WHO WE ARE

TARS Foundation® is a most trusted and successful non-governmental, non-profit and non-political charity organization registered in KPK province of Pakistan under Social Welfare Ordinance 1961 (XLVI 1961) and under the Societies Act, XXI 1860, working since 2015 to provide Timely Aid and Relief Support (TARS) to thousands of people in Peshawar, Pakistan.

Founded by a local patron – Abdul Majid Qureshi and then joined by other volunteers determined to make a difference, the foundation has since then supported thousands of families and many other individuals in various aspects.

The name “TARS” is derived from the abbreviation of Timely Aid & Relief Support, which is our slogan in Urdu as "بروقت امداد اور مصیبت سے نجات میں سہارا" and this word "TARS" when pronounced also depicts Urdu word “ترس”, which means to have sympathy, and compassion of helping any living creature in need.

OUR HISTORY

After 2010, with the fast-growing use of social media sites (specifically Facebook) throughout the world, unfortunately majority of these sites’ users from Pakistan were found discussing politics, and spreading negativity on social media sites, thereby not only wasting their time but also losing their abilities of doing something positive and productive for their country.

That was the time when Mr. Abdul Majid Qureshi, from Peshawar Pakistan, an IT Specialist in an engineering company in Peshawar, who was enthusiastic about helping the needy people of his city Peshawar, and had been already feeding the homeless people daily from his own salary, thought about changing people’s mind about making the positive use of social media sites. He started to highlight his humanitarian works on social media for the purpose to divert the people’s mind from spreading negativity into doing something positive for their society and Country.

Within a very short time, inspired from Mr. Majid’s noble cause over social media, people from inside Pakistan and abroad joined his cause of helping the needy people. In just few years, that mission of feeding only a few homeless people by Mr. Majid by his own salary, spread and with the monetarily and voluntarily support of his followers, transformed into helping thousands of people in different ways, which later on resulted into the inception of a well known charity organization, namely TARS Foundation.
