Syed Foundation is a project of The Syed Group of Companies.
Syed Foundation aims to uphold an integrated approach to poverty alleviation, which is aligned closely with Pakistan’s commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s). It further emphasizes on multi Sector programmes that generate broad and deep impacts at the community level. All Syed Foundation programmes are designed to be inclusive, paying special attention to the identification, mobilization and inclusion of the poor segments of society. Partner Organizations (POs) are selected through a rigorous process from among NGOs, RSPs, CBOs and the private sector and finance is provided through both grants and loans. Syed Foundation likewise supports the human and institutional development of its partners and the community institutions with which they work.
Syed Foundation has also fostered a number of partnerships with academia, corporates, and government entities that supported the work being carried out under the project. Syed Foundation developed research partnerships to strengthen the role of research and evidence-based planning/design for its components. Both the asset transfer / livelihoods component and the community social mobilization component have benefited from this research. Similarly, MoUs have been signed with a variety of corporates, international agencies, and provincial government agencies) to support benefits to the communities we work with. This has helped Syed Foundation forge commercial links between its clients, insurance companies and value chain actors in the agriculture and enterprise sectors.
