مَنۡ ذَا الَّذِىۡ يُقۡرِضُ اللّٰهَ قَرۡضًا حَسَنًا فَيُضٰعِفَهٗ لَهٗۤ اَضۡعَافًا کَثِيۡرَةً، وَاللّٰهُ يَقۡبِضُ وَيَبۡصُۜط، وَاِلَيۡهِ تُرۡجَعُوۡنَ

Who will lend to Allah a good loan which Allah will multiply many times over? It is Allah ˹alone˺ who decreases and increases “wealth”. And to Him you will “all” be returned. (Surat Baqara, Verse 245)

Team Karachi Welfare Society (International) has evolved itself into a robust, dynamic and forward looking humanitarian and development organization in the course of merely 7 years. We are indebted to our well-wishers, donors and friends for your constant support and encouragement that have inspired a momentum within us to go ahead with our dreams. We envision a bright future for our great nation, Pakistan, and strive hard to achieve the same through welfare interventions and hard work in our chosen sphere. What we are at TK today is a result of thousands of hands working together to build this society that in turn serves the nation in its growth and development. We also believe that all this was possible with the confidence which Allah the Almighty has bestowed upon us.

Our journey started from very little – merely nothing – and today by the grace and will of Allah we have expanded our operations in disaster relief; medical provision; education; technical skills provision; water; and social development projects. Further, we believe that vast vistas of opportunities lie ahead of us.

I am deeply indebted to our donors and I would like to express my gratitude for their support. With the relentless of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are entering a time of great change and challenges. A strong financial foundation is necessary for us to continue doing our work. We request your ongoing support so that together we can make Pakistan a prosperous nation not only today, but for generations to come InshAllah!

May Allah accept these efforts for the betterment of our people and society! (Ameen)

Our Journey

Team Karachi Welfare Society (International) ® is a humanitarian and development organization, registered in Pakistan under the Societies Registration Act, XXI of 1860, having KAR No. 191 of 2015-16 and head-quartered in Karachi and implementing social welfare initiatives throughout Pakistan. Deserving marginalized communities are assisted through our operations irrespective of race, faith, color, age, economic status, or political opinion. We work with marginalized deserving communities to overcome the impacts of inequalities and lead peaceful, dignified and resilient lives.

TK’s journey began over a decade ago, when Pakistan was hit by massive rains and flooding in 2009-10. Realizing the quantum of disaster and the havoc which it created, lead to a group of philanthropists to join hands in providing immediate relief to the affected communities.

Owing to continuous disasters in Pakistan and the urgent need of relief items to the already poverty struck communities led Team Karachi to formalize their operations in 2015-16. Our organization is comprised of a committed governing board and a diverse team which works through a robust framework while maintaining strong Compliance with Shariah Principles. 

Our focus areas include: Emergencies, Education, Water projects, Rozgar and self-sustainability projects including different skills development programs, Rashan, Qurbani, Tree planting, food distribution etc
