Project Description

In a remarkable collaboration for the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust, Kashf Shah and Anish Arif, both prominent Global Leaders in Pakistan’s Chapter of QCT, orchestrated a heartening initiative. Anish Arif, known for her role as an Education Developer and Coordinator at a Higher Education Institution FCCU, united forces with Kashf Shah, Co-chair of QCT’s Pakistan Chapter. Together they have undertaken an ambitious mission of installing a staggering 10,000 bird feeders across Lahore to support environmental diversity. The timing of this endeavor was particularly auspicious, aligning with the sweltering summer months when soaring temperatures pose a significant threat to avian life. By providing a vital source of sustenance, these bird feeders emerged as essential lifelines, curbing the dire consequences of dehydration that often afflict our feathered friends. Kashf Shah and Anish Arif’s collaboration stands as a testament to the boundless compassion and dedication that define the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust’s global network. Their efforts transcend borders and exemplify the positive change that can be achieved when driven individuals come together for a shared cause.


This is a one-off project. Once the goal of 10,000 bird feeders has been achieved, the bird feeders will be maintained sustainably.

“Working together on this project is giving us personal satisfaction. We are grateful to the QCT Network for the networking opportunities that brought us together.”
