Karachi United is a football development organization and runs several initiatives to promote football and personal development among young players in low socio-economic areas.

Karachi United offers football training and life skills sessions at its 12 community centers, where players aged 4-20 are coached in football tactics and skills. The monthly visits to community centers allow the team to assess the players' performance levels, gather valuable feedback, and gather crucial data for future enhancements and innovative initiatives. KU also participates in football tournaments and friendly competitions, promoting teamwork, leadership qualities, and diversity among these players. In addition to promoting football, Some of the initiatives KU took in the past four months were:

  • Football Sessions:
