International support charityAkran has sought to help poor and disadvantaged people by improving their quality of life in international and local communities, enabling them to become more self-reliant and independent. We endeavour to do this in the most efficient and effective way possible, by distributing funds and resources directly to charities on the ground and into the hands of recipients. Akran partners with organizations around the globe to support initiatives and programs that respond in a meaningful way to community needs and priorities.

Reaching those who need our help the most:

  • Children from underprivileged backgrounds and orphans.
  • Abandoned or abused children living in Government care.
  • Families living in slum communities.
  • Physically and mentally disabled children.
  • Children without an opportunity for education.

Akran operates on a global scale to create and support relevant and effective initiatives that truly make a difference in the everyday lives of disadvantaged people. We are committed to investing our time, expertise and resources to help develop and maintain vibrant and sustainable communities.

Internationally, Akran supports many community initiatives throughout Africa and Asia, including:

  • Providing essential basic amenities.
  • Grants and educational support for underprivileged students.
  • Medical and dental care.
  • Provision of supplies to hospitals.
  • Promotion of educational opportunities.
  • Promotion of self-sufficiency.
  • Provision of sustainable water supply systems for clean drinking water and hygiene.
  • Sanitation services
  • Construction of schoolhouses for children in remote villages.
  • Provision of school supplies and libraries.

Our community commitment is shared across our entire organization. Through Akran's Employee Matching Gifts Program, employees are encouraged to make personal contributions to qualified charities and The Akran Foundation matches those contributions on a 1-for-1 basis.
