Pakistan Centre for Philanthropy and other bodies (AKU)
Soneri Bank supported a research study of Indigenous Individual Philanthropy in Pakistan, designed to update the findings of a research on individual philanthropy conducted by the Agha Khan Development Network. The aim was to enhance the social development objectives by promoting the creation of more social assets through enhanced charitable giving, and would supplement the government’s development efforts. In time, it would reduce the burden of poverty via introduction of more schools, clinics and training institutes.
Soneri Bank has further contributed to The Patients’ Behbud Society for AKU and encouraged Zakat donation to the institutions via its branches in terms of their campaign dissemination. In areas of mentorship, Agha Khan Youth of National Youth Camps was supported, encouraging leadership skills, entrepreneurship, career development, volunteerism, ethics and diversity.
