Karwan E Ilam


        Karwan-e-Ilm Foundation (KIF) has been working in the field of education with the aim of uplifting the needy but brilliant students coming from all four provinces of the country as well as Gilgit Baltistan, FATA and Azad Kashmir irrespective of color, caste or region of country. This noble cause was initiated in the year 2002, when for the very first time in the history of Pakistan, the esteemed magazine monthly Urdu Digest established a department with the name of Karwan-e-Ilm Department and conducted awards ceremony in the honor of first three positions holders of matric exams from the eight boards of Intermediate and Secondary education based in the province of Punjab. At the same time, financial assistance program was started for needy students among these position holders. After observing the positive impact and response of this first initiative, the management of Urdu Digest decided to continue and extend these services at a country wide level. This led to registration of Karwan-e-Ilm Foundation as a Not-for-Profit organization in the year 2004.
