Poverty is one of the least discussed issues in Pakistan. While many debates center around different economic issues, poverty is mostly left out. It is quite odd that local discourse on such a serious issue is very elusive in our country.

A more reasonable poverty line can be the international poverty line of $2 per day. As per this poverty line, a whopping 60% of Pakistanis are poor.

According to the Economic Survey, Pakistan’s poverty headcount has registered a prominent decline in the last decade or so at both the regional and national levels.

The MPI findings show more than 60% of Pakistan’s population does not have access to cooking fuel, approximately, 49% do not complete schooling, almost four out of every 10 people (39%) do not have any assets and over 38% of the population lives in a one-room shelter. About one-third population does not have access to health facilities.

NUR Foundation with Fatima Memorial Hospital took the initiative of not only educating these children, but also providing them with clothes. The numbers are increasing day by day but we still make it a point to distribute as many as we can among the needy children as well as adults. Along with providing education to them, it is very important to nurture and groom them.

As the holy month of Ramadan approaches, we look forward to your support in letting us provide these children with clothes for EID which they can also use in the future. These children are deprived of numerous things and the least we can do is provide them with clothes.

We have to continue this effort and support the poor as much as we can and in order to achieve our goals, we need your support.

Thank you so much!

According to the latest available official statistics, almost 30% of Pakistanis were living below poverty line of Rs3,030 per adult per month in 2013. This translates to roughly 59 million in absolute terms.

 

A more reasonable poverty line can be the international poverty line of $2 per day. As per this poverty line, a whopping 60% of Pakistanis are poor.

 

The Economic Survey 2018 revealed Pakistan’s percentage of people living below the poverty line has fallen to 24.3 percent in 2015-16 from 50.4 percent in 2005-06.

 

According to the Economic Survey, Pakistan’s poverty headcount has registered a prominent decline in the last decade or so at both the regional and national levels.

The fall in poverty shows more prominence in urban areas than rural areas, reported the Economic Survey 2018.

 

Ministry of Planning Development and Reforms on Wednesday informed the Senate that about 29.5 per cent of the country’s population is living below the poverty line. 

 

The MPI findings show more than 60% of Pakistan’s population does not have access to cooking fuel, approximately, 49% do not complete schooling, almost four out of every 10 people (39%) do not have any assets and over 38% of the population lives in a one-room shelter. About one-third population does not have access to health facilities.

Ministry of Planning Development and Reforms on Wednesday informed the Senate that about 29.5 per cent of the country’s population is living below the poverty line. 

A food poverty line is calculated by taking the average spending on food of households, based on minimum threshold of 2,350 level of calorie intake and calculates expenditure on non-food items like shelter, clothing, education and health, to obtain a CBN poverty line, which can be regularly updated for inflation, using the Consumer Price Index (CPI) to track poverty over time. 

The more alarming indicator is the intensity of poverty, as each poor person lacks access to half of the indicators selected for measuring poverty. The MPI findings show more than 60% of Pakistan’s population does not have access to cooking fuel, approximately, 49% do not complete schooling, almost four out of every 10 people (39%) do not have any assets and over 38% of the population lives in a one-room shelter. About one-third population does not have access to health facilities.

The numbers are increasing day by day but we still make it a point to distribute as many as we can among the needy children. Along with providing education to them, it is very important to nurture and groom them.

During this winter season, we require your support in providing these children with clothing in order to keep them warm. Since they lack basic facilities, it is an obligation for us to support them.

Lets continue the support and make their lives better.

 

Keep your support coming and we hope it continues to grow in future.

 

Thank you so much!

 

The report unveiled by Government of Pakistan details the country’s official Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI), which shows a sharp decline with national poverty rates falling from 55 % to 39% from 2004 to 2016.

 

Rather than income and wealth alone, the MPI uses broader measures to determine poverty based on access to healthcare, education and the overall standard of living, thus giving a more detailed understanding of poverty.

 

The report states 38.8% of Pakistan’s population lives in poverty. A majority of the rural population (54.6%) lives in acute poverty while this ratio is only 9.4% in urban areas, emphasizing the need to make rural-centric economic policies.

 

The more alarming indicator is the intensity of poverty, as each poor person lacks access to half of the indicators selected for measuring poverty. The MPI findings show 60.6% of Pakistan’s population does not have access to cooking fuel, 48.5% do not complete schooling, almost four out of every 10 people (39%) do not have any assets and over 38% of the population lives in a one-room shelter. About one-third population does not have access to health facilities.

 

Because of which, there is a wide number of young souls who cannot afford a meal or clothes. However, their determination and courage makes our heart swell with pride. We take initiative of bringing them to schools and providing them education with food and clothes.

 

Every season, NUR Foundation donates clothes to the underprivileged children bringing smiles and spreading love. The numbers are increasing day by day but we still make it a point to distribute as many as we can among the needy children. Along with providing education to them, it is very important to nurture and groom them. Nothing could be a better experience than the smile that is seen on those innocent faces which has to be the real reward. As the winter is approaching, we require your support in providing these children with clothing in order to keep them warm. Since they lack basic facilities, it is an obligation for us to support them by providing basic education and necessities for them to grow. These children are the future of Pakistan and we need to ensure they are provided with proper clothing especially when the winter is round the corner.

 

With your continued and generous support, we can make their lives better.

 

Keep your support coming and we hope it continues to grow in future.

 

Thank you so much!

 

According to a report, nearly 39 percent of Pakistanis live in multidimensional poverty, with the highest rates of poverty in FATA and Balochistan. Pakistan’s MPI has shown a decline, with national poverty rates falling from 55% to 39% from 2004 to 2015. However, progress across different regions of Pakistan is uneven. Poverty in urban areas is 9.3 percent as compared to 54.6 percent in rural areas. Disparities also exist across provinces.

As a result of which, there are numerous young souls with their bright eyes and contagious smiles who cannot afford a meal or clothes. However, their determination and courage makes our heart swell with pride. We take initiative of bringing them to schools and providing them education with food and clothes.

Every season, NUR Foundation donates clothes to the underprivileged children bringing smiles and spreading love. The numbers are increasing day by day but we still make it a point to distribute as many as we can among these needy children who are the future of Pakistan. Along with providing education to them, it is very important to nurture and groom them. Above all, spread more love and happiness. Nothing could be a better experience than the smile that is seen on those innocent faces which has to be the real reward.

These children also deserve our love and attention. They are not less than anyone of us and are future of this country. Therefore, it is our duty to provide them with basic necessities which they are deprived of. 

With your continued and generous support, we can make their lives better.

Keep your support coming and we hope it continues to grow in future.

Thank you so much!
