Manzil project in Karachi and For the Needy and Hungry Foundation’s Noor Project in Lahore, both of which are financially supported by the COSARAF Foundation. The three parties believe that both projects can deliver more impact through collaborative efforts, as well as other potential projects in Pakistan.

The Fahmida Manzil project and the Noor Project are flagship projects for the COSARAF Foundation, both delivering much-needed support for some of the poorest communities in Pakistan. Through this partnership, we are convinced that we can help each other to deliver even greater impact in a way that simply wouldn’t be possible by working alone.
Haroon Sheikh
Chair, COSARAF Foundation
I am enthused by the growing number of individuals we anticipate to impact; my goal is to 'always help more' and this collaboration will do just that.
Khalid Sheikh
President of For the Needy and Hungry Foundation
The Fahmida Begum Foundation is delighted to be partnering with COSARAF Foundation and For the Needy and Hungry Foundation to banish poverty by providing education, vocation, healthcare and feeding. With the collaboration of the three organizations, we expect enhanced delivery of services through the sharing of management experience and talent to grow from strength to strength for the good of the poor and under-privileged. The union is wholeheartedly welcomed by all at the Fahmida Begum Foundation and we wish everybody Godspeed.
Dr Idrees Sheikh
President of the Fahmida Begum Foundation
