AMZI Home & Masjid-e-Shehbazi
The AMZI Home, constructed at a cost of Rs. 60 million, is the jewel in the crown at Rashidabad. It is a magnificent purpose-built structure which houses 288 orphans and 70 senior citizens. This has been wholly built by the Mustafa Benevolent Trust who have extended substantial support in other fields of activity to make the Rashidabad project truly dynamic and beneficial for the rural poor.
The Masjid-e-Shehbazi is a white structure beside the artificial lake and the AMZI Home and can house 4,000 faithful at a time. There is a facility for women to pray on the first floor and the basement serves as an Islamic information center where the Arabic language is taught to those who are interested.
Batool Shah Microfinance Project
An interest-free microfinance project has been set up with seed money of Rs. 1 million. The first beneficiaries are a group of 41 rural women who have completed 6 months training at the DMKM vocational training centre in May 2010. Each lady has been provided a sewing machine on easy installments, with the total cost being less than what each would have paid to purchase the machine from the factory.
The AMZI Water Filtration Plant
A reverse-osmosis plant with a capacity of 5,000 gallons a day has been set up by the Mustafa Benevoloent Trust to supply clean potable water to the residents of Rashidabad.
Rashidabad boasts three football pitches, three hockey fields, one cricket ground, eight basketball courts, eight volleyball courts, four tennis courts and four badminton courts and a swimming pool, and recently, a squash complex has been commissioned. This features two squash courts, complete with wooden floors and glass doors, built to international standards. The entire funding was received from USA (Sameera & Khurram) for this purpose and it was completed in August 2009. It has been named after the donors' family member. The first Rehana Nazar National Junior Squash championship was held in February 2010, in which 190 participants from across the country participated. Two Gold medals have been instituted for excellence: the Bilquis Mushaf and the Zahid Anis medals.
We felt that to attract good doctors and teachers from urban areas, suitable living quarters, comparable to those in the city, should be provided. To this end, 25 residential houses and 32 apartments have been built to facilitate the teachers and doctors staying in Rashidabad so they can be available when needed.Another 24 apartments (Rehan Nazar Home) have been completed to house para-medical and low-paid employees.
