1.          Rozgar scheme for widows and needy in Thar with Goats.

After seeing the success of Goats project in elevating poverty and giving job to jobless we started giving 4 goats to each person. 10 were given 4 goats each in July and 5 more were given in August, 11 in September, 6 in October and 6 more in November. Total 38 families supported so far. As our Pilot project undertaken 2 years back proved that they will be having 12 to 14 goats after 2 years after selling ‘male goats’ for Rs. 18,000 or so. This will eliminate poverty of most vulnerable segment of society. We are certain that in 2/3 years time they will be economically better off and will be able to sustain themselves better. We have selected Thar desert area for this project where poverty is at its peak. For this we are using the funds given to us as Zakat.

We launched ‘’Roshan Thar” scheme to provide each house with three solar light bulbs. It will have capacity to run a fan as well but the fan will be purchased by the people themselves.

1.  Rozgar scheme for widows and destitute in Thar with Goats.

After seeing the success of Goats project in elevating poverty and giving job to jobless we started giving 4 goats to each person. In that 10 were given 4 goats each in July and 5 more were given in August. As our Pilot project undertaken 2 years back proved that they will be having 10 t0 12 goats after 2 years after selling ‘’male goats’’ for Rs.  18,000 or so. This will eliminate poverty of most vulnerable segment of society. We are certain that in 2/3 years time they will be economically better off and will be able to sustain themselves better. We have selected Thar desert area for this project where poverty is at its peak. For this we are using the funds given to us as Zakat.

4.  Rozgar scheme for widows and poor in Thar with Goats.

Two year back through the benevolence of our dear brother Mr A.G. Karim, we gave 4 goats to two poor jobless young men in desert area of Thar in Pakistan. In these two years flock of one man increased to 10 goats while he sold out 2 he goats for Rs  17,200  and 3 died due to illness. In the meantime flock of other person is now 14 strong and he sold out 2 goats for Rs 13,800 and   2 died due to illness.

This experiment proved that rearing of goats in wild areas of desert is very profitable. It has made these families economically self sufficient. Their children are getting milk and they use milk to make yogurt and ‘’lassi’’ from which they make curry for the family. Previously they used to eat bread with chatni made from chilli powder and onion.  In next two years they will have a flock of more than 30 goats and will sell goats worth Rs 60,000 to Rs. 80,000 every year. This will not only give boost to their economic well being but will contribute to areas economic well being.

After seeing the success of Goats project in which we used to give one goat to a widow and many of them have 5/6 goats over a period of  3 to 4 years after selling off male offspring  at a price of Rs. 15,000, it was decided that we should eliminate poverty of most vulnerable segment of society by giving them 4 goats and make them sole owner of those.  We hope that in 2/3 years time they will be economically better off and will be able to sustain themselves better. We have selected Thar desert area for this project where poverty is at its peak. For this we are using the funds given to us as Zakat. 10 households, mostly widows were helped in July. 

These were from donation of our patrons. 2 goats on behalf of  Mrs Rubina Khawaja, one by Rubina aziz, 6 by Mr Islam ud din Omar, 6 by Mr Rehan Akhtar, 6 by Mrs Saima Mian, 6 by Mr J. siddiui, 3 by Dr Khan A Shoaib, 6 by AM, 3 by Muzaffar Mahmood Qureshi, 1 by Ahmad Faisal Imtiaz Siddiqui. 40 more goats will be given to 10  families next month, In Sha Allah.

2.  Rozgar scheme for widows and poor in Thar with Goats.

After seeing the success of Goats project in which we used to give one goat to a widow and many of them have 5/6 goats over a period of  3 to 4 years after selling off male offspring  at a price of Rs. 15,000, it was decided that we should eliminate poverty of most vulnerable segment of society by giving them 4 goats and make them sole owner of those. We hope that in 2/3 years time they will be economically better off and will be able to sustain themselves better. We have selected Thar desert area for this project where poverty is at its peak. For this we are using the funds given to us as Zakat. 10 households, mostly widows will be helped in the month of July. After that 10 families will be helped each month, In Sha Allah.

Apart from getting pure milk for the family these fetch them handsome money by selling them. We pray for Allah’s blessings on all the donors for this act of kindness.

