The head of the Salman Sufi Foundation was the founder and Director General of the Chief Minister’s Strategic Reforms Unit, Government of Punjab from 2013 – 2018. The Strategic Reforms Unit took numerous steps to alleviate the problems of its citizens through revolutionary public sector reforms, especially in the domain of women’s rights and empowerment.
The unit through its innovative measures devised a seminal reform to provide an effective system of justice, protection, relief and rehabilitation of violence against women victims. It helped in conceptualising and implementing various revolutionary, historic and groundbreaking reforms to facilitate women in the country such as the Women on Wheels initiative, Punjab Protection of Women Against Violence Act 2016 and Women Protection Authority.
Starting from November 2019 the basis of the Salman Sufi Foundation was laid and we have continued the historic vision of an empowered Pakistan, with women leading from the front. In this short span of time we have ventured into many subjects of national importance ranging from gender equality, economic independence, social and spatial mobility, to safe sanitation, mental well-being, patronage of the Arts and relief campaign for Corona survivors among many more. We have only started and require your support to do more and be more as a collective. Please watch this space for upcoming projects and how you can participate.
