AAB is an organization that works towards better education and healthcare facilities in Karachi. The organization also helps restore peace and tolerance, and human, civil and democratic rights, especially focusing on women and children in Sindh.

Led by Shazia Asif Khan – a motivational speaker, trainer and human rights activist – AAB came to life in 2008, by successfully running educational projects for underprivileged women and children.

Shazia has over 10 years of professional experience and trains her own staff, school teachers and volunteers; motivating and inspiring them to work for the underprivileged with empathy and dedication.

Shazia was motivated to abolish kidnapping and sexual abuse of young girls and boys. Therefore, she started providing free schooling to underprivileged children in the evening in the Gulshan-e-Iqbal area in Karachi.

Her project school won the ‘International School Award’ from the British Council in 2015.

Shazia started the Minerva Education System, a project run under AAB in March 2008.

Minerva Montessori and Elementary School aims to promote maximum enrollment, leading to the elimination of sexual violence and child labor in the area.

Shazia says, “We want to help build a stable Pakistan by opening more schools in the area. Violence, abuse and child labor will only stop with awareness and education.”

The organization has several other projects underway, apart from the Minerva Education System.

Shazia envisions satisfying the needs of all those who are deprived and neglected by society and circumstances.

The organization provides food to its project school students on a daily basis. The food drive also continues in the Holy Month of Ramadan by providing the needy with Iftar and during Eid-ul-Azha, when they have a huge meat distribution drive in the slum areas of Gulshan-e-Iqbal.

Shazia and her organization depend on donations and work without any international funding or support from the government.
