Pakistan Assistive Technology Foundation (PATF) is a non-register, non-prophet organization. We are providing assistive technologies training to visually impaired persons to empower and enable them to compete with their sited peers.
This project was started by Muhammad Shahbaz Hussain as a self-help project in 2010.
This project was launched with the thoughts of providing assistive technologies training to special persons especially visually impaired persons in our country. There are numerous institutions in world providing training, pod casts and tutorials all about the needs of visually impaired persons regarding assistive technology. A number of these are accessible through web but here in Pakistan we didn’t find such services. Therefore, we launched PATF to fulfill the needs of visually impaired persons in our society.
What we doing?
Currently, we are doing work in following areas
- Digital Library

We started from above steps but in futuristic point of view we want to achieve our objectives. We want to make an institute of assistive technology. Where we will arrange complete training programs. We will also launch short courses in different areas of country in this way we will able to make awareness about the use and benefits of assistive technology in upcoming era.
