Education

Mission Education is a national level programme from Mashabrum Welfare and Development Organization Baltistan which focuses on basic education for underprivileged children and youth. MWDOB believes that whether you are addressing healthcare, poverty, population control, unemployment or human rights, there's no better place to start than in the corridors of Education. Because education is both the means as well as the end to a better life: means, because it empowers an individual to earn his/her livelihood and the end because it increases one's awareness on a range of issues – from healthcare to appropriate social behavior to understanding one's rights - and in the process evolve as a better citizen. WORKING MODEL - Social Venture Philanthropy MWDOB, adopted this novel concept of social venture capitalism to bring together business and social entrepreneurs to discover creative solution to complex social problem. By amalgamating business practices and new economy values into social landscape. Smile Foundation intends to initiate creative approaches towards philanthropic endeavors. This new platform would get people to think about their charitable giving, at the same time expanding horizons for funding sources to community wealth. Following philosophy of Social Venture Philanthropy (SVP), MWDOB, identifies genuine local grass root initiatives doing exemplary work in promoting children’s education and health and empowers them. and extend financial support, technical expertise and capacity building of these initiatives. In addition to these initiatives MWDOB also support established local initiatives doing effective work for this cause by support.

Due to lack of quality education for the people of this area is far behind in education, awareness and development. In order to overcome these shortage of education facilities, the population of this area has worked hard on self help bases and some very basic requirements has been provided.

However, due to the physical features of these areas the provision of existing educational facilities has been disappointing.

The education facilities and centers provided to the population but the Organization on self help basis, are facing acute shortage of qualified teachers, laboratory and furnishing facilities as well as to warm the classrooms in winter. MWDOB focused on educate as core of sustainability of all our developmental activities. Provision of scholarships to bright students ensured continuation of their further studies beyond the village. The community managed school (Amin Brak Public School Kanday since 2006) has set a trend of quality and meaningfulness of education in the area.

Moreover, this origination feels the need to upgrade the existing schools to middle and higher classes for which resources in cash and kind are needed.

Health

Kanday Union Council area has been encountering great health problems like other places of Baltistan. As the population has very little economic resources, mostly un-educated and being far from hospitals in Khaplu & Skardu towns, especially the women and children face great problems in getting medically checked and treatments. Mother's illness and infanticide ratio is much higher.

Kanday is the second last village of Mashabrum Union of District Ghanche and there is no any health facility for women and children. Women of this valley is facing big problem during their pregnancy. We are in planning to make one Mother & Child Health Center (MCH) for the women and children of thus Union Council area which will provide check and treatment services to the needy women and children .

We need your help to save the lives of pregnant and ailing women and infanticides.
