The Dawood Foundation believes in empowering individuals through education to create a collective change. From establishing institutions, we have morphed into formulating spaces of learning that serve everyone. Moving from formal education to informal education is exciting, giving our projects more fluidity, dynamism, interactivity and room to try new ways of engaging with people.
The Dawood Foundation (TDF) was the “materialization of a decade old dream” of the founder, Ahmed Dawood which became a reality in 1960. TDF was conceived as an educational foundation whose main focus was to support and promote educational initiatives in the fields of Science, Technology and Research. Over the years it has been heavily concerned with the construction of schools and colleges, but is now moving to undertake projects that are more content and technology based in its knowledge dissemination.
The Dawood Foundation is a registered charitable organisation incorporated under Societies Registration Act, 1860. It is also certified by Pakistan Centre for Philanthropy (PCP) and maintains status of Not-for-Profit Organisation (NPO) under sub-clause (c) of clause (36) of section 2 of the Income Tax Ordinance, 2001.
