Ehsaas pioneers orphanage living standards, the first in the Muslim World


LAMABAD, Apr 8 (APP): Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Social Protection and Poverty Alleviation, Dr. Sania Nishtar Thursday unveiled the new Ehsaas’ standards for private sector orphanages in a special launching event.

This is the first time not just in Pakistan but also across the Muslim World that such a historic initiative has been taken by the government for the welfare of orphans and deserving children, aimed at minimizing variation in the orphan care and to support private sector orphanages in raising their service standards nationwide.

Predicated under the policy no. 37 of Ehsaas strategy, the 25-point living standards have been tailored to needs of orphan care centers. For the first time ever, a stakeholder committee had been put in place under the umbrella of Ehsaas by Dr. Nishtar in 2019 to stipulate “Living Standards for Orphanages and Child Care Centers” in the country.

Dr. Nishtar richly lauded the expert committee for their stellar work on the formulation of Ehsaas’ orphanage standards and emphasized on the widespread implementation in the country.
