Islamabad:The Chairperson of the Benazir Income Support Programme (BISP), Rubina Khalid, reiterated the organization’s unwavering commitment to the vision of Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto, with a strong focus on women empowerment and financial independence. This declaration came during a visit by a delegation from the National Institute of Management (NIM), Peshawar, at the BISP headquarters today.

The delegation consisted of 18 participants from the 40th Mid-Career Management Course (MCMC), who interacted with BISP leadership to gain a deeper understanding of the program’s operations and impact. Mrs. Rubina Khalid highlighted that BISP has consistently adhered to the guiding principles established by President Asif Ali Zardari since its inception in 2008, ensuring that stipends are disbursed directly to women beneficiaries to enhance their financial autonomy.

“In collaboration with various organizations, we have signed Memorandums of Understanding (MoUs) to provide skill and technical training to the members of beneficiary families, enabling them to rise out of poverty,” stated Mrs. Khalid.

Secretary of BISP, Amer Ali Ahmad, provided a comprehensive overview of the programme’s key initiatives, including Kafaalat, Taleemi Wazaif, Nashonuma, Undergraduate Scholarship, and the National Socio-Economic Registry (NSER). He discussed the implementation of a new payment model involving six banks to improve the efficiency and reach of financial aid distribution.

Ahmad emphasised the authenticity and extensive use of the NSER database by various public and private entities for different social safety projects. He also addressed the crucial issues of stunting and malnutrition among mothers and children, underscoring the impact of the Nashonuma Programme in addressing these challenges. The visit concluded with a detailed Q&A session, where participants engaged with BISP leadership, gaining valuable insights into the program’s strategic initiatives aimed at empowering women and alleviating poverty.
