The Nasreen and Alam Sher Foundation is a non-governmental, non-religious, non-political and not for profit organization. It was formed in the USA in February 2007 by Dr. Alam Sher and Mrs. Nasreen A. Sher, who realized that people are more focused on areas of wealth and economic growth than giving significance to human care and development. Dr. Sher wanted to emphasize ways to give due respect to human development, freedom, caring about human rights, quality and equality in the lives of ordinary people. He led the formation and organization of the Nasreen and Alam Sher Foundation to promote health, education, humanities and peace in South Asian countries and beyond. The NASF believes that human development cannot be assessed with the economic growth of the country. It is about creating an environment in which people can demonstrate their capabilities and optimize its utilization.
