Pakistan Poverty Alleviation Fund (PPAF) provides financing through both “grants and loans“ organisations may receive both or any one form of assistance. The themes of social inclusion, gender, and environment are the common threads running through all projects and programmes and make up substantive components within all our work.
The programmes are carried out through organizations that are non-governmental in nature with an underlying focus on a community-led, demand-driven approach emphasizing on community ownership right from identification and preparation to implementation and finally management of these interventions in a sustained fashion.
Our Partner Organizations (POs) mobilize households, organize them into value driven, inclusive, multitier community institutions. The multitier institutions are founded on the philosophy of aggregating voice of the poor at a higher level.

The partner organizations are identified through rigorous and transparent eligibility criteria. They are expected to share the same values as the PPAF and must have the capacity to implement the project components in a professional and pro-active manner.

The selection of partner organizations is an on-going process, whereby new ones are added and others who have not performed may be excluded.

The Board of Directors, upon recommendation of the CEO, is responsible for authorizing changes in the partner organizations. The CEO is responsible for obtaining agreement on the eligibility criteria and any changes therein from donors with whom such understanding has been reached.
