ARC commenced its work in Pakistan in 2002 with providing assistance to Afghan refugees and host communities. It joined international disaster response effort following enormous humanitarian challenges caused by the 2005 Kashmir Earthquake and 2010-11 Floods affecting some 35 million people across the Country. Since 2015, ARC has reinvented its program strategy in Pakistan. ARC is now both a trusted provider of emergency and relief services and also a front runner in tackling the most pressing development challenges in the country.

Focused on innovation, high-quality delivery and geographic diversification, ARC is bringing new value to the people of Pakistan. Today ARC stands amongst the leading partners of Government of Pakistan that are contributing to education, health and socio-economic empowerment through social innovation. We’ve found that something incredible will result as long as we begin the journey with amazing people, agree on a destination and move together towards it transparently and open to possibility.