12.                      Fruit Trees Plantation

Since KPK Govt has distributed thousands of trees in all villages, therefore we have decided not to give more trees and let the farmers look after the one already given to them. In August 2016  we distributed 200 fruit and shady trees in Thar desert area to be planted in individuals homes. In February 2016 we distribute 200 fruit trees in village Takht Parri and Mohra sangian. In addition we planted 300 trees under ‘’Green Thar scheme’’ as a pilot project in September in village Dhoonjh in Islamkot area of Thar. This have been donated by Mrs Sana Irfan in USA.

14.                     Ramzan Package for 353 widows and poor.

This year near Ramazan we plan to give about 300 widows Rs. 5,000 each to help them buy provisions for Ramazan. Last year response to our Ramzan Packages was very good. We have been able to distribute Rs 5,000 per widow initially among 185 widows in North. Later when more and more requests came for help then we distributed Rs.3000 in Rawalpindi area among 25 widows. In Islamkot area of Thar Desert we distribute 50 packages of Rs. 250,000 among 69 widows giving them Rs. 4000/3000 each. Then again 20 packages were distributed among 28 giving them Rs 4000/3000 each. In Deplo area of Thar 50 widows were given Rs. 3000 each. In Mithi area of Thar 55 widows were given Rs. 3000 each. This change in amount was made on the request of our volunteers so as to reach out to maximum poor families. Lastly 20 widows were given this package in Ghotki, Sind. Thus we have been able to distribute Rs. 1,765,000 among the widows and disabled this year. This converts to 353 Ramzan packages of Rs. 5000 each.

In addition last year we were given 250 Food packages by Mr Salman Ahmad for distribution among widows.

Also in villages Takht Pari, Pind jatla, Groli, Mohra Sangian and Mohra Loharan in Rawalpindi area. We are thankful to our benevolent brothers and sisters who made it possible for us to reach out to 412 widows this year. On a good suggestion we plan open Stitching center for the widows. In this center they will be trained to stitch cloths for women and children. We intend to give each of them a sowing machine at the end of the course. This will enable them to earn a decent living for themselves and their children. I am thankful to these brothers and sisters who made all this possible. Jazak Allah.

In this center they will be trained to stitch cloths for women and children. We intend to give each of them a sowing machine at the end of the course. This will enable them to earn a decent living for themselves and their children. I am thankful to these brothers and sisters who made all this possible. Jazak Allah.

12.                     Schools run by Trust with complete free education.

a.     Hamdard School for Slums children In Rawalpindi/Islamabad.

          We started a school for city slums children on June 10, 2013, who were collecting garbage or loitering around or working in hotels/shops or with mechanics.

a.     Hamdard School for Slums children In Rawalpindi/Islamabad.

The best suited place for this was in Pir-Widhai in Rawalpindi, poorest locality near Rawalpindi and Islamabad. New batches of 45 students have been enrolled and they seem to be interested in formal education. Education is free with free books, uniform and stationary. We are in the process to make it formal school for deprived children up to 5th class and keep no of children up to 45 at one time. This school is sponsored by a Lady Doctor in Canada.

1.    Technical training for jobless young men.

Under this scheme 23 young men have completed training ---  12 as Electricians and 11 as  plumbers in SOS Technical Institute  Rawalpindi.  They were sponsored by Admiral Iftikhar Ahmed Sirohey. Jazak Allah. A new batch of 18 jobless has started training from 30 Nov 15, whose training have been sponsored by LFCT. Jazak Allah. Through this scheme we train young people in a technical trade so that they can start their own business or get jobs or seek employment abroad. A total of 67 young boys have been given trade training to earn for themselves and their families and 23 are under training.

2.     Water Supply Schemes.

During the last 3 months 36 schemes were completed. Out of these 11 were small pumps up to depth of 50 feet in Sind. 18 are deep pumps in Thar desert varying depth from 100 to 130 feet. 7 were made in northern area in KPK where drilling is done by the people themselves and we provide them the pipes and hand pump or electric pump as they desire. In total 466 schemes have been completed so far during last 15 years.  Out of these 285 Pumps were made in Sind including Thar Desert---- having acute shortage of water. Many friends have donated schemes for Esal-e-sawab of their parents. Jazak Allah. Donors were sent photos of the schemes they sponsored. For other friends these schemes photos are available on link given above. May Allah reward all those brothers and sisters who have participated in this program.  More water supply schemes are expected to be completed next month.

