PPAF Story


Pakistan Poverty Alleviation Fund (PPAF) was born out of a realization that there existed a demonstrated need for a national level institution in the country that would serve poor, marginalized and disadvantaged households by facilitating their access to resources and opportunities. This considerable lack of opportunities necessitated creation of an intermediary apex organization equipped with resource backed capability to furnish financial and non-financial services to the impoverished and excluded, through a community-based framework.

The idea was to set up a private sector institution which would work concomitantly in support of public policy but was envisioned to be independent and autonomous in its operations and allocation of resources while bringing private sector rigor and efficiency to grassroots development.

In pursuit of this objective, such an institution would also develop and strengthen the civil society sector in Pakistan which has been primarily dependent on sporadic support from bilaterals and/or international charities.
