About Us

Empowering Women Through Education and Health

Riaz Foundation is a Swedish non-profit organization founded in 2017 by Riaz Uddin. We are dedicated to dismantling the barriers that prevent women and girls in underprivileged communities from reaching their full potential. We achieve this by providing them with access to quality education and essential health resources, specifically focusing on menstrual hygiene products and education.

These fundamental rights are the foundation for a brighter future, not just for women, but for their families and communities as a whole. Education empowers women to make informed decisions about their lives, health, and future careers. It equips them with the skills and knowledge to navigate challenges, advocate for themselves, and become agents of change within their communities. Access to menstrual hygiene products and education is a matter of dignity and health. It allows women and girls to manage their menstrual cycles with confidence and participate fully in all aspects of life, including education and work.

A Message From Founder

I come from an underprivileged area, where people are living under the minimum standard that our modern life promises. I am sure there are lots of such areas in my country and all around the world. I have started little, with the people of my own area but the dream is big. As I have just started, it would really be far fetched to try and target everyone even in my own country. So I have started with a manageable population.

With my foundation, I want to significantly contribute to the unprivileged people who are still deprived of the very basic needs to live and flourish as human beings. This pilot project is most important for me and my foundation. This will help me understand the operations that I need to take in order to make a real contribution to those lives that I really care about. The initial goal of this foundation is to ensure every child has access to education and menstrual hygiene for women. It is hard to believe that people still are fighting to get access to those important things. I have selected those two as part of the primary initiatives after putting lots of thoughts behind it.
