KARACHI - The CEO and Trustees of Pakistan’s largest private foundation, the Aman Foundation, have appointed Mrs Fayeeza Naqvi as Chairman of Aman’s Board of Trustees. It was announced by the Aman Foundation’s CEO, Malik Ahmad Jalal, at a ceremony.
Mrs Naqvi, who recently won the BNP Paribas Grand Prix award for Individual Philanthropy, thanked Aman’s stakeholders, including corporate partners, government officials and donors of Aman Foundation, for their unwavering support and reposing confidence in her.
Naqvi said: “My family’s greatest wish is to transform the lives of those who are underserved anywhere. We aim to do so by catalyzing the impact of the Aman Foundation through building alliances, and I invite you to join us on this journey. The challenges we face are enormous, but fortunately surmountable.”
Aman has achieved many significant milestones recently, including being recognized as the best institutional Emergency Medical Service in Asia by the Asian EMS Council,” she said, adding that these are strong indicators that Aman’s vision resonates internationally.
Mrs Naqvi vowed to continue to grow Aman and partner with like-minded institutions and individuals, both locally and globally, for transforming the country’s health and education landscape.
Felicitating Mrs Naqvi, Aman Foundation’s CEO Malik Ahmad Jalal stated: “Fayeeza has been a driving force behind much of what the Aman Foundation has achieved since its inception seven years ago. During this time, Aman has launched pioneering social businesses, including AmanAmbulances and AmanTech, one of Pakistan’s premier vocational training institutes.
He pointed out that the Aman’s programme called `The Sukh Initiative’, which provides critically needed maternal and child-health services for one million of the most underserved population of Karachi, is particularly of immense importance to Fayeeza.
