According to UNESCO, the World's
average literacy rate is 86.3%.

"Pakistan has one of the lowest literacy rates in the world and according to UNESCO, it is 55 per cent and Pakistan stands at 160th in total countries of the world. This indeed is a very alarming situation and a challenge which must be met with resolve, determination, and action by all those who can help.”
- Nisar A. Memon, Chairperson of Amanat Foundation in India.

About Us

Initiated in 2002 by our then 11-year-old chairperson with her $10 savings, we have since disbursed 100% of funds collected towards scholarships, grants and loans to students in Pakistan who belong to low-income families. None of our trustees/directors take any remuneration or benefits, and other than fees of our bankers and external accountants, there are no expenses. So we are able to utilize almost all the donated amount for promotion of our objective which is described by our name: “CHiLD” is an acronym for “Cooperation & Help in Literacy Development”. All disbursements are based on need and merit. We do not discriminate on gender, religion or creed.

COME HELP US ERADICATE POVERTY, WHICH GIVES RISE TO THE EVILS OF VIOLENCE AND CHILD LABOR, BY INCREASING LITERACY IN PAKISTAN. HELP THE STUDENTS OF TODAY GET EDUCATED ENOUGH TO BE SELF SUFFICIENT AND PROVIDE FOR THEIR FAMILIES TOMORROW!

MISSION: Gather funds to provide scholarships and grants to underprivileged children in Pakistan, based on need and merit.
