PALS is a not-for-profit organization registered under Section 42 of the Securities & Exchange Commission of Pakistan. PALS relies on private & corporate donations, government grants, corporate sponsorships and adventure tourism services to meet its financial needs. Since 2004, PALS lifeguards have rescued over 4,600 people and thereby positively impacted as many families.
The mission at PALS is to save lives around aquatic environments across Pakistan, as a free public service.
Providing a free rescue & safety service to the public visiting aquatic environments across Pakistan is at the core of PALS. In addition, PALS helps alleviate poverty by training and employing people from the poor and impoverished coastal communities across the country. This gives the local community employment opportunities and a skill set qualification that they can use to get employment as lifeguards locally in clubs and hotels and internationally.
We are here to safeguard and protect every Pakistani. Race, sect, ethnicity, religion, gender, age and social background is immaterial to us. We are here to protect and safeguard anyone and everyone that visits the beaches
and aquatic environments that we patrol.
PALS patrols most of the public beaches of Karachi.
