Mission Statement

MICT is dedicated to support communities and individuals in crisis. Our interventions include help for financially challenged students, patients and others stricken by poverty. In the past, we have supported causes ranging from sponsoring small scale businesses for unemployed individuals and food rations for impoverished communities.

Key Objectives

A brief outline of our main objectives defines the areas at the centre of MICT’s work:

MICT’s past work has involved intervening in crisis situations notably helping victims of floods in Sindh and torrential rains in south Punjab. We have also helped reached out to support victims of the security crisis in the northern Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province and natural calamities in Gilgit-Baltistan province.

Support to educational causes remains central to our work in ways ranging from financial assistance to students in need and sponsorship of workshops for training of teachers.

We continue to raise funds for support of patients in urgent need of financial assistance. Our future objectives include the creation of a network of volunteer Doctors who are committed to helping impoverished patients in need of care.

Our past work has included providing support to single mothers in need of assistance for their children. MICT’s future objectives include the creation of dedicated unit to run projects for empowerment of impoverished women.

MICT’s micro-finance programs have helped a number of unemployed individuals establish small businesses to create new sources of regular income. Our support to such causes has ranged from purchasing taxis to establishing small shops for our recipients.

A once a year food distribution programme during the islamic month of ‘Ramadan’ has led our food distribution campaigns. Elsewhere, providing emergency food packs has been central to MICT’s response for victims of natural disasters and security turmoil in parts of Pakistan.

About us

Widespread poverty across Pakistan has created the need for urgent action to intervene wherever possible. While MICT is committed to a variety of avenues for helping those in need, our ultimate objective is just one; to tackle the fallout from poverty. As a development oriented trust, MICT was established by the family of the late Doctor Syed Mohammad Hasanain Bokhari, an eminent pathologist, in line with his interest in serving humanity. MICT has undertaken a range of causes, notably through projects in education, healthcare, water supply lines and funding of small scale business ventures for poverty stricken and unemployed individuals. Just in the past year, MICT has spent almost ten million Rupees (U$100,000 approximately) for its work.

Some of the projects undertaken by MICT are featured below.
