Fund Raising

Its an important saying “ A positive attitude is the key to success”

If you want to do something then never think about the failure, just do it bravely with positive attitude. It brings optimism into your life, and makes it easier to avoid worries and negative thinking. If you adopt it as a way of life, it would bring constructive changes into your life, and makes them happier, brighter and more successful.

The Edhi Foundation provides a number of services, emergency and non-emergency, to the general public without any distinction of religion, for him the only religion is Islam. Edhi foundation believes in getting donation from the general masses not from the rich people only.

Abdul Sattar Edhi place was unchallenged, After Edhi, charity faces dip in donations. Donations to Foundation declined at large extent after Edhi Sahb. which cause various hurdles in carrying activities and serving humanity.

We as a team of four members Hanan, Ayesha, Farah and Faiza decided to contribute for Edhi Foundation to serve humanity. We discussed different ideas and came up with many solutions in order to collect funds. Although all these solutions were amazing and constructive. We pick up top three solutions.

Fund Raising with positive attitude

Top three Solutions:

1> Reach out to our educational institutes which include our class mates, college and university mates and faculty and tell them about Edhi Foundation briefly and then ask for donation which they can afford easily even a small amount of Rs 5/-. Because Edhi foundation accept from Rs 5/- to hundreds, thousands or millions.

2> Reach out to our relatives, friends, friends of friends even utilizing our whole circle.

3> We will collect the donation in a way Edhi Sahb used to collect. By making stalls , banners, papers and colourful charts. If Edhi begged on the streets it was mainly to call out to people for their participation in donation. He did it for people not for his own self. We will use the same method to collect donation and face the fear of collecting funds from people.


We apply 1st solution of reaching out our educational institutes , and tell them about the contribution of Edhi Sahb. briefly although most of them were already known about his contribtions to serve humanity. And ask for donations, and the results were really really awesome. They welcomed us appreciate our ideas, and told us that:

“Its a nobel deal to serve for humanity without thinking of your own benefits”

As our 1st solution was successful, now we will also apply our next two solution in order to get more and more results.
