Our Rozgar project has collectively helped over 896 individuals in various districts of Pakistan through 116 resources of employment.
Through our Rozgar Project, we have implemented the provision of rickshaws, delivery motorbikes and the establishment of small businesses. Our rickshaw distribution is aimed towards those who are struggling to find employment and a total of 62 rickshaws have been distributed. Moreover, our small business opportunity gives people a chance to own their own means of employment.
Similar to the small business venture, our Himmat Karo Aage Baro enterprise is also a newer initiative by Mufti Abdul Wahab. This campaign sees the supply of delivery motorbikes to the young demographic of Pakistan. This campaign has been immensely popular since its inception and a total of 50 motorbikes have been given. All of these resources were personally provided by Mufti Abdul Wahab himself alongside other trustees and volunteers.
We have worked in multiple areas including:
Surjani Town, Khuda ki Basti, Mangopir, Pakhtunabad, Jamhoria colony, Burmi colony and others.
BREAKING THE CHAINS OF POVERTY
Poverty statistics of Pakistan are dismal. As a developing country with limited financial resources 24% of Pakistani citizens live below the poverty line. Providing employment opportunities for all is the single most effective means of tackling poverty and social exclusion. Employment enables individuals to improve their living standards; it also makes constructive use of human resources.
IMPACT OF YOUR DONATION
Providing employment opportunities for all is the single most effective means of tackling poverty and social exclusion. Employment enables individuals to improve their living standards; it also makes constructive use of human resources. The aim of livelihood projects is to provide families with sustainable incomes, which will improve their lives in the long term. This in turn allows for children to receive a better education, which in turn helps them find work to support themselves, helping improve the economic activity of their communities and create more jobs.
“If it hadn’t been for UCI stepping up and providing me with a self-employment facility, I am certain that my family and I would not have been able to survive. After I had my arm amputated due to the tragic accident on Pakistan's Independence Day, UCI brought me back into the light from the depression that I had lapsed into.
Since I also take care of my elderly mother and my brother who has been diagnosed with a mental illness, it had been difficult for me to take care of them before UCI gave me a rickshaw. We’re all extremely grateful since I’m now able to better-handle our family needs and expenses. I make sufficient income through driving the rickshaw. My only wish was to make sure that my family had enough means to live stable lives. After my accident, I thought I would be rendered helpless without my arm and the last thing I wanted was to become dependent on my family when I was the one who was responsible for them, but thanks to UCI I was able to move on from this dark past and into the light.”
