SM Foundation, a CSR initiative Credence Group aims at providing education to the marginalized people especially from remote areas. The foundation has been developed so that the deprived and talented individuals can fulfill their quest for quality education.
In 2011, 60 percent population of Pakistan consisted of youth and only 58 percent of total population was literate. The countries cannot grow and flourish without education. With less than 60 percent of literacy rate, Pakistan cannot excel and even take part in the economic race of developed nations. It is need of the day to have educated youth in order to leave a positive mark for generations to come and be known as an educated and a civilized nation. There are many brilliant people in Pakistan who cannot educate due to monetary reasons. SM Foundation is a platform to help such children and youngsters to pursue their dreams and help them build a brighter future for themselves in the country.
The Credence Group has taken this initiative and SM Education Foundation will act as a facilitator as it intends to assist the light of education prevail in every nook and corner of the country so that the Trust will be able to give a better and brighter future to the generations to follow.
The foundation has taken this positive step and aspires to not only provide primary and secondary but higher education as well. It is done through a proper system of Zakat and Qarz-e-Hasna. A program has been devised to ensure that only intelligent and deserving get the appropriate assistance for their education. There is no discrimination on the basis of cast, creed or color. Anyone who is talented yet impoverished and deprived gets the support. Those people who have no access to the funding systems are at priority.
SM Foundation is optimistic that it will bring a positive change in society.
