SHED Priorities & Strengths

Our Priorities:

  • Focus on Family – We work with poor families who are the worst affected by poverty. Thru a collaborative, selfless effort with others, regardless of faith, color or race, SHED plays the lead role in bringing about changes or transformation within families and communities.
  • Organizing the Poor – Creating organizations of and for the poor are at the heart of our work. Our cell groups, mostly women coming together, form the core body that promotes living out the spirit of volunteerism and cooperation.  The dynamics of an organized grouping for the poor provide a powerful forum where life-long lessons are learned and lives are changed.
  • Restoration of Human Dignity –   Continuing financial education and value formation seminars are priorities to break the shackles of exploitation and deliver the poor from the ancient bondage to poverty. Through these, individuals within groups are empowered to form their own thoughts on matters that could influence decision-making affecting their homes or communities.



Our Strengths:
  • Motivated by the Vision: Our motivation is inspired by the vision of  “a world free of poverty”, and the accompanying mission to help in the realization of that grand dream.  SHED’s universally-driven principles and values are deeply rooted in promoting a culture of: Justice, Excellence, Service with Integrity, Unity and Stewardship with Dignity.
  • Passion and Commitment to the Vision: Our hearts are rooted in the cry of the poor, abandoned by the harshness of life’s realities. SHED’s passion and commitment to rescue the poor should turn dreams into fulfillment of hopes.  SHED remains committed to pursue all that is right, but sustainable, in all its programs.
  • Proven Track Record – Our principals are major contributors to the development success story of the value of microfinance to help eradicate poverty in the Pakistan. Our leadership’s 10-year experience  in pushing the frontiers of poverty eradication is a testament to SHED’s commitments.
