Head Office at Karachi
PEI is a non?governmental, non?profit and non?political organization registered by a Pakistani expatriate in 2002 under society ACT XXI 1860. Today, we are one of the largest Pakistani non?profit rganizations (according to the Pakistan Center for Philanthropy) with bulk of our work in the health sector and $140 million worth of in-kind donations raised since 2011 alone. We pride ourselves in that so far, we have not taken any funds from bilateral donor agencies. We create our own programs and ask public or private sector to join in. PEI is managed by a Board of Directors comprised of prominent professionals.
