The Seplaa Story

‘Seplaa’ means ’empowerment’ and ‘sustainability’.

Seplaa’s story begins in 2004 when ‘it was launched as the community club for the students of the Metropolitan University of Law & Social Sciences (MULSS). Both MULSS and Seplaa were initiated by Dr. Ammara Farooq Malik then a 27 year old passionate mother, lawyer and one third business partner in the educational venture, in Lahore.     

Since 2004, Seplaa (Seeds of Education, Policy, Legal Awareness & Advocacy) has been running numerous empowerment projects creating winning solutions and thriving on long term impact investments to benefit people and the planet.

2016 saw the launch of the Seplaa Enterprises, a social enterprise offering trainings, workshops and business incubation consultancy services, with a sustainable business model in Lahore, Pakistan.

Seplaa Enterprises also promotes activities for youth and women through the Seplaa Young Leaders’ Club International and the Seplaa Women Hub.  

To create an impact in the community, Seplaa also offers partner solutions in the digital space for maximum outreach and greater impact through the SEPLAA Foundation in Pakistan.

In 2022 the Seplaa Founder completed her doctorate and revamped Seplaa to scale the brand globally. 

Together with the support that she got  for the Canadian business readiness from the Vancouver based accelerator, Dr. Malik,  collected, streamlined and updated the Seplaa projects and services to form the startup Seplaa Consultants Canada Inc.

In 2024, we are geared towards the sustainable growth of our clients, partners and projects globally through our Canada operations under Seplaa Canada and Seplaa Group Inc.
