I Am Karachi
As a response to the violence taking place on the streets of Karachi and the hesitance of the populace to access public spaces, on 25th December 2014, concerned citizens and civil society organizations of Karachi came together to initiate a city-wide movement by the name of I AM KARACHI (IAK).
IAK is committed to promoting socio-cultural activities as vehicles for countering violent extremism, re-building society, eradicating divisiveness and promoting peace and harmony. This is done through arts, culture, sports and dialogue, appealing to the citizens and the softer side of the city.
The aim of this campaign is to re-ignite hope, pride and ownership in the citizens of Karachi and collectively restore its vibrancy and cultural heritage. Karachi is known both for its philanthropy and business acumen, which IAK aims to align to, ensuring a greater and more sustainable impact.
