Livelihood Generation

Today, over one-third of Pakistan’s 190 million people survive below the poverty line, unable to bear the cost of basic food, clothing and shelter. As education, health and infrastructure facilities take centre stage in development work besides food, shelter and clothing, providing opportunities for livelihood generation on a sustainable basis becomes increasingly important.

Flood Relief & Rehabilitation

As a national company and major stakeholder in sustainable development and growth in the country, PPL has always played a proactive role in times of national emergencies. During 2010 to 2014 when different parts of the country were hit by heavy rains, the company moved forward to generously support affected communities.

Women Welfare Centre, Sui

Economic independence is the keystone for empowering women and expanding livelihood options for marginalized families. PPL promotes women entrepreneurship by building capacity for livelihood generation. To this end, the company has supported the Women Welfare Centre (WWC) at Sui since 2006.

Sui Field Hospital

Sui Field Hospital (SFH) constructed and operated by PPL for provision of healthcare facilities to its employees in 1956 however, population of surrounding communities i.e. 40% of total annual turnout is also provided free of cost healthcare facility at SFH.

Education

If development efforts are to be sustainable, stakeholders must have the necessary educational background to take the work forward without external intervention. This is precisely the thinking underpinning Pakistan Petroleum Limited (PPL)’s CSR Programme and the reason behind its emphasis on promoting education and learning through formal and informal channels.
