Development Projects

Now a days many projects like sewerage, gas, construction of roads e.t.c are under process but due to paradox in the policies of the govt departments, the whole system is in a state of debacle. No proper law and order is present, traffic sargents standing on busy roads take bribes openly, they enjoy tea with jalabian(a type of sweet)while teenagers perforM dangerous stunts like onewheeling with silencers off,carts run parallel to cars n trucks. nazim and other higher officials are busy in embezzlement, trying their level best to push the area towardsdebacle.

Kawish Welfare Trust Projects

Kawish Welfare Trust has successfully established and running several schools under the name of IQRA PROJECT in District Bahawalnagar. Students are taken in for a period of three years, during which they are provided free education under a structured and rigorous plan. Further support is made available in the form of free books, stationary and uniforms. After the completion of the period of three years the students appear in the board level exams. Special care is taken in the case of Orphans and they are also supported by a monthly stipend. Schools which complete tenure of 03 years, appear in the primary board examination and considered as passed out. These passed out schools are replaced with a new school. Alhamdulillah, IQRA Schools have 100% results so far in primary board examination.

Kawish Welfare Trust has expanded its Education Project beyond the provision of primary education with the name of IQRA PLUS MIDDLE SCHOOL. Students are being taught courses upto Class 8th along with Computer Basic Education, so that they become proficient in computer usage and data entry. In this way the students will be able to get jobs based on their skills and thus,they will be able to stand on their own feet.

Kawish Welfare Trust started its course of actions in the medical field by establishing a dispensary twenty kilometers away from the Bahawalnagar city in the Budhanwala Settlement, which is eight kilometers of the main highway. Over time it has been upgraded to an extended dispensary or basic level hospital. Till date it has treated twenty six thousand plus patients. Along with this multiple eye camp have been held on the site during which over three hundred surgeries were conducted for lens transplant and three times as many patients were treated in OPD. All of these services are provided at subsidized rates to the patients. Since 1st January 2006, keeping in mind the need of local women Kawish Welfare Trust has established the Gynae Section in the hospital. For this purpose arrangements have been made with the Bahawalnagar CMH in case of any complication in delivery. To assist in this an ambulance has also been recently procured. At present expansion of the hospital is under progress and efforts are being made to acquire further equipment and facilities for the hospital. In November, 2007 an operation theater for Eye Surgeries with all necessary equipment has been established to conduct eye surgeries on the last Sunday of every month.
