Dunya Foundation has a rich history of 35 years, starting in 1985 as the Islamic Commerce Educational Society (ICES). It was established to improve the access to quality education in Pakistan. As the organization expanded, it extended its efforts beyond education, working to provide free or subsidized healthcare, alleviate poverty, and foster community development.
In 1999, the organization was renamed SOLACE and later, in 2012, to Dunya Foundation to better reflect its broadened objectives. Today, we partner with various NGOs to empower underprivileged individuals and communities, make healthcare accessible and affordable, and bring about sustainable change through education, research, and development.
Dunya Foundation is dedicated to providing education, support, and opportunities for self-development to underprivileged sectors of society in Pakistan. Our mission is to restore the dignity and respect of disadvantaged individuals by offering free education, skills training, and resources for economic stability.
We believe that every child deserves the chance to pursue their dreams, and every parent deserves the opportunity to provide a better life for their family, regardless of their circumstances. Through our programs and initiatives focused on aid, education, and skill development, we aim to empower those in need, enabling them to achieve financial stability, an improved standard of living, and an increased sense of self-worth in society. Our ultimate goal is to create a more equitable and just society where all individuals have the opportunity to thrive and succeed.
