Gender Equality is vital if we want to move forward in a world that is more developed, and gives equal opportunities to all its citizens. At The MNR Foundation, we are prioritizing this issue, because we believe that it is another one of the most important causes that the world needs to focus on. Two of the main solutions to this issue, are Women Empowerment and Girls' Education. We have been working on both of these, and helping advance the fight for Gender Equality locally in Toronto and through our various projects worldwide, using advocacy, storytelling and development.



We're working to create change globally through advocacy efforts that call on world leaders to invest in girls' education and make it a priority. If we want girls to be given equal opportunities to succeed, it is vital for us to work with world leaders. Our advocacy efforts have been conducted so far through collaborating with other organizations and initiatives like Feminae Carta.

Feminae Carta

Feminae Carta is the first digital advocacy tool of its kind which aims to make gender equality a policy priority globally. It advocates for a world in which women and girls can not only dream big, but also be able to realize their dreams through investments in their well-being, voices, and participation. It is backed by the stories and perspectives of women and girls in every corner of the world.


We have used storytelling to raise awareness about gender equality, women empowerment and girls' education. We have also shared our personal work for girls' education in our village in Pakistan through videos we produced on our YouTube channel, blog posts on our website and through our social media. We have collaborated with Disney, the UN Girl Up Campaign, and more women-empowered organizations to share their mission with the world and raise awareness.

Our documentary on girls' education in Pakistan


We have been taking action for Gender Equality by working in-the-field around the world. Whether it is running a workshop, event, or inspiring girls to continue to go to school. We know that the most impactful projects are the ones that happen in-person, when we come together and empower one another.

Girls' Education
in Pakistan

We began our activism journey in our village in Pakistan when we were eight years old. We visited the school that our grandmother had donated the land to build, and learned that those girls were going to quit school when they reached grade 5. Our desire to make our grandmother's dream for the girls come true led us to inspiring them to continue their education. We ran workshops with them, spoke to their parents, and made sure to spend time to them every time we went to Pakistan on family trips. During a trip in 2015, we learned that some of those girls were actually going on to high school. This was a huge win for us. We returned to Pakistan again in 2019 to continue our work, and film a documentary on the status of girls' education in the country.
