About us

We are Roshan Aaj – Akhter Hameed Khan Foundation, a non-profit NGO operating in Pakistan’s urban slums and informal settlements. Our mission is women-centred, inspired by the ideas of renowned Pakistani social scientist Akhter Hameed Khan. We empower low-income communities through grassroots mobilisation, providing access to information and essential skills, and facilitating access to resources. Our collaborative efforts with communities aim to discover sustainable solutions for women’s economic empowerment, household prosperity, and overall well-being.

Areas of Expertise


In underserved urban communities, We aim to transform this reality through our community-based Aapis program, guided by the value of sisterhood and support. 

Economic Empowerment

The under-represented women of urban slums are constrained by low educational attainment, mobility, structural barriers, systemic gender discrimination, and inequalities


Started as a Library for under-privileged children and young people, the Digital Education Center is now a learning space in Dhok Hassu-Mangtal Rawalpindi

Our Outreach

Our projects cover all across Pakistan. Starting from the Orangi Pilot Project (1980) to our Urban Impact Lab (2022). We have worked to address pressing challenges in the most impoverished urban communities, focusing on water and sanitation, healthcare, home-based education, microcredit, gender-based violence, governance, aid effectiveness, and evidence-based decision-making.
