KARACHI: The non-profit Saylani Welfare International Trust has joined forces with Faysal Bank Limited (FBL) to launch a scheme aimed at creating self-employment opportunities for unemployed individuals from marginalised communities in Karachi.

At a ceremony held at Faysal Bank’s head office, rickshaws were handed over to jobless individuals from underprivileged backgrounds. This initiative enables them to earn a dignified livelihood for their families.

Yousaf Hussain, CEO and president of Faysal Bank, expressed immense pleasure in supporting the Saylani Trust’s charitable mission. He praised the trust’s commitment to providing immediate relief to disadvantaged people while also focusing on sustainable development opportunities.

Maulana Muhammad Bashir Farooq, founding chairman of Saylani Trust, expressed sincere gratitude to Faysal Bank for joining forces with the non-profit. "The provision of rickshaws at discounted prices through an interest-free loan scheme represents a significant step toward empowering jobless individuals," Farooq said.

He said the trust has also launched mass IT training and technical skill programs, enabling deserving students to become economically self-sufficient.
