Alkhidmat Foundation Pakistan is working in all 135 districts of Pakistan through its network of committed volunteers. These volunteers find out such orphans and refer them to our Family Support Organizers (FSOs). These FSOs assess all the referred children through personal visits and other means and prepare their case and required documentation to forward them to regional offices for further verification. After receiving cases from FSOs, regional offices verify the authenticity of provided documents and check vulnerability of referred children through local team of volunteers and local community. All the forwarded cases are discussed individually and get approval for database entry where they are offered to the donors for funding.
Alkhidmat provides financial and moral support to children under 16 years of age. This financial support includes their school fee and subsistence allowance on quarterly basis. All the children are provided with educational kit that includes school bag, course books & set of notebooks, stationery, seasonal uniforms and shoes.
Alkhidmat Foundation has mechanized the child development through curricular & co-curricular activities, workshops, trainings, seminars, study circles and study tours. Orphan Family Support program schedules these activities at the beginning of year and our Family Support Organizers ensure the execution and implementation of this plan.
Alkhidmat Orphan Care Program has divided its network of 9 regions in 26 clusters for operational purposes. Each region is headed by a regional coordinator who monitors the work of FSOs working in each cluster. All regional coordinators report to the program manager at head office of Alkhidmat Foundation Pakistan at Lahore.
