“Poverty poses greatest threat to the solidarity of any country; it also weakens the will and commitment of people to act in public affairs as a free and independent people. It was 1992 when Pakistan Bait-ul-Mal (PBM) was established by then and today’s Prime Minister of Pakistan, Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif, with the aim of helping the poorest of the poor of the country by enabling them to come out of a vicious cycle of misery. This organization also reflects the vision of making Pakistan an Islamic Welfare State in a true sense.
I’m committed to undertake the duty of making Pakistan Bait-ul-Mal a forward looking organization with a pivotal role to combat the menace of poverty in the country. I feel my prime responsibility to serve the vulnerable people of my country in the field of social protection including healthcare, education, rehabilitation, women empowerment and rehabilitation, irrespective of their religion, age, gender, caste, creed or political affiliation, enabling them to lead an honorable life in the society.
Grand task is required to address these social issues, for which a comprehensive plan has been devised on the basis of quantitative, qualitative, scientific and other empirical and integrated approaches. I’ve accepted this vital challenge to deal with the multi-dimensional issues of the poverty like hunger, illiteracy, diseases, age-related illness, low living standards of women and other serious concerns of the society.
To achieve the real target which was behind the establishment of this foremost organization of the country, I’m determined to put my vision into action on the principles of T E A formula:-
In this regard, a computing and e-governance environment, based on modern IT applications and Integrated Infrastructure, has been introduced in the organization for transaction, communication, planning, management and productivity improvement. It would enable PBM to get International Recognition and the organization would also be trustworthy for National & International Donors.”
