Mian Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif
We are providing maximum resources for empowerment of youth especially for deserving but talented male and female students. I have no doubt that every rupee spent by the Government for this purpose is not an expenditure but an investment, which will pave the way for future dividends for our state and society.PEEF is a manifestation of my Government's commitment to "leave no smart child behind". The journey of PEEF from an idea to an established institution through financial assistance and outreach to more than 200,000 deserving but talented students across Pakistan is a dream come true.
PEEF is not only providing financial assistance but is actually creating a level playing field especially for the under-privileged students by giving them an opportunity to scale the ladder of personal and national development. It is a fate-changing project that is transforming lives of hundreds of thousands of people across the country. It is not only an empowerment tool for the powerless but a ray of hope for the hopeless as well..
I would like to express my deep appreciation for the whole PEEF team for its sustained efforts in the materialization of this dream. I sincerely hope that PEEPS management would continue to work with zeal and commitment to serve the nation and make PEEF a resounding success.

Message From CEO PEEF
Dr. Kamran Shams
2017 marks a landmark achievement for PEEF. This year, we awarded our 200,000th scholarship and transformed the lives of over 200,000 talented, persistent young boys and girls. These recipients were the most deserving students from less privileged section of society; they preserved to study hard amidst a variety of adversities, such as, income limitations, geographic locations, and physical disabilities. They traveled long distances to school, many of them worked after school to contribute to their family's income, a large number helped take care of elderly parents and younger siblings, and some gave up, only starting over again.
In the coming months, PEEF aspires to expand its endowment so that it can continue to improve its targeting and thus its scholarships. With help from generous partners, we hope that, in the coming years, we can meet our aspiration and transform the lives of millions of needy students across the country.
