The networking event was a full house with the Belgium, Australian, German and French Ambassadors as well as notables from USAID, United Nations, Asian Development Bank, World Bank, DFID attending. They were joined by many of Pakistan’s top executives as well as international and national donors and Engro Foundation’s partners. A presentation was given by Khalid S. Subhani on the impact made by Engro Corporation and Engro Foundation in the country. Mr. Subhani took the audience through the 50 years of Engro Corporation, its growth, progress and the many, many achievements the organization has had in its 50 years in Pakistan.
As one of the country’s corporate leaders, Engro has a huge responsibility to fulfill and also lead the way in making an impact. Engro Foundation, the company’s CSR arm, had an annual spend of PKR229 million in 2015 – the largest percentage of Engro’s CSR spend goes on Livelihoods; almost PKR63 million in 2015, followed by almost PKR50 million on education. The purpose is to target bottom of the pyramid communities around our business operations for raising their economic conditions, thereby making our value chains strong and sustainable.
The impact that Engro Foundation and Engro Corporation is making along its value chains and in our communities could not have been possible without our donors, who have supported our team wholeheartedly and we hope they will continue to do so.
