Engro Foundation announced the recipients of I Am The Change (IATC) Impact Awards for 2018-19 in a ceremony held today. In addition to the senior management of Engro, from the private, public, and the development sectors were also in attendance.

A flagship initiative of Engro Foundation, IATC envisions to empower organizations making sustainable impact in the lives of people in Pakistan. The IATC Impact Award is awarded in the two categories of Social Development, for nonprofit organizations, and Social Enterprise, for profit-oriented organizations tackling critical social issues. The recipients in each category were awarded PKR 2 million after a rigorous selection process by an external jury.

This year, the IATC Impact Award in the category of Social Development was presented to the Association of Rehabilitation of the Physically Disabled (ARPD), a Peshawar-based nonprofit working to empower people with disabilities. The IATC Impact Award in the category of Social Enterprise was presented to TRIAC (Pvt) Ltd, for their work in bridging the communication gap in the hearing impaired community.

Speaking at the occasion, Ghias Khan – President & CEO, Engro Corporation said, “We strongly believe in the importance of community investments and promise to continue supporting organizations tackling complex societal challenges on the ground. Our business strategy of expanding into areas essential to Pakistan’s economic and social development further reflects our commitment towards creating a sustainable future for the country.”

Addressing the audience, Favad Soomro, Head of Engro Foundation, said, “I Am The Change is an initiative that celebrates and supports trailblazers who are not only benefiting people through their work, but also have a sustainable model that can be scaled up to increase social impact.  Our focus through this campaign is essentially to help and empower these change-makers so that they may expand the magnitude of their work with the masses.”

The recipients of the Impact Award were selected based on the scope of their work, level of impact, number of beneficiaries, and the ability to replicate the program in other geographies among other key considerations.
