On December 24th, 2020, HF has started the laying of terracotta cobbles at the Denso Hall Rahguzar - the first segment of the Red Trail that will connect the historic Denso Hall with Kharadar Chowk and the Custom House.
The radial pavement design centralizes around the 12” dia natural ceramic plaques carrying heritage images that are specially fabricated to dot the trail with reminders of Karachi’s glorious past.
The tiles are hand-made in Makli by HF’s Barefoot Entrepreneur women.

By December 1st, 2020, Imtiaz Naqvi Foundation successfully built and funded 3 LOG Shelters in Mirpur Khas, using our Youtube tutorials, online resources (and guidance from our project manager Mr. Naheem Shah).
Mirpur Khas is greatly affected by reoccurring flooding, resulting in loss of life and damage to personal properties, which leaves the villagers in a vulnerable state. On top of that, the cost of reconstruction of a house is unbearable for the affected ones.
LariOcta Green (LOG) has been designed as a flood-proof shelter. Using the quick assembly of prefab panels designed by the Heritage Foundation of Pakistan, Imtiaz Naqvi Foundation has managed to make each unit for Rs. 20,000.
