Where We Work
PMS believes in a world where men, women and children from vulnerable and unreached communities enjoy the fullness of life, living with hope, dignity and respect. What this means is that we are committed to working in the most marginalised, disadvantaged and impoverished districts across the country. These districts are overwhelmingly rural, where 46 per cent of household live below the poverty line of $1.25 per day. PMS had two broad regions of focus, the north and the south. While impoverished communities in these two regions face different layers of marginalisation and disadvantage, many of the end results are the same.

North of Pakistan
The north of Pakistan has extreme geography that makes access to services difficult. The mountains in this part of the country are some of the highest in the world. As a result communities are often isolated and can be cut off for months at a time during winter. In this region educational attainment is low and development indicators across the board are poor, often compounded by inadequate infrastructure. In the north PMS primarily works in the district of Kohistan, the incidence of poverty is extremely high.

South of Pakistan
In the south of the province of Punjab and in the province of Sindh, where PMS is working, communities face the two extremes of both drought and annual flooding. Climate change is acknowledged as worsening the effects of these two extremes. As a result, food insecurity is greatest in these areas and livelihoods are adversely impacted. Development indicators in many of the districts in these two areas are poor. In addition to other districts, PMS is working in the district of Rajanpur where 44 per cent of households fall below the poverty line. Rajanpur is one of the country's most impoverished districts.
