Pakistan

Seventy-five percent of Christians in Pakistan live below the poverty line. Many lack educational opportunities that would pull them out of poverty. Partnering with ARDF, the Diocese of Lahore will equip a local school and provide on-site medical care. The vocational school will offer one year of training in automobile technology, electrical work, driving, and stitching. After completing the training, students will receive help securing jobs—or seed money to start their own businesses. The Diocese will also provide monthly healthcare for students as well as mobile health clinics to reach out to the community.
