Why work with us?

We are experts in development: We have excellent country knowledge and connections in South Asia. We deliver value for money and are relied on by our donors to spend money wisely on key priorities for change: livelihoods, education, anti-trafficking and mental health.

We are accountable and effective: We ensure due diligence in our partnerships and we seek to evidence the outcomes of our interventions. We test our work to find the most effective solutions and then take these to scale. We report on how your funds have been spent and the impact they are having.

We support your fundraising:
 We reach audiences in the UK and globally. We can support your fundraising with promotion, provide resources and come to talk to your audiences about our work. We can connect you with others and we will recognise your support through our social media.  

We have a shared outlook: We want to unlock the potential of disadvantaged people. We are focused on fresh thinking to achieve substantial, long-term change. We believe in tolerance, equality and inclusion. And for those whose faith supports Zakat, we are able to offer Zakat-giving in accordance with Islamic law.

Network partnerships

  • Corporate groups

    Our interest in diversity and inclusion has helped us build our relationship with Barclays' BAME and Asian professional networks, who generously held a fundraising auction and dinner to support or our work. There are also mutual benefits to be gained from event sponsorship. We were delighted, for example, that Citi Bank's Private Banking Network was able to supported a special business-focused evening, which included guest speakers and the chance to network.

  • Professional groups

    We were delighted to be supported at our 2018 Iftar event by, among others, the Association of Pakistani Physicians and Surgeons of the UK. We welcome the interest of health-sector professionals in our work, particularly in connection with our mental health programme.

  • Umbrella groups

    CUBE connects professional groups and organisations. They hosted a very successful Eid fundraising dinner for us in 2016, raising around £70,000 for our Mind, Body & Sew Ramadan campaign. This has helped secure a brighter future for some of Pakistan’s most vulnerable women.

  • Community groups

    We are very grateful for the relationships we have built with businesses, restaurants, temples, mosques and schools. This year, we were delighted to work with a school in Seven Kings to raise almost £6,000 to transform the state of mental health in Pakistan. And we were able to inform 600 students and their parents about this work, through the school's weekly newsletters.
