Acumen fund - Pakistan fellows program

In partnership with JS Bank, the Mahvash and Jahangir Siddiqui Foundation and the Edmond de Rothschild Foundations, Acumen is working to develop the next generation of social change leaders who are building innovative businesses and strong institutions across Pakistan.

Twenty individuals were selected out of over 500 candidates to participate in its first year of the year-long training, while simultaneously continuing to pursue their social impact initiatives. Fellows' initiatives range from creating an interest-free microfinance institution, to a disaster relief project and to a teaching training programme.
