The #EndPovertyinPakistan movement is a call to action aimed at reducing poverty levels in Pakistan. Poverty is a major issue in Pakistan, with millions of people living below the poverty line. There are 44 million people stuck in generational poverty.
Generational poverty results from persistent cycles of disadvantage rooted in inadequate nutrition and limited access to quality education. Lack of nutrition leads to stunted growth and underdevelopment. Limited education and stunted growth hinder competitiveness against those with a standard upbringing. Therefore, they again end up being poor, and this cycle of disadvantage gets repeated generation after generation. Breaking the cycle requires supporting one generation, hindered by the absence of a systematic support system.
The Impact Meter, utilizing technology, systematically addresses poverty in Pakistan by offering scale, trust, visibility, equitability, and impact measurement.
On this platform, families can be adopted for basic grocery and education in a transparent, personalized, and visible fashion. Families can also be supported through donations to NGOs. Adopting a model inspired by the Prophet (S.A.W.S), breaking generational poverty involves blessed families supporting underprivileged ones. This strategy, exemplified by the Ansar and Muhajir model, aims to sustainably eradicate poverty.
We appeal to all sectors to unite, sign a pact, and join the movement to end poverty in Pakistan. Let’s ensure no one sleeps hungry, and every child has access to education. It will take all of us to join hands to end the pandemic of extreme poverty.
