Buy a Brick - Build a University
Akhuwat’s mission is to alleviate poverty by empowering socially and economically
marginalized families through interest-free microfinance and by harnessing entrepreneurial potential, capacity building, and social guidance. Since 2001, we have disbursed PKR 43.7 billion to over 2 million families, with a recovery rate of 99.94 % through our 688 branches.
Akhuwat has done some remarkable work in the education sector and has taken over 200 schools all over Pakistan, including NJV School which is the oldest public school of Sindh. We are working towards revamping these schools in order to provide quality education to the underprivileged people of Pakistan.
Now Akhuwat has set its sight on forming Pakistan’s first Fee Free University- Akhuwat University in Kasur near Lahore. This university will provide higher education to all deserving youth. We will be offering education in the fields of medicine and engineering.
To cover the enormous cost of this project we have started a campaign called BUY A BRICK BUILD A UNIVERSITY where people can donate in the form of bricks. Bricks can be bought for Rs. 100, Rs. 300, Rs.500, Rs. 700 and Rs. 1000. Donors will have their names featured on a ‘Wall of Founders’.
TELEMART has partnered with AKHUWAT for BUY A BRICK BUILD A UNIVERSITY campaign and the money you donate to them goes directly to the construction of Akhuwat University. Each donor will receive an official confirmation from Akhuwat as a guarantee that the amount donated has reached Akhuwat.
