WHO WE ARE
Saving 9, incorporated in November 2017, creates communities of care in Pakistan. The name originates from the idiom, ‘a stitch in time saves nine’, and embodies the organization’s core ideal. We believe that by making citizens literate in life saving skills and by mobilizing them, they can work together to tackle the emergencies in health and education that our country is undergoing.
Prevention is better than a cure. That is why our efforts are centered around providing first aid and basic physical and mental health education. It is also why we work closely with schools and teachers to create nurturing environments for students. By providing communities with the capacity to better take care of themselves from within, we are mitigating current and future generations from the damage being caused by decades of neglect in health and education in Pakistan.
Our interdisciplinary team includes 13 Fulbright scholars, as well as first responders, doctors, counsellors, curriculum and teaching experts, teacher educators and urban planners.
