Our Work

The SSA Foundation is organised as a collection of Working Groups that are composed of experts in each field. Each Working Group promotes research and understanding within their specialty.

Working Groups undertake a wide range of activities from hosting specialist conferences, to contributing NICE guidelines, and running community education campaigns, to name but a few.

Our Mission

SSA Foundation works around the globe to save lives, defeat poverty and achieve social justice.

Our Vision

We seek a world of hope, tolerance and social justice, where poverty has been overcome and all people live with dignity and security.

Our Focus

We put women and girls in the center because we know that we cannot overcome poverty until all people have equal rights and opportunities.

Our Values


We believe in urgent action, innovation, and the necessity of transformation—within the world and our own organization.


We are accountable to the people and partners we humbly serve, transparently sharing our results, stories and lessons.


We know that by embracing differences, actively including a variety of voices, and joining together we can solve the world’s most complex problems.


We challenge ourselves to the highest level of learning and performance, tapping the best of the human spirit to create impact.


We believe in the equal value of every human being and the importance of respecting and honoring each individual; we know that change happens through people.

Chairman’s Message

SSAF has so far been able to develop its history as socially responsible to deliver in health and education sectors by contributing in the largest interest of the community of Pakistan. Among other projects, we are ready to undertake:

  • Terminate violation of women rights
  • Awareness on child abuse
  • Provide legal aid to prisoners
  • Provide training to women & children

We feel much confident to meet all challenges with the support of our diverse volunteer force. Though our team’s social responsibility is a source of pride, we continue to reach for economic alleviation and social justice.