3.    College education scholarship for orphan/poor students.

Two of our orphan girls from 2013 batch have secured admission in Medical college. That is great achievement for the poor girls. We are supporting them for MBBS degrees.

9 orphan and poor students were selected and given scholarship for college education for year 2015. Total no of students supported so far during the last 10 years (since 2005) has reached 146. We pay them Rs. 1000 per month for 2 years college education. The bright ones are supported further for Medical/Engg /BCS/BBA. They will be supported there as well through Qarz-e-Hasna scheme. Four more are already doing engineering and three are in Medical College.  Five of our students have obtained Engg degrees, one in MBBS, 8 BBA and 4 BCS.

Till now LFT has helped 220 widows with goats. Goats give birth to one or two goats every year. The new born starts producing in two years time. Thus these multiply very rapidly and are beneficial to the economic well being of the very poor segment of society where these can be kept and looked after. In hilly areas and desert area where there are vast opportunity to graze the goats it has proved to be very successful. Apart from getting pure milk for the family these fetch them handsome money by selling them. Till now the total no of widows who have been helped by giving them goats has reached 482.

In total 455 schemes have been completed so far during last 15 years.  Out of these 274 Pumps were made in Sind including Thar Desert---- having acute shortage of water.

Donors were sent photos of the schemes they sponsored. For other friends these schemes photos are available on link given above. May Allah reward all those brothers and sisters who have participated in this program.  More water supply schemes are expected to be completed next month.

College education scholarship for orphan/poor students.

Two of our orphan girls from 2013 batch have started Medical college education in Govt medical colleges. We are supporting them for MBBS degrees.

9 orphan and poor students were selected and given scholarship for college education for year 2015. Total no of students supported so far during the last 10 years (since 2005) has reached 146. We pay them Rs. 1000 per month for 2 years college education. The bright ones are supported further for Medical/Engg /BCS/BBA. They will be supported there as well through Qarz-e-Hasna scheme. Four more are already doing engineering and three are in Medical College.

5.     Goats for the widows.

Till now LFCT has helped 210 widows with goats. Goats give birth to one or two goats every year. The new born starts producing in two years time. Thus these multiply very rapidly and are beneficial to the economic well being of the very poor segment of society where these can be kept and looked after. In hilly areas and desert area where there are vast opportunity to graze the goats it has proved to be very successful. Apart from getting pure milk for the family these fetch them handsome money by selling them. The idea came to me when on a tour of these areas I was told by a man that he started with 2 goats 10 years back now has 25 goats and has already sold out 12 male goats during this period. There is no problem of fodder in hilly areas and in desert. The goats are sent out and these feed themselves on trees and bushes. Till now the total no of widows who have been helped by giving them goats has reached 462. We pray for Allah’s blessings on all the donors for this act of kindness. Jazak Allah.

Before that we trained 11 such young boys who are now earning hands. A total of 22 young boys have been given trade training to earn for themselves and their families. We have worked out cost of training one man. In this scheme we pay for training charges of the institute, provide accommodation and give each boy Rs. 2000 per month for food for 3 months. The cost of each man for 3 month course is Rs. 12,000. We request you to participate in this very useful scheme.

   Fruit Trees Plantation

In month of August we will distribute 600 fruit trees in villages around Takht Pari in Rawalpindi district for monsoon tree plantation campaign.

I addition we are starting ‘’Green Thar scheme’’ in which as a pilot project 200 trees will be planted in first week of august in remote village of Dhoonjh in Islamkot area.

In total 6500 fruit trees were distributed in last 3 years and 3000 wild olive trees grafted with good quality olive branches.

We have distributed fruit trees among farmers at four different places to benefit maximum people from this scheme. 1800 trees were distributed in Sataura, 550 in village Kohala, 200 in Narhotar and 400 in village Nara. In total 2950 trees were distributed this year in District Abbottabad/Hari Pur. This is sadqa-e-Jaria for the donors. Jazak Allah. This year our donors for this scheme were Mrs Saima Kamal/Mr Kamal Mian, Mr Javed ahsani, Mr Nisar A Shaikh, MrsAbida Rawra and Mr Nazim Ali.

