Following the traditions of the Jaffer Family, AJCL espouses community-building initiatives towards sustainable development.  Our business divisions strive to attain solid growth with tangible results that permit us to give back to the community from which we gain so much.
We recognize the importance of a sound education in developing good values, morals and strong leadership for the future. In fact, emphasis on quality education has been a corner stone of the Jaffer Family’s contributions in the subcontinent even before the creation of Pakistan. 
In more recent years our support for educational causes has led to empowerment and community uplift by providing our citizens a strong platform for growth. Our efforts enable under privileged communities of Pakistan including the tribal areas to move away from radicalization and militancy thereby helping them to be the catalysts for positive change.
The principal focus of Ahmed E. H. Jaffer Foundation (a non-profit organization) is in establishing "The Hub School," an institution of excellence that invests in nurturing future leaders. The Foundation is established in memory of a family scion, a renowned statesman, who worked tirelessly with the Founder of Pakistan.  He campaigned extensively for pressing humanitarian needs of the time including refugee affairs, human rights and disarmament; and passionately promoted cultural understanding, education within the under privileged communities and sports.  In recognition of his services to the global community, he received numerous decorations from numerous foreign governments. 
Besides the ongoing community development initiatives, we actively contributed to relief and rehabilitation efforts that have helped victims of natural calamities and human tragedies to return to their normal daily activites.  
We regularly contribute to leading NGOs of Pakistan that have sustainable initiatives serving the welfare of the less fortunate. Potential partners who share our principles of humanitarian assistance are assessed and supported over an agreed period. Outcomes are regularly measured for impact.  Besides financial contributions, members of our organization volunteer their time to further the goals of these NGOs.  To this end, we work with registered charities and institutions promoting education, health, humanitarian assistance, and sports.
