We are known by acronym ‘Progress’,
The meaning behind each letter denotes our goal i.e.
Promotion of Global Peace, Human Rights, Environment and Social Services.
We want to see Pakistan as a safe, secure and progressive country, with choices (in education, health care and retirement) abound; where taxes are fair, and comprehensible; where everybody has the opportunity to go as far as their talents will take them; where government concentrates on its core functions recognizes its limits and shows favor to none, where law and justice dominates; where minorities, rich and the poor; weak and strong; men and women are treated equally and without any discrimination. We propose policies which assist in accomplishing these things.
The goals of the Foundation are based on the universal principles of honesty, transparency, trust, equity and justice. It strives for the making of a Pakistan that is safe, secure and a progressive country, which choices (in education, health care and retirement) abound; where taxes are fair, and comprehensible; where everybody has the opportunity to go as far as their talents take them; where government concentrates on its core functions, recognizes its limits and shows favor to none, where law and justice dominates; where minorities, rich and the poor; weak and strong; men and women are treated equally and without any discrimination. Foundation proposes policies, recommendations and implements projects, which assist in accomplishing them.
It works for advancing the common good, of creating opportunity for a better life for all, by focusing on five building blocks of: health, education, environment, human rights and peace. Advancing the common good is less about helping an individual, organization or a community at a time. It is more about changing systems to help all of us. We are all connected and interdependent. We all win when a child attends a school, when people are healthy, financially stable, feel safe and secure and live in a clean and healthy environment. Working together we can create such a society and community for a common brighter future.
The aims and objectives are directed at efforts in creating and promoting a harmonious society and a culture of global peace, to promote respect for the inherent dignity of all human beings irrespective of any discrimination, and to create a knowledgeable society knowing its rights and duties as responsible citizens, to create and evolve a sense of awareness among the people of the hazards of environmental degradation and of our moral, social and ecological duties and responsibilities to keep and make our cities, country and the world a safe and a better place, for our children and our future generations. It also strives for community development, in particular for the social upliftment of the under privileged, the marginalized and the needy communities, specially focusing on the rural masses and the urban slums.
