Mr. Shaukat Rizvi, President PEF-Canada Chapter
After retirement, I became a seniors’ enthusiast / advocate and dedicated to giving back initiatives. I firmly believe in the mission of PEF and its support to more than 3000 students over last 11 years has had a major impact on alleviating poverty in Pakistan. I also believe that it offers the best return on investment to society on a donor’s investment. My ambition is to increase the funding from current 25 to 100 students from Canada with in 3 year.

Mr. Riaz Ghani
After hearing the life stories of PEF Alumni, I felt compelled to join PEF Canada as an obligation and a privilege that Allah (S.W.T) has given me. I was excited by the opportunity to participate in a project of transforming the lives of these aspiring young men and women, who has done whatever was in their hands, but need just a little help to complete their professional education. This is what I call "charity at its best", it has given me a purpose and a true feeling of fulfillment.
