Concern for Children Trust (CFC) is a non profit, non government organization, founded in 1997. CFC is approved and registered under section 47(1) (d) of the Income Tax Ordinance of 1979 and is thus able to accept donations and offer tax deductible rebates.
In prior years, CFC has paid special attention to preventive and primary health care, health education and health awareness. While still engaged in these areas, in 2005 CFC turned its focus upon a specialized area: the identification (via needs' assessments), conception and eventual replication (upon successful implementation/ trials) of pilot projects.
CFC recognizes the lack of resources within the social services sector in Pakistan and strives to carry out each project in partnership with other organizations. In compliance with CFC objectives, successful pilot projects will serve as models for replication, in an effort to meet goals and build models for sustainable development for social problems concerning children within at-risk populations. CFC will publish models for a 30-day Disaster Relief model, a 6-month Medical Relief Camps Project and Healthcare Intervention in urban katchi abadis (slums) in December 2007. Additional organizational long term objectives include CFC's strive to become involved in Legislative Policy matters, serving as a provider of viable solutions and creative alternatives to existing State practices by means of advocacy. CFC began its advocacy practices in December 2007 with the Sustainable Community Driven Development Pilot Project in Mohammadi Colony via advocating for the land lease for the residents of this community.
