Started in 2008, Shaoor Foundation for Education and Awareness (SFEA or Shaoor Foundation) is a social/political advocacy, communication, and capacity building nongovernment,nonprofit organization and maintains an efficient network of its nongovernmental/civil society partners across Pakistan.
Shaoor Foundation focuses on five thematic areas:
- Education and Social/Civic Awareness
- Social and Political Peacebuilding and Countering Violent Extremism;
- Promotion of Democracy and Governance in Pakistan.
- Entrepreneurship and Youth Engagement
- Women Entrepreneurship (ICT4D as an essential tool)
The organization is linked at almost every Divisional Headquarter of Pakistan, including Gilgit-Baltistan, and Azad Jammu and Kashmir. In collaboration with its network of partners, SFEA is capable of directly working with the local communities and leaders. The organization could also engage the grassroots stakeholders in Pakistan’s remote, challenging and (at times) conflict prone areas such as: FATA, and Balochistan.
SFEA is registered under Voluntary Social Welfare Agencies Registration and Control Ordinance, 1961. It is governed by a Board of Governors and operates via its Executive Director. Shaoor has been actively engaged in various processes of constructive social change and has worked with various national/international development organizations.
An external auditor annually audits Shaoor Foundation’s accounts. The organization has policies in all possible realms of its operations e.g. financial, procurement, human resource, document retention etc., and these are professionally followed.
Gender, minorities, youth and media are the crosscutting themes of all our projects. We are positively prejudiced in favor of women and have an organizational policy of preferring quality female professional as our team for every project. Moreover, SFEA makes sure that all its project activities are environment friendly.
