The year 2007 was a very significant landmark for the Behbud Association of Pakistan (BAP)which is a KAS partner now for more than 10 years. 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 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 celebrating 40 years of selfless service (1967-2007) to the underprivileged people and communities nationwide.
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.
Our Pledge, Mission & Vision
The members of Behbud and all our esteemed volunteers have not only a common Constitution, but also a common sheet anchor of human values which is our driving force and what keeps us at work. We are all striving, despite the challenges, towards the economic uplift and general welfare of our depressed and marginalized sectors of society".
