Passion Pakistan

”If we want to make this great State of Pakistan happy and prosperous, we should concentrate on the well being of the people, and especially of the masses and the poor

Every one of you, no matter what his colour, caste or creed, is first, second or last a citizen of this State with equal rights, privileges and obligations…..”

Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah
Address, Constituent Assembly of Pakistan, 11 August 1947

Flt. Lt. Rashid Ahmed Khan Shaheed

Brief History

Rashid Memorial Welfare Organization (RMWO) was set up by a group of dedicated retired PAF officers in 1998 in memory of Flt. Lt. Rashid Ahmed Khan, who embraced ‘Shahadat’ on 13th December, 1997 when his Aircraft caught fire above a densely populated area.

In a struggle to save thousands on the ground, he maneuvered his Mirage away from the thickly populated area but in the effort sacrificed his own life. In the same spirit RMWO was set up to dedicate and give to others what is not ours – our life through the spirit to help those who need it the most.

Rashidabad, a Pilot Project of RMWO, is located in interior Sindh, 35 KMs from Hyderabad towards Mirpur Khas on the main Hyderabad – Mirpur Khas Highway. Spread over 100 acres, its Foundation Stone was laid on 13 December 1998 by the then Governor Sindh, Lt .Gen. (R) Moinuddin Haider. It encompasses all four elements of a sustainable society; education, health, environment and socio-economics.

Mission

Focus on eliminating illiteracy and alleviating deprivation from the country through establishing projects at district level. RMWO encompasses four essential elements of progress which must be addressed to help the disadvantaged through holistic approach:

Education
Health
Environment and
Socio Economic

Objective

Set up model villages throughout the country  integrating all essential facilities in a well-knit mosaic so as to ensure positively beneficial outflow to the needy rural folk – all under one roof.

Accomplish

Rashidabad is a city of collaboration. RMWO’s objectives are met by joining hands with experienced and credible welfare organizations in their own field, to set up operations in Rashidabad. The municipal facilities are provided by RMWO whereas operational expenditures are borne by the operating organization.

Success

Success of Rashidabad lies in the spirit of cooperation and resource sharing which is evident from the orngans working under Rashidabad.

This foundation is the perfect application of the preamble of the Swiss constitution.
The strength of the people is measured by the welfare of the weakest of its members.

The whole village is an excellent concept put together by one person with a vision.
If we had ten more persons just consider what one can do in the whole of Pakistan.

Rashidabad was a very inspiring and humbling experience. I am delighted to see the scale
at which this dream has blossomed over time. I take back the motivation to do more for
the project and make efforts to the concept beyond the Rashidabad kudos to Shabbir sb

Rashidabad -It shows what a group of people can do if they are dedicated to seek the
welfare of others. May this dream and kindness spread far beyond and those who come
