It’s a common perception that the charity organizations do not deliver what they promise, but things have changed now so the thoughts. Thanks to a large number of humanitarian workers that are providing various medical and educational facilities to the underprivileged community members. Besides from local welfare bodies and philanthropists, many international charity firms have also entered Pakistan and providing the less fortunate with the right kind of facilities according to the need and requirements. If we keep track of the following points, we may be able to change the face of Pakistan in the coming years.
If we take a look at the 2016 statistics and the data from “Pakistan Social and Living Standards Measurement” (PSLM), we would come to know that the literacy rate of Pakistan is 58%. The government was supposed to bring the ratio to at least 88% but unfortunately, nothing of the sort have yet been achieved. The decision makers have made some amendments into their annual education quota and a large number of free scholarships are under consideration.
Is There a Definite Solution to Reduce Poverty?
No matter where we go across the globe, poverty can be found everywhere. To alleviate the suffering of the most in need we must maintain a system that accommodates the underprivileged community members. There is no definite solution though. Poverty can never be eradicated even if you’re a first world country. Keeping that in mind, many international NGOs in Pakistan are working tirelessly to facilitate the less fortunate.
Charity Organizations Working for Communal Issues
All NGOs in Pakistan have set their boundaries and target segments. They know exactly where to go and how to reach their chosen segments. For example, the Aurat foundation is mainly focused on the women empowerment and their rights. The Bilqees Sarwar Foundation on the other hand, aims to provide the public health and education support on local and global grounds.
Changing the Face of Pakistan
Pakistan is ranked 149th out of 179 countries on the Maternal Mortality Ratio Index. Keeping that in mind, many new projects have been laid down to improve the healthcare sector. More than 50 charity hospitals are running actively across Punjab. As far as the education sector is concerned, the standards of government schools have been improved and more than 150 free schools are currently running actively within Punjab. If the charity organizations across Pakistan keep working with the same level of dedication, the positive results are not hard to achieve.
