Fields of Activities (Updated October 2018):

Following are the fields in which Pravalli Welfare trust is working in poor rural hilly areas for the betterment of the masses.


1) Clean Drinking Water :
This sector requires lot of work to be done. This is major sector of our activity. In the hilly area girls/women have to travel on the hills for many Kms to fetch a pitcher of water. In doing this they spend 20 % of their time and 70 % of there energy. Till Now, we have completed 1286 water supply schemes; Out of these 771 schemes were given in Sindh including 236 in Thar Desert area - having acute shortage of water. Some Water Supply Schemes are donated by donors for the Esal-e-Sawab of their parents and dear ones.

2) Financial help to widows --- Goats for Widows
The goats give birth to two to three kids 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 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. 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 time to meet his other expenses. We have given goats to 655 widows till now. Now we give 4 goats to each family under Microfinance scheme. In eturn they will give us 4 child goats to be given to next widows/ poor families. Till now 74 families have been helped under this program.

3) Wedding of orphan girls
Marriages of daughters for financially hard pressed poor widow is a great burden. Initially we started this program both for orphan and poor. But it is very difficult to distinguish who is poor when all start claiming their right for donation. Therefore we have restricted it to orphans only. We give Rs. 20,000 to each orphan girl. Till now 435 Girls have been helped under this program. It is paltry amount when we see only photography session of ‘’Haves’’ costs about Rs. 100,000.

4) House construction for poor/ widows.
In hilly areas roof of houses of poor people are made of wooden planks and mud on top of them. After few years wood gets weak and due to weight of earth it collapses. Some of poor and widows cannot make new roof and get displaced. Through courtesy of friends we are helping in getting these fallen houses with tin roof. 15 families have been helped so far.

5) Training of young people in technical trade.
There are hundreds of young boys in villages without job. We have started their training program in a technical trade so that they can earn their livelihood. The social fiber of the rural areas has deteriorated to great extent. Violence and petty crimes/thefts have become norm in these areas. This needs to be addressed. Total of 235 have been trained in the trades of AC & Fridge mechanics, Plumbers, Electricians, Motor Cycle Mechanics, Auto electricians and in computer.

6) Medical camp.
Medical camp in remote hilly areas have been started that provide medical help and free medicines to the poor people who cannot afford to go to hospital due to financial constraints. 88 Camps are held till now in which 8,238 patients were given free medicines since 2012.

7) Education :

a) Adopt a poor child:
The standard of education in the rural areas has crossed the limit of bad and is worst possible due to apathy of Govt, parents and teachers. To help poor talented children we have started Rs. 250 per month scholarship to poor talented student. We hope to enroll about 200 children under this program, costing Rs. 3,000 per year per child.

b. 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. 50 students have been enrolled and they seem to be interested in formal education. Education is free with free books and stationary.

8) Support to needy students for college education:
Most of the bright students drop out after Matric due to financial constraints. We give financial assistance to needy students who secure 60 percent marks in Matric exam and pass our test. For this purpose the donor, student and college principal will be made to communicate with each other. In this way the donors will be in touch with the students and will keep watch on their progress. 178 students have been supported till now by our friends/donors for college education. If they get admission in Govt. Medical or Engineering colleges then they are supported there as well. Out of these students supported by us 6 completed Engineering, two completed MBBS and 2 are in medical college 12 more are pursuing degree course in BBA, BCS and one has done Master in agriculture.

9) Fruit trees distribution/Plantation.
We started this Fruit trees plantation program in 2013 and a total 9710 fruit trees were distributed in this period and 3000 wild olive trees grafted with good quality olive branches. We have distributed fruit trees among farmers in villages. In addition we planted 300 trees under ‘’Green Thar scheme’’ as a pilot project in September in village Dhoonjh in Islamkot area of Thar. In addition 1,800 trees were planted in Sind in year 2018.

10 ) Ramzan Package
In Ramazan, We give Rs. 5000 to 600 widows. This no is increasing every year. We started with 200 initially. Now our program covers about 26 villages of district Abbottabad, 6 villages of district Hari Pur and we reach out to about 300 families in Thar and other parts of Sind.

11 ) Women Sewing Centers
We are running three Sewing centers, two in Rawalpindi and one in village Taror, Seer Sharqi Abbottabad in hily area. 24 women/ girls are under training in our three centers. Till now 77 have completed training.

12 ) Roshan Thar Scheme
Total no houses given Solar Electricity has reached 51. There are wide stretches where there is no electricity and no roads in Thar. We do not expect it to be electrified for the next 20 years seeing the availability of electricity in the country and performance of the successive Govts in Sind. 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. We started this program by providing this facility to widows and very poor households.

13 ) Rozgar Scheme for jobless with qarz-e-Hasna.
One more person was given loan to start business in Musa Khel, Dera Ghazi Khan. 32 people were given interest free loans. Out of these 20 are in Sind and 12 in Rawalpindi & Abbottabad districts. They have started their own business. The recovery from some has become slow; we are perusing them to pay back the remaining amount early.
