Main Livelihood / Income sources of 10 slum areas of 5 in Lahore & 5 in Hyderabad
10 slum dweller areas near Lahore & Hyderabad belong to a lower labor class with a very low income. They are laborers; sweepers, gardeners, security guards and factory workers. Prior to the factory area nearby, most of them don't find work on regular daily basis.50% of their daily wage is utilized to buy firewood’s and cow-dung cakes used to cook their food as the village still lacks sui gas. Living in the centre of government and private schools their children are deprived of quality education just because of their poor financial condition. Government schools are of very poor condition and private schools are out of their pocket power.
Due to bad sanitation and NO means of safe drinking water villagers of Guloo Kot are more at risk for different diseases. No proper dispensary is found in the village to cater the needs of poor sick villagers in case of emergency they have to rush to General Hospital Lahore that’s the only nearby hospital and mostly patient dies during the process of reaching the hospital.
Lack of awareness:
People of this village lack awareness on all sectors whether its
Safe drinking water
Health & Hygiene
Women rights etc
