About Service and Development

Service and Development (S&D) is a non-profit organization that seeks to empower underprivileged sections of Pakistani society through financial assistance and skill training programs. Since its inception, S&D has undertaken several education and vocational training initiatives, while also expanding its operations to include disaster relief, refugee support and medical assistance. As an overarching objective, the organization actively seeks to facilitate women and children’s passage into professional and vocational training, and thereby pave the way for them to become active participants of their communities.

Mission Statement

Service and Development is committed to building a better future for the women and children of Pakistan. We have been running a scholarship and vocational training program since 1980, which we aspire to sustain, while also expanding our other projects to positively impact more lives. Likewise, we aim to continue our emergency relief efforts, medical assistance to local hospitals and other financial services.

Our organization has made several strides since its inception, and with the help of donations from generous Pakistani citizens, we hope to carry on with a renewed effort toward accomplishing our goals.

2012 has been an eventful year for Service and Development (S&D). Our organization applied for certification from the Pakistan Centre for Philanthropy (PCP), which required a lengthy application procedure. Many S&D members were involved for much of early 2012 in gathering completed paperwork for this application. In September 2012, a PCP evaluation team visited S&D offices and also inspected some of our ongoing projects in the field. After the finalization of their Evaluation Report, S&D was given PCP certification in October 2012.

The recently attained certification from the PCP will enable S&D to streamline its governance procedures and also allow the organization access to a wider source of funding. Most importantly, the certification has helped us obtain a much awaited tax-exemption status for S&D. Ever since receiving the PCP certification we are continuously striving to improve our procedures, improve documentation and build our website. We consider these to be important targets for the year 2013.

In accordance with PCP Guidelines, S&D members passed resolutions pertaining to the investment of surplus funds that were subsequently included in its Charter as Article 58. Also in agreement with application guidelines, S&D opened a savings account with Habib Bank Limited.

In the phase following PCP certification, the task of availing tax exemption also proved a lengthy process, but we were successful in achieving this status. This particular process was facilitated by our accounting consultants who are continuously supporting S&D in modernizing and updating its documentation and record keeping.

There were some dedicated efforts at raising funds, particularly by our Executive Member Mrs. Mumtaz Saif. She held a charity lunch at her home in December 2012, which helped raise Rs. 35,500/. Mrs. Saif also auctioned donated designer ladies shoes to raise an additional Rs. 90,000/. Fundraising initiatives by members would continue to generate funds on a self-help basis that remains an essential and salient feature of Service and Development.

All of Service and Development’s programmes have been running successfully over the year 2012. Our educational scholarships were sustained, while increased funding for Paradise Public School in Tarnol has enabled our organization to supervise infrastructural development at the school building. There has been a gradual increase in vocational training programmes over 2012, which we hope to continue in the coming years. Health programmes have also been continued, details of which are provided in the following sections.

Education and Vocational Training

Education and Vocational Training Service and Development is committed to providing funding for education and skill

Service and Development is committed to providing funding for education and skill training to deserving students from less privileged families. A major proportion of our budget is allocated each year towards enhancing individual skills through both formal education and vocational training. In 2012 we have gradually tried to shift our focus towards providing greater vocational training. We intend to continue to do so in the coming years. The primary reason for this has been that we are able through vocational trainings to impact the lives of many more people, in less time and money. The details of educational scholarships and skill training at various institutions are given below:

Education Programmes

Under the Service and Development education programme, scholarships are given to students to pursue higher studies at the Rawalpindi Medical College, University of Engineering Taxila, College of Medical Technicians, and at other institutions as per the applications of deserving students received by S&D. Given the poor selection criterion and high costs at private universities, S&D in their October 2012 meeting decided to adopt a policy

for any future applications. The policy stated that:

1) Selection will be based on merit along with need; 2) Preference will be given to those with 1st divisions; 3) Preference will be given to students for Masters level courses. 4) More scholarships will be provided for vocational training. 5) For formal degrees funding will be provided in government institutions instead of private institutes; and 6) One time scholarships to be limited.

Included in our education programme is providing financial assistance for Paradise Public school in Tarnol as well as for students at various other schools and colleges. Rah-e-Haq school that was being run by S&D was gradually closed by August 2012 and student’s admissions at various government schools were ensured by S&D. The school was closed because of the high costs involved in running it and difficulties in managing the school. Many of the students who did not have B-forms, a pre-requisite for admission in government schools, were also helped by S&D staff that helped in securing their admissions. Our organization also gave each student uniforms and school bags to ease the transition.
