Shafi Gluco Chem very actively participates in the education of the less privileged in our society. The Group has taken this task upon it as a personal mission and has set up Colleges and Schools to provide education free or at an affordable cost to the underprivileged. Details of our contributions towards CSR are as below:
With the belief that an educated and healthy society can ensure sustainable development and character building of the nation, the Shafi Group established the "Muhammad Shafi Trust" in April of 1991.
Muhammad Shafi Trust has constructed and also operates under its supervision the Muhammad Shafi Educational Complex in Karachi which offers primary, secondary and technical education to almost a thousand children.
The Zakia Begum Iqra Primary School is a purpose-built campus totally financed and freely run by the Shafi Group at Gulberg Town, Factory Area, Sheikhupura (Punjab). All books, Tuition Fees, and other administrative expenses are borne by the Directors of Shafi Group.
The Muhammad Shafi Trust announces scholarships to talented and deserving students of different colleges and universities in Punjab and Sindh. Moreover, it also provides financial assistance to a number of government schools working in remote areas in the district of Lasbella. It has a stitching training center for women, and it helps them earn for their families.
Shafi Gluco Chem is very sensitive towards the health conditions of its workers as well as the community. Each year, Shafi Gluco Chem initiates inter-departmental sports, namely Shafi Memorial Sports Festivals, where indoor and outdoor competitions provide a very healthy environment to its employees. Trophies are given to the winning teams of these contests.
Shafi Gluco Chem extends its medical facility beyond First-Aid and Social Security and goes for the reimbursement of medical treatment and maternity expenses incurred to families of workers. Besides this, Shafi Gluco Chem each year donates funds to numerous charitable institution and hospitals like Shoukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital (Lahore), Agha Khan Hospital (Karachi), Gulab Devi Chest Hospital (Lahore), etc. for the cure of patients of cancer, tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS.
To raise the standard of living of community members, SGC extends interest-free loans on a need-basis to workers. It also provides discounts on financing the travelling facilities to the workers. Furthermore, SGC also gives monthly stipends to deserving persons like widows, ill, and poor students to help them in their needs and raise the standard of their living.
Over the years, Shafi Gluco Chem has striven to fulfill not only its business ambitions but also its social obligations.
