Pakistan’s government is planning to distribute goats, cows, rickshaws, carts, and shops for free to the poor to fight poverty.

The initiative has been taken under the Ehsaas programme, a government project to alleviate poverty in Pakistan.

Dr Sania Nishtar, the head of the BISP and the prime minister’s special assistant on social protection and poverty alleviation, made the announcement in Islamabad on Tuesday.

She said the government will distribute assets to the poor for free.

Prime Minister Imran Khan will launch the Ehsaas Asset Scheme on February 21 in Punjab.

The first phase of the programme will cover 375 of the country’s underdeveloped union councils. Nishtar said it will benefit around 175,000 families.

She said Rs15 billion will be distributed in 23 districts. She explained that Rs60,000 worth of assets will be provided per family. Around 60% of women and 30% of youth will benefit from this asset programme, she said, adding that it will also offer them training.

People will be selected on the basis of the Ehsaas programme’s poverty survey. The project includes 10 districts from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, three from Punjab, seven from Sindh and three from Balochistan.

Nishtar said the idea is to help the poorest of the poor and provide employment opportunities to the unemployed.

    Now the new earnings going to start in the name of poor. The Firing will start through the shoulders of poor community and the benefits will gain the clever peoples through the programme happend in the past in each programme launch for the poor but benefited by the non deserving. I do not know that Mr.Imran Khan the Prime Minister launched a Shelter in the holy family hospital, Rawalpindi. The old structure (shelter) already existed from the long time ago in the Holy Family Hospital in front of Administrative block just aside with mosque in front of dangue patient block, made by some welfare organisation, That was dis-mental and the same structure re-fixed by the responsible authority in the back side of garden of the hospital. It Is no expense occurred and the floor expense might be paid while it is also double expense because the floor also was there but in old location. the was no need to shift that and that is why the floor making expense paid. And later on That is inaugurated in the name of Imran Kahn shelter home for the needy persons. It is understandable if the new and where that is not existed may be executed. but what is the fun that the existing structure dismental & the same re build with little cost but also with out reason the floor dismentling and reconstructing (waste of money) was made. So if the amount have been kept aside for the poor, that will not benefiting to the poors that will mostly swallow by the oganizer’s. Hoping the same In-sha-Allah. So we in society have many many black sheeps So first of all do not start the projects through Pakistani. Need to hire some other than Pakistani administrative and than might be some benefits of your programme may be reach to the right deserving peoples.
