PCPF is running the educational projects in the different slum areas where the need is much appreciated.
Food and Agriculture Development Program:
Although Pakistan is basically agricultural country and 80% people are currently working, occupied in the agriculture field. There are many people who are working in the field of agriculture for them but it is very difficult for them keep both ends meet. After a team-survey of PCPF we initially started this program to provide the food for deserving community.
Agriculture is an integral part of Culture as a whole!
Agriculture is feeding a number of industries likes textile mills, flour mills, sugar mills, oil mills and cigarette Factories, i.e. these industries are based on agricultural produce of cotton, wheat, sugarcane, beans, and tobacco, respectively. Pakistan is already concentrating on good quality and higher agricultural production of these cash crops. We still need to do a lot in this sector. Under food and agricultural development program; PCPF finds the land and cultivates it with different cash crops with the help of well established/rich families and devoted youth. Through this program PCPF is also contributing to provide jobs to the jobless young people. PCPF provides food to the deserving /poor families within its capacity.
The Foundation is running food supply projects in three villages of District Sialkot; which are called PCPF shelter houses. These slum areas are suffering from a high ratio of Poor families.
Health care Program:
Pakistan is one of those countries where a large number of communities including minorities are deprived of most of the basic needs such as proper food, clothing and shelter. This directly affects the health of these communities and gives rise to health care problems. One of our basic aims is that we arrange for the medical facility to the deserving and the poor who cannot afford the expenses for their medical treatment.
PCPF provides free medicines and treatment to the poor and needy people at its health care clinics in the slum areas of wahcantt, Faisalabad and Islamabad.
For sustainability PCPF have the two more clinics from where we charge nominal fees from the people who can pay; and use this amount for the needy and deserving people. PCPF is running the three medical clinics, mentioned earlier, on the non-profit base.
We also organize free medical camps in different urban and rural areas where the medical facility is not available and the community is an immediate need of such facility. The medical graduates and volunteer staff are participating enthusiastically in these medical camps.
Women Development Program:
Pakistan Christian Peace Foundation has 410 general members, where registered number of women is 175. PCPF provides a good opportunity for these registered females to perform more effective role for the different problems of the women and their gradual social development throughout the whole community. We help socially, morally and economically the widows, divorcees, and wives of the disabled persons, we are also arranging for these women's vocational training in different institutes of the country.
We also have started the vocational institute for the Christian women and young girls for making them skilled for the betterment of their future.
By the grace of the God we have Four vocational centers, in different rural areas and two are working in the urban areas of Punjab province.
From these projects PCPF is able to give the employment to the unemployed young women/girls, so that they can work, learn and earn to supplement the income of their family.