 In year 2014 we distributed 2050 fruit trees among farmers of 16 villages in Chinjah, dubran & Kohala. We grafted 500 wild olive trees in village Chinjah. We give Apricot (Khubani), Plumb (Alu Bokhara), Peach (Aaru) Lemon, Guava (Amrud), Pomegrate (Anar) and Anjir (Fig –Japanese Fruit).

150 were given Moringa seeds in Hilly areas and Sindh last year.

In year 2013, when we started this program we had distributed 1500 fruit trees among the farmers of 9 villages. Total no of olive trees grafted so far has reached 3000.

  Goats for the widows.

In the month of July, 21 more goats were given to widows in Sind. 10 through courtesy of  LFCT and 11 more through the donations of our benevolent brothers/sisters. Till now LFCT has helped 200 widows with goats. Goats give birth to one or two goats every year. The new born starts producing in two years time. Thus these multiply very rapidly and are beneficial to the economic well being of the very poor segment of society where these can be kept and looked after. In hilly areas and desert area where there are vast opportunity to graze the goats it has proved to be very successful. Apart from getting pure milk for the family these fetch them handsome money by selling them. The idea came to me when on a tour of these areas I was told by a man that he started with 2 goats 10 years back now has 25 goats and has already sold out 12 male goats during this period. There is no problem of fodder in hilly areas and in desert. The goats are sent out and these feed themselves on trees and bushes. Till now the total no of widows who have been helped by giving them goats has reached 409. We pray for Allah’s blessings on all the donors for this act of kindness. Jazak Allah.

    Help to orphan girls for marriage.

Two more  orphan girls were helped in getting married. During 2014, we have been able to support marriages of 53 orphan girls. 

Total no of girls helped so far has reached 177.

We initially used to give Rs. 35,000 to each. With every passing day the no of applicant increases. Therefore, we now pay Rs. 15,000 mostly till funds situation improves. Even this meager amount is sought by these poor widows with lot of prayers and thanks for donors. Jazak Allah. We send details of the girls so helped to the donors with their photos.

4.     Rozgar Schemes for jobless poor with Qarz-e-Hasna.

In month of March, 5 more people were helped to establish their own business through the courtesy of Mr Talib Ruhi and Mr Javed Ahsani. Six families were helped in Pir widhai, Rawalpindi in February to establish their own business and three in Sind. Thus so far a total of 17 people have been helped in Sind and 11 in Pir Widhai, Rawalpindi to start their business. In total all of these 23 families have started paying back the money through easy installments.

These people open Karyana shops, Sabzi shop, fruit shops, milk selling point and purchased donkey carts. In Rawalpindi they started business of Kabaria, white washing of houses, Kayana store, Vehicle washing stand, Rikshaw etc. These 28 Rozgar Schemes have been sponsored by Mr Talib Ruhi, Mr Javed ahsani, Mr Asim Maqsood , Mr Khalid Nizami , Doctor Feroz Alam , Mr Muhammad Ali Asif , Doctor Najam Uz Zaman Najmi , Mr Asghar Saghir, Mr Aftab Khalili, Mrs Karmally, Mr Nasim Hyder, Mrs Sana irfan, Mr Aamir Ghauri, Mr Syed munir ahmad, Mr Dilawar Hussain, Mr karrar siddique, Mr Abdul moiz Munam, Mr Khawaja Ayaz Ahmad, Mr Wajid Tanwir, Mr abdul quddus qazi, Mr Parvaiz akhtar, Mr & Mrs Nizami, Mr sadruddin Lasi and 3 by anonymous friends. More people will be helped in next 2/3 months.

I think this is very good program and we will expand it to more and more poor and unprivileged families who can establish their own business with our small help. Training of jobless young will help the families and save them from becoming erratic in life.

    College education scholarship for orphan/poor students.

9 orphan and poor students were selected for grant of scholarship for college education for year 2015. Total no of students supported so far during the last 10 years (since 2005) has reached 146. We pay them Rs. 1000 per month for 2 years college education. The bright ones are supported further for Medical/Engg /BCS/BBA. 2 of students who did F.Sc under our Scheme have got admission in engineering Universities. They will be supported there as well through Qarz-e-Hasna scheme. Four more are already doing engineering and two are in Medical College.

