About us

HIVE is a social-impact organization working to address issues of extremism and marginalization through community-led research, facilitative grant-making, upstream mobilization, innovative campaigning, needs-based mentorship and participatory collaborations. HIVE strives to work for an inclusive, equal and peaceful Pakistan.
Pakistan is surely passing through a great “transition.” The ever-expanding youth-bulge, coupled with unemployment, inequality, injustice, and lack of social services paints a bleak picture of our future. More than 60 million people still live below the poverty line and our Human Development Index (HDI) is the lowest in South Asia. Adding to the misery, the tendency of youth towards violent extremism (VE) harms our collective persona and purges our ethos of humane dispositions. Many have been disillusioned and believe that nothing can happen in Pakistan that will rid her of her burdens. HIVE Pakistan does not concur.

We believe that a better- Pakistan is possible. We believe that our glorious past, diverse traditions, poignant culture, literary character, and intellectual capital combined with the recent progress in ICT, infrastructure development and fight against extremism bring us, as a community, in a unique position to navigate through our problems and manifest a reality that is closer to our dreams. We believe that this philanthropy obsessed nation can collaborate with the public and private sector in a meaningful manner to instigate processes of social change that will help us evolve as a collective. It is with this belief that HIVE Pakistan was formed.
At HIVE- young professionals with unique qualifications and experiences obsessed with a dream of a better Pakistan come together to solve society’s most daunting challenges. Having worked in over 40 cities across Pakistan in the last 10 years, the team at HIVE has not only talked but walked-the-walk towards its shared dream.
We welcome every corporation, donor agency, NGO, activist, scholar, artist, and concerned citizen to come forward and join hands with us. Let us create innovative solutions, campaigns, interventions, and projects that will preserve the ‘Spirit of Pakistan’.
