BEHBUD

BEHBUD is celebrating 50 years of selfless service (1967-2017) to the underprivileged people and communities Pakistan-wide. It is a non-profit, non-political organisation run primarily with the help of dedicated volunteers. Behbud came into existence in 1967, and under the able leadership of Mrs. Akhtar Riazuddin, has made tremendous progress in the fields of health, education and women's empowerment. By focusing on community development, Behbud provides opportunities for responsible and generous persons to help the under-developed sectors in Pakistan through their dedicated programmes which help alleviate poverty, illiteracy, poor health conditions and economic deprivation. Our partner's strategy is simple: Behbud works to empower women - and the community at large, by applying a three-way approach providing health, education and vocational training for income generation. Behbud is a partner of Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung since 1996.
