Reach in all over Pakistan with three regional offices

Thespianz Foundation flourishes awareness and learning on the strong social topics for individuals and families in Pakistan’s most under-served communities through Innovative Awareness Theatres, Social String Puppetry, Advocacy, Training, Workshops, lectures, and festivals.

Founded in 2010 as a not-for-profit organization in Karachi, Pakistan, Thespianz Foundation features a strong community of performers, writers, directors, and creative heads that utilize social theater, string puppetry, workshops, training, and lectures as a sharp medium to reach out to marginalized communities throughout Pakistan. These performing arts create powerful tools to convey topics of awareness about social justice, human rights, Gender-Based Violence, gender inequality, education and health, women’s and children’s rights, disability rights, peace, and tolerance, and anti-drug campaigns.

Thespianz Foundation is changing the narrative for those living in ruraland urban Pakistan by empowering them with an increased understanding of their world.
