Pakistan lies between India and Afghanistan and has about 190 million inhabitants. With a share of 97 % the Muslim population has formed the country. The 1.6 % of Christians are only a tiny, unimportant minority. They belong to the poorest communities in the country: Most of them live in slums and the children haven often no chance to get a good basic school education, they have to work as day-labourers (sweepers, household helpers etc.) to earn enough for the daily necessities of life for their families. Widows/ widowers and their children are mostly effected in their destitute situations.
In Karachi they provide a basic education and further training for about 100 children in three homes and support further 65 children from widowed families externally. The hostel in Rawalpindi has space for 30 girls. About 220 children and their families from the surroundings are supported to get a school and vocational education.
