Thar Foundation has emerged as a powerful force for good in the region of Tharparkar where its interventions across a broad array of high impact areas has already proven to be an effective impetus in bringing about a positive change in the region.

Adopting global best practices for social development, the Thar Foundation aligns its interventions with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Testifying its commitment with welfare of the local population, the Foundation has pledged to pursue the selected SDGs for Islamkot and make it the country’s first SDGs-accelerated Tehsil by 2024. The Foundation, established to improve life standard of the indigenous communities, pursues various sustained interventions in key sectors of human development like Health, Education, Safe Drinking Water, Sustainable Livelihood, Women Empowerment, and Human Resource Development.

Hidden away in a cocoon away from civilization, Thar and its people represent an ageless, timeless beauty and a way of living that has long been lost. Yet what remains a striking feature of the desert landscape is the resilience and tenacity of its people who continue to live a century behind the rest of the country. Regarded as one of the poorest districts in Sindh. Tharparkar ranks lowest on Human Development Index (HDI) in almost all districts of Sindh; yet the harsh reality has not changed the humble, harmonious nature of the Thari people who revel in little that they have – portraying an effortless spirituality that is born out of their synchronicity with the desert and the lessons it teaches them.