 Five of our students have obtained Engg degrees,7 BBA and 3 BCS. More are pursuing their studied in Engg, software Engg, Medical and BBA/MBA programs.

5.     Establishment of Medical camps in hilly areas.

Latest Medical camp no 50 was set up in village Daccan Paisar in May. 115 patients were served free medicines in the camp. Due to ramazan and now rains we could not hold medical camp after that. A total of  4,387 patients have been given free medicines in these camps since 2012. These camps are arranged by one brother & his sister for the Esal-e-Sawab of their parents. Jazak Allah.

6.     Schools run by Trust with complete free education.

a.     Hamdard School for Slums children In Rawalpindi/Islamabad.

          We started a school for city slums children on June 10, 2013, who were collecting garbage or loitering around or working in hotels/shops or with mechanics. The best suited place for this was in Pir-Widhai in Rawalpindi, poorest locality near Rawalpindi and Islamabad. New batches of 45 students have been enrolled and they seem to be interested in formal education. Education is free with free books, uniform and stationary. We are in the process to make it formal school for deprived children up to 5th class and keep no of children up to 45 at one time. This school is sponsored by a Lady Doctor in Canada. Allah’s blessing is on her and her family for this act of kindness to deprived segment of society back home.

  Pravalli Model School for girls Kangrotar.

Girls were taken off from school after primary education due to non availability of a Middle school in this area. We operated a Middle school for girls from 2005 till 2013 with free education. Due to this school many girls have completed education up to Matric. The school has gained the foothold and is now providing education to girls from 1st  to 10th class on its own. People are now financing their children education themselves. Recently we have helped them financially again to shift the school to a better accommodation.

b.     Pravalli Model School for girls Mairlan.

This school was also established with the same purpose and we ran it for 5 years. After establishment of Govt school, in that locality, this was closed.  

c.      Pravalli Model School (English Medium) Massah Sayyedan.

This school is sponsored by Mr Osman Ahmad Dar for the last 6 years. It provides quality education to children of this village. The no of students has reached 40. The classes are from Nursery to 5th class. The education is free in all our schools. We have decided to make this school stand on its own feet from March 2015, by charging fee from student who can afford it. It will be made to sustain itself.

          We started a school for city slums children on June 10, 2013, who were collecting garbage or loitering around or working in hotels/shops or with mechanics. The best suited place for this was in Pir-Widhai in Rawalpindi, poorest locality near Rawalpindi and Islamabad. New batches of 45 students have been enrolled and they seem to be interested in formal education. Education is free with free books, uniform and stationary. We are in the process to make it formal school for deprived children up to 5th class and keep no of children up to 45 at one time. This school is sponsored by a Lady Doctor in Canada. Allah’s blessing is on her and her family for this act of kindness to deprived segment of society back home.

b.    Pravalli Model School for girls Kangrotar.

Girls were taken off from school after primary education due to non availability of a Middle school in this area. We operated a Middle school for girls from 2005 till 2013 with free education. Due to this school many girls have completed education up to Matric. The school has gained the foothold and is now providing education to girls from 1st  to 10th class on its own. People are now financing their children education themselves. Recently we have helped them financially again to shift the school to a better accommodation.

Ramzan Package for 200 widows and poor people.

          Last year we started Ramzan Package scheme was started for poor families before the start of Ramazan. In that 103 ‘’Ramzan Packages’’  of  Rs. 3500 each were distributed between widows and poor of  9 villages --  Jabri, Chinjah, Fateh Abad, Sataura, Trimman, kangrotar, Hairlan, Mairlan and Summal Tarra. 7 Packages were distributed in Rawalpindi and 40 in Shikar Pur / Larkana, Sind.

This year we intend to help 200 families with the help of our donors. You are requested to sponsor this program.

Water Supply Schemes.

