SRI Home

Swat Relief Initiative (SRI) strives to improve the lives of women and children in Pakistan through healthcare, education, economic growth and a sustainable environment. This non-profit organization also empowers societies through community development, social mobilization and awareness programs to help them achieve a better quality of life.

SRI is a unique organization founded by Zebu Jilani, granddaughter of the last Ruler of Swat, and her husband Arshad Jilani. SRI was created as a platform for all sincere philanthropists to come together as volunteers to help the poor through long term, low cost, sustainable programs in Education, Healthcare, Economic Empowerment, Clean Water and Community Development, which encourage independence and self-reliance for those who have no hope.

At the organizational level, all SRI members work as volunteers and do not take a salary. SRI founders, Zebu and Arshad, pay for all the overhead of the organization from their own pockets, so that ONE HUNDRED percent of all donations go directly towards programs that help disadvantaged women and children.

SRI's founders also stay close to operations on the ground by visiting Pakistan for three months a year to personally monitor projects and participate in the training of beneficiaries and execution of programs.
