Small hand pumps are an ideal source to get clean drinking water for households in remote areas of Pakistan where most of the people mainly rely on open water which is contaminated and unhygienic.
This practice results in the spread of diseases such as cholera, typhoid, and dysentery. Moreover, suction hand pumps are cheap, easy to install and maintain. Small Hand Pump is a conventional lever action hand pump.
It is designed for serving communities of up to 150 individuals. These hand pumps are fully corrosion resistant, easy to install and has excellent potential for community-based maintenance.
The purpose of Orphan Support Program is to provide support to the children who lost either one or both of their parents –and hence also lost a vital source of support– at their own homes. Currently the Orphan Care Program is successfully run in all provinces of Pakistan as well as Azad Jammu Kashmir, Gilgit Baltistan and FATA. Each cluster is administrated by an in-charge who, along with local community looks after the needs of the children.
Alkhidmat Mawakhat Program was initiated with an objective of providing interest-free microcredit to the poor and needy to enable them to start a business, earn a respectable income and improve their standard of living. Mawakhat Program is dedicated to improving the lives of the underprivileged segment of society: who are financially unstable and await opportunities to a respectful earning.
The program is based on the Islamic teachings of “Qarz-e-Hasna” which literally means to help someone in need through an interest-free loan. Mawakhat Program also provides the poor with interest-free loans so that they may acquire a livelihood, a skill to earn and fulfill their needs.
