Sir Anwar and his fellow Directors have remained cognizant of how fortunate they have been and how important social mobility has been to their journey. At the heart of the family’s and the Group’s corporate philosophy is the desire to help those less fortunate and to empower communities across the UK and Pakistan. The Group does this through the Bestway Foundation as well as the CSR initiatives of each of its subsidiaries.
Bestway Foundation was established in 1987 by Sir Anwar as the charitable arm of Bestway Group. The Bestway Foundation is funded out of the profits of Bestway Group and focuses and operates in both the UK and Pakistan.
Bestway Foundation is focused predominantly in the areas of education and healthcare as these are the key factors that have the greatest impact on social mobility and advancement - a topic that is very personal to the Directors.
By focusing on these sectors, both independently and in partnership with specialist organisations, we believe in empowering disadvantaged sections of local communities through promoting economic regeneration and full employment.
Bestway Foundation has supported local communities through engagement with universities, hospitals and charities. It has also established village schools, basic health units and medical dispensaries.
The work done by the Bestway Foundation is also supported by each of Bestway Group’s subsidiaries who help fund the Bestway Foundation but who also undertake charitable work of their own.
