We have setup a school in an underprivileged area of Orangi Town, where children can get high quality education in the fees Rs.400-500 or free of cost for the people who can’t afford to pay the fees. In this school, children are being provided with the contemporary educationa techniques which can make them stand together with any other student. We are also sponsoring children of under privileged area, who couldn’t afford this luxury.
Our volunteers organize a speaker session in different schools and rural area, where awareness are required. Under this project, the group members of our team FTP provide free counseling to the children and youth of the slum areas where the elders of the family have put their children on work while being home themselves. These children are either not allowed to study at all and if some of them actually do, they cannot study further after matric. Due to this counseling program, people with such mindsets are now being improved and their children can now get their rights too.
We took the responsibility to provide complete ration to 100 –150 Families of widows, poor old people every month of the year by the help of our donors. The Ration Bag is sufficient for a month for a family consisting of 6 to 8 persons.
Medical camps provide free diagnosis and treatments of the poor population who can hardly afford two times meal and lacks the ability to pay for healthcare services in underprivileged areas.

The aim of this micro project is to create awareness towards the people about environment and encour age them to plant trees. We have taken up a massive tree plantation program under the aegis of local community support who promised to look after the plants, newly planted.
Later on, we thought why stop ate providing food on a weekly basis when we can do more? Thus, ASAN RIZQ came into fruition, is it mainly a daily basis setup of simple Daal Chawal meal for PKR 10/- Each plate although our organization does not earn much in this setup but we have set the plate cost so low so that everyone can eat there and won’t feel ashamed while eating. However, if they cannot afford they can still eat free of cost.approximately 100 individuals can be fed easily.
Tharparkar is the most impoverished district of Sindh Pakistan, with the highest infant and children mortality rate in the country that has been marked by drought, famine and malnutrition.Thar desert where sweltering temperatures mean surviving the day is difficult for the development of these areas. we build new tube wells as well as redevelop those that dried up years ago, plant Hand pumps, distribute rashan bags andd flour.
VOCATIONAL TRAINING CENTRE
We have always pondered over the idea that instead of providing food and other basic necessities, why don’t we ask them to earn their own bread? There are people who wants to live their own life with their own earning and we always appreciate such ideas by supporting them in starting a small business according to their area of interest.
Hunar Ghar is our under construction program.It is a common thing to observe that women are unable to complete their studies therefore, do not get proper jobs, which leads to their deteriorating financial condition, they are unable to support their families. Keeping this dilemma in mind, we started a program of vocational training program for widows and for those women and girls who want to support their family in bad times. We are helping them in learning skills so that they could do things on their own and earn their bread. With the vocational training, women can get economically empowered even when they do not have any proper job. They can start their business, they can make and sell things from home, they can get jobs in manufacturing units etc. We encourage under privileged women to start giving vocational training so that they could earn for their family and by this, they will be proud of themselves rather than feel bad on receiving funds from others.Our Vocational Training centre is almost complete just plaster on walls are felt for that we are collecting funds.
