The Imkaan Welfare Organisation was registered and established as an NGO in 2012. This was the year the Edhi Foundation revealed an alarming national statistical update; whilst 890 infant bodies were recovered in 2008, view this number rose to 999 in 2009 and 1,210 in 2010. It concluded that in 2011, 70 dead infants were reportedly found in the city of Karachi alone.
Unique in its intent to address and pare down the rates of both infanticide and child abandonment across Pakistan, Imkaan was founded on the tenet that each and every child not only has the right to live but to thrive.
Working alongside local stakeholders, our outreach programme monitors issues leading to infanticide and child abandonment through community-level research. At the same time, we work with potential adoptive parents in screening and preparing permanent homes for children in such need.
