Aman Foundation

The Aman Foundation is the Pakistan-based arm of Aman Trust, a social enterprise that aims to champion dignity and choice for the underserved in the Middle East, North Africa, and South Asia. One of the primary guiding principles of the trustees is that wealth needs to be distributed within (and out of) each generation and must reach the ecosystem that has benefitted them. Aman Foundation conducts its own projects in healthcare, education and skills, and nutrition, and also provides strategic grants to high-social-impact organizations that work in the Foundation’s core areas of interest.