During the month of April, 6 schemes were completed in Northern Areas. In total out of 366 schemes completed so far during last 15 years, 194 Pumps were completed in Sind  (out of which 28 are in Thar Desert) and the rest in KPK province.  Details of the schemes completed in March are:-

361.  Hand Pump village garhico district  Ghotki, Sind donated by Mr Razma Ali shan.

362.  H.Pump in village Umerbad, district  Ghotki, sind. Donated by Veginia Ali Shan.

363.  Hand Pump in Rawat Baluch, district Ghotki,Sind. Donated by Haniph Ali Shan

364.  Hand Pump in village Dabi, Mithi – Tharparkar. Donated by LFCT.

365.  Pump in village Okarro, Mithi – Tharparkar. Donated by LFCT.

366.  Pump in village Okarro, Mithi – Tharparkar. Donated by LFCT.

Donors were sent photos of the schemes they sponsored. For other friends these schemes photos are available on link given above. Total water supply schemes completed in the last 15 years are 366.  May Allah reward all those brothers and sisters who have participated in this program. Few more water supply schemes are expected to be completed next month.

Goats for the widows.

In the month of April, 5 goats were given to widows in Ghotki, Sind through courtesy of Mr. Mian Kamal/  Mrs.Saima Mian. In addition 10 more goats were distributed in Thar desert area through courtesy of  LFCT. Till now LFCT has helped 152 widows with goats. Goats give birth to one or two goats every year. The new born starts producing in two years time. Thus these multiply very rapidly and are beneficial to the economic well being of the very poor segment of society where these can be kept and looked after. In hilly areas and desert area where there are vast opportunity to graze the goats it has proved to be very successful. Apart from getting pure milk for the family these fetch them handsome money by selling them. The idea came to me when on a tour of these areas I was told by a man that he started with 2 goats 10 years back now has 25 goats and has already sold out 12 male goats during this period. There is no problem of fodder in hilly areas and in desert. The goats are sent out and these feed themselves on trees and bushes.

Till now the total no of widows who have been helped by giving them goats has reached 376. We pray for Allah’s blessings on all the donors for this act of kindness.

Jazak Allah.

Help to orphan girls for marriage.

In month of April, 5 more orphan/ destitute were helped in getting married. During year 2014, we have been able to support marriages of 47 orphan girls. 

Total no of girls helped so far has reached 171.

We initially used to give Rs. 35,000 to each. With every passing day the no of applicant increases. Therefore, we now pay Rs. 15,000 mostly till funds situation improves. Even this meager amount is sought by these poor widows with lot of prayers and thanks for donors. Jazak Allah. We send details of the girls so helped to the donors with their photos.

Rozgar Schemes for jobless poor with Qarz-e-Hasna.

In month of March, 5 more people were helped to establish their own business through the courtesy of Mr Talib Ruhi and Mr Javed Ahsani. Six families were helped in Pir widhai, Rawalpindi in February to establish their own business and three in Sind. Thus so far a total of 17 people have been helped in Sind and 11 in Pir Widhai, Rawalpindi to start their business. In total all of these 23 families have started paying back the money through easy installments.

These people open Karyana shops, Sabzi shop, fruit shops, milk selling point and purchased donkey carts. In Rawalpindi they started business of Kabaria, white washing of houses, Kayana store, Vehicle washing stand, Rikshaw etc. These 28 Rozgar Schemes have been sponsored by Mr Talib Ruhi, Mr Javed ahsani, Mr Asim Maqsood , Mr Khalid Nizami , Doctor Feroz Alam , Mr Muhammad Ali Asif , Doctor Najam Uz Zaman Najmi , Mr Asghar Saghir, Mr Aftab Khalili, Mrs Karmally, Mr Nasim Hyder, Mrs Sana irfan, Mr Aamir Ghauri, Mr Syed munir ahmad, Mr Dilawar Hussain, Mr karrar siddique, Mr Abdul moiz Munam, Mr Khawaja Ayaz Ahmad, Mr Wajid Tanwir, Mr abdul quddus qazi, Mr Parvaiz akhtar, Mr & Mrs Nizami, Mr sadruddin Lasi and 3 by anonymous friends. More people will be helped in next 2/3 months.

I think this is very good program and we will expand it to more and more poor and unprivileged families who can establish their own business with our small help. Training of jobless young will help the families and save them from becoming erratic in life.

Establishment of Medical camps in hilly areas.

Latest Medical camp no 49 was set up in village Sataura in April. 95 patients were served free medicines in the camp.
