The Charter for Compassion Pakistan has launched the Ramzan Challenge 2013, the objective of which is to teach school students and university students the importance of compassion and social welfare. These students will be trained to become “Agents of Compassion” who can subsequently become the role models for others in society.
The Charter for Compassion Pakistan is a local initiative based upon the Charter for Compassion, a document that transcends religious, ideological, and national differences, inspiring worldwide community-based acts of compassion. The document was drafted by a multi-faith, multi-national council of thinkers and leaders. It is a cooperative effort to restore compassionate thinking and action to the centre of religious, moral and political life. The Charter for Compassion initiative in Pakistan is led locally by volunteers based out of Karachi.
