The Poverty Alleviation and Social Safety Division (PASSD) plans to launch the ‘Maskan Program’ for elderly people to help uplift their living standards.
The initiative would be launched under Ehsas Program, an official of PASSD said, adding that the government intends to establish five ‘Ehsaas homes’ for needy elders in the country.
Just like the government’s other welfare initiatives, the government aims to secure a public-private partnership for this program.
He said that that several initiatives were in the pipeline to strengthen governance structures and promote pro-equity planning. Moreover, the government is also planning to introduce pro-poor goals for each ministry, and measurable indicators will be launched to track their performances.
These targets will be reflective of ministry’s division progress about Ehsaas program, he added.
