Asif Ali Gohar is the Founder and the first Chairman of the Trust. He was a businessman and in 1989 established AGP (Pvt) Limited, a pharmaceutical manufacturing company specializing in licensing products from European and American multinational companies. Within a short span of a few years AGP rose to be amongst the top 10 Pharmaceutical companies out of over 600, including 30 multinational organizations, operating in the country. Though a businessman, he is a philanthropist at heart. In 2014 he disposed off his interest in the pharmaceutical business and in order to pursue his passion of helping the disenfranchised segment of society he established a charitable trust based on the same values of kindness and compassion which he had instilled in his Company. The trust is named after his mother.
