Originating from humble beginnings in East Africa. the Sumar-Lakhani family knew that someday, they would return to support the impoverished, unwaged, and underprivileged. The family foundation aims to bring forth the best from nonprofits and driven individuals, worldwide. Working now for ten years, SLF is involved in several projects worldwide, and we’re just getting started. The Sumar-Lakhani Foundation provided funding for eight microfinance loans for our sewing students at the end of 2014. These microfinance loans will initially transform the lives of eight villagers, with the ability to put their skills learnt with us into action. However, the number of people these loans will eventually affect is undetermined, as this is a self-sustainable project, with all repayments and interest being used to provide more sewing machine loans.
