Himalayan Wildlife Foundation Charity Profile
The Himalayan Wildlife Foundation (HWF) was instituted in 1993 in Islamabad, Pakistan, with the aim of protecting and managing the country’s natural resources and cultural/built heritage. HWF was registered with Securities & Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP) as a non-profit Guarantee Limited company licensed under Section 42 of the Companies Ordinance, 1984, with a Board of Directors of ten highly esteemed and professional persons.
Recognising the importance of restoring the balance between sustainable development and environment, the HWF works towards empowering local communities by transforming attitudes towards conservation. The various projects supported by the organisation encourage communities to assume ownership of and responsibility for their natural resources and built heritage; help develop the skills required to understand and manage their environment; and augment government capacity to facilitate local conservation efforts.
