About Kafalah Trust

The Kafalah Trust is a non-profit organization that connects low-income and underprivileged people from remote areas with vetted and trusted employers abroad.Developed in a response to addressing birth right privilege and differences in equal opportunity across socioeconomic strata in Pakistan, The Kafalah Trust prevents vulnerable candidates from being exploited by human smugglers operating illegally across Pakistan by providing candidates with safe and legal passage.Our model is to identify, educate and connect candidates with employers abroad by working with reliable partners in Pakistan. By supporting the engagement of low-income and minority groups, we seek to play our part in a prosperous Pakistan and improve income and economic inequality.
