Introduction

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.
