Ensuring Quality Care for Children: NCRC’s Visits to Islamabad Orphanages

In line with its empowering mandate, the NCRC embarked on a mission to safeguard and enhance the welfare of children across Pakistan. With a commitment to the best interests of the child, the Commission recently took a vital step by visiting orphanages within the vicinity of Islamabad to ensure that minimum quality care standards were being applied in these facilities.

The NCRC team’s visits extended to four orphanages: EDHI Homes, Pakistan Sweet Homes, Al-Khidmat Aghosh Homes, and SOS Village. By engaging with these orphanages and conducting thorough assessments, the Commission aimed to not only monitor existing practices but also make recommendations to enhance the implementation of child rights policies.

The Commission remains steadfast in its mission to ensure that all children, regardless of their circumstances, are provided with the care, support, and opportunities they deserve. These visits to Islamabad’s orphanages are a powerful example of NCRC’s proactive efforts to create a safer, more nurturing environment for the nation’s children.
