Panah is a non-profit organization, all donations being tax exempt in Pakistan U/S 2 (36) (C) of the Income Tax Ordinance, 2001, read with rule 212 of the income tax rules, 2002.

Panah is a private, non-profit organization that receives 100% of its annual operating budget from donations and funds it receives from corporations, individuals and other NGOs. Now, six years into its inception, the Shelter relies exclusively on the kindness and generosity of donors and supporters to provide services to survivors of abuse. It could not operate without those who share their time and money so that women and young girls who have been tortured and abused can have a place of hope.

Just to give you an idea of the kind of impact your donation makes:

  • Rs. 5,000 funds safe shelter and other basic needs such as food, medical care, medicines and daily utilities for a resident for a whole month

  • Rs. 4,000 can feed 5 children and infants for a whole month

  • Rs. 6,000 each can ensure a basic academic and vocational education for all the residents for a month

To meet our residents, see the Meet Our Residents link in the drop down menu above.
