Kiran Foundation’s work expands into the community through its welfare support programs and community-based projects. The problems we face in society are multi-faceted and complex. Poverty adds to the existing trauma, crippling one’s ability to recover. We work with the larger community through various projects and by providing financial, social, medical, and emotional support to families in need.
With families affected by severe multi-layered trauma and poverty, Kiran provides financial support for ration, house-rent and/or other necessities.
In the time of urgent need, Kiran facilitates people to get the necessary treatment which may be unaffordable.
Kiran supports deserving students, particularly girls, in their journey to attain higher education, by providing financial aid and scholarships.
The Bachat Bazaar is a marketplace for the Kiran Ambassador families. Friends and donors provide various products, that are then sold at 25% discounted prices. It happens once every three months.
All proceeds from the sales are spent on a cause chosen by the mothers themselves.
At the heart of Bachatt Bazaar is the concept of “Paying it Forward”.
With the help of our friends, we collect everyday items that the families of students cannot buy otherwise
Families of Kiran students buy these items for 25% of market rates
All proceedings from the Bachatt Bazaar go to a charitable cause that the mothers decide
In the spirit of entrepreneurship, mothers are encouraged to set up home-made food stalls to initiate financial independence.

They make things happen like magic!
LSY ensures that the the KSS Alumni stay connected with the school and continue to learn, by arranging weekend workshops regularly.
LSY organizes events aimed to spread awareness about rights and responsibilities, and mobilizes the youth to address problems faced by the community.
LSY has organized several conferences for the youth of Lyari, aimed towards honing talents and skills, and increasing their exposure to the world.
When I came to Lyari I had no idea I would become a permanent member of Kiran Foundation. Kiran has been in my life for more than a decade now. It has made me see the positive side in every difficult situation and I’m proud of my association with the foundation.
