Professional Studies

A doctor by profession, he completed his MBBS from King Edward Medical College Lahore in 1982, it is a lifelong wish for many students to receive their professional education from King Edward Medical College as it is oldest and most prestigious institute in the history of Pakistan. Over the course of time, King Edward has produced many remarkable surgeons and medical professionals working throughout the world on very honorable positions.

But Dr. Amjad Saqib had bigger goals for himself, he wanted to do something remarkable for the country. He started pursuing higher education towards public administration, joined University of the Punjab and completed Bachelors in 1984.

Pakistan Administrative Services (PAS)

After completing his Bachelors, Dr. Amjad joined Pakistan Administrative Services (PAS) in 1985 and started working in the administrative sector of Pakistan which made him very much familiar with the problems that our people have to face and his love for the people of his country grew. In 2003, he resigned from the civil service, he has also been providing consultancy services to the Asian Development Bank, International Labor Organization, UNICEF, World Bank and the Canadian International Development Agency.

Akhuwat-First Ever Interest Free Microfinance Program

In 2001, Dr. Amjad Saqib laid the foundation of Akhuwat which is envisioned on Islamic Principles of Qarz E Hasna and the sole mission of the foundation is poverty alleviation. Akhuwat progresses in interest free loans, building religious centers, turning its borrowers in donors and volunteer work.

A new cause is underway that is Akhuwat University, this university will be a new breakthrough in the educational sector of Pakistan since it is the first ever no fee residential university, where students from all over Pakistan will come to study on merit and will receive free higher education.

As Akhuwat is a Non-Government Organization so it is hard to build an educational institute relying on the limited funds. PKR 100 Million is the estimated cost required to build up the university but sadly only PKR 2 Million have been raised yet. We are sure Akhuwat is working tirelessly to gather the funds but we also need to step up and donate generously for this noble cause as it is for our future generation.

Sitara E Imtiaz

On 23rd March, 2010 Dr. Amjad Saqib was honored with Sitara E Imtiaz by President of Islamic Republic of Pakistan because of the untiring and gratuitous efforts put forth by Dr. Amjad towards the future of Pakistan.
