Due to endemic poverty, the majority of young people in Pakistan do not have the opportunity to experience a childhood. The literacy rate among young men is estimated at 53%, while rates for young women are at 42%. The youth unemployment rate stands at about 15%.

 

Karachi United (KU) was established in 1996 to promote football at the grassroots level and achieve football excellence in Pakistan. The organisation has now evolved to encourage community development through football. KU’s objectives are achieved via a two-pronged approach: the first involves establishing Centers of Excellence (CoEs) in various parts of the city that provide free football coaching to underprivileged children and work on the four-tier FEVH approach - football, education, vocational training and health awareness.

 

KU’s second major initiative is Football Development - establishing forums for exchange and discussion such as leagues and tournaments. Football Development also supports infrastructure development and football related education for a sustainable industry and provides opportunities including employment.
