The KhudKaar Story

The KhudKaar Story

It started with a 20-year-old young woman from one of Pakistan’s poorest districts…

Her struggle to gain self-sufficiency led her on a journey toward KhudKaar. The goal was clear: find a sustainable way to uplift the people of South Punjab out of poverty.


In Pakistan, approximately 22% of the population is living below the poverty line (HIES). The poverty ratio in 2021 stood at 39%.

This means that a significant number of people in Pakistan living in relative poverty are unable to afford basic necessities like food, shelter and clothes.


KhudKaar is a social enterprise founded on the belief that individuals themselves are best positioned to develop solutions to their challenges. With professional support, development of skills, and access to the right opportunities, people can break out of the cycle of poverty which dampens their potential

Through the capacity-building initiatives housed under KhudKaar, we enable our trainees to seize the reins of their life
