History

Founder Message

Pak Mission Society was founded back in 2004 with a clear vision for catalysing a national mission movement in Pakistan and to serve the unreached.
Today, we are working on different projects in regard to socio, economic, health and educational programs. We are working on a vision to provide help and assistance to the poor and marginalized and to make efforts for the development of our community.
The future looks strong and uplifting and with the continued support of our sponsors as well as individual donors we will continue to apply best practices in collaborating with initiatives at various levels to create winning strategies to bring a better quality life in unreached areas. I believe the practice of helping others should be an integral part of one’s life. I welcome you to join us and help shape the future of our community by helping them achieving their dreams, by strengthening them and by inspiring legacies for God’s glory.

Pak Mission Society Throughout The Years

Click on the years to find out what happened.

  1. A vision was born

    A vision was bornin 2004 when Mr. Adeel Rehmat, Executive Director PMS joined Missionaries on a prayer trip to Northern areas of Pakistan. Since that day, Mr. Adeelenvisioned to start a local missionary movement to uplift his community.A Board of six members under the name of Pakistan Mission Trust (PMT)was formed.

  2. First emergency relief

    In May 2005 PMT was registered under the Trusts Act 1882 in the district of Abbottabad with assistance from a lawyer who was able to guide Adeel and the PMT Board through the registration process. The lawyer, who had assisted in the registration process, gave Adeel 1,000 Pakistani rupees ($10) to open the bank account, PMT’s first ever donation. A devastating 7.6 magnitude of earthquake struck northern Pakistan and completely changed the direction of Adeel’s life and PMT’s trajectory. It also served as a reminder to Adeel that he had been called to serve in Pakistan and not in any other country.
    Responding to the earthquake was PMT’s first emergency relief activity. It started with the idea of buying empty plastic bags, distributing these bags among local Christians with the appeal to donate clothes and other household items to share with victims of the earthquake.

  3. PMT expands

    New administration staff were hired and the administrative structure was strengthened
    The management began planning long term intervention in Ghanool, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, where PMT had started out with relief work.Strong relationship was built with local communities.

  4. Received the first grant

    PMT was renamed Pak Mission Society (PMS) and a new constitution was drawn up and agreed upon in December 2007, affording the Board proper guidance and authority. PMT was then registered as PMS in February 2008. Towards the end of 2007 the PMS Board was strengthened through the addition of a number of new members, some of whom had been key in maintaining the PMS vision until that time.
    PMS received its first grant of $70,000 from Doctors Aid International to run a public health and hygiene project in Ghanool in the region of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, the area where PMS had spent significant time providing relief in the aftermath of the 2005 earthquake.
    PMS undertook a feasibility study to assess the viability of establishing a mother and child health centre (MCHC) in this area.PMS started using Peachtree accounting software installed to strengthen PMS’s financial systems.

  7. A Turning Point for PMS

Another significant opportunity for PMS was to partner with Dr. Jonathan Mitchell of Concentric Development with a grant from First Fruit for organizational development.
