Retaining the history and heritage of Karachi, The Dawood Foundation restored and renovated a 1930’s house (Ghar in Urdu). TDF Ghar is open to public with an aim to promote informal learning spaces in Karachi. It is a platform where people from all ethnicities can come together to share their culture and indulge in discussions about science and arts.

TDF Ghar is a tribute to this city. With a view of the Mazar-e-Quaid and original hand-crafted tiles, Hajiani Hanifa Bai’s 1930s home is an enchanting sanctuary in the heart of old Karachi’s Jamshed Quarters. The home retains its heritage features, but has been transformed into a public space, to re-live the true spirit of residents of this old cosmopolitan city.

Shahab Ghani & Associates volunteered to assist TDF in restoring TDF Ghar as part of their contribution to the city.

TDF Ghar is based on a self-sustainability business model. The revenue generated through rentals and tickets is re-invested in the upkeep and development of the Ghar.
