Bahria Town constructed Pakistan’s first modern welfare village in Kot Addu for the flood affectees of 2010. This modern village consists of fully constructed houses which are 6 marla units with 2 bedrooms, a veranda, kitchen, washroom and a walled courtyard with water, electric and modern sewerage connections. A 9ft boundary wall provides a secure territorial boundary for the village, protecting it from both, vice and natural calamity. This is the first modern welfare village in Pakistan that has a modern sewerage system & utility.
These homes have been constructed with a fusion of low-cost housing and quality. In addition to that, they have been designed to amalgamate with the “typical village lifestyle”. Many more Welfare Villages are also under construction in other cities across the nation.
Impact on Community
From the traces and teachings of history, we have learned and observed that this kind of development is a “winning formula”. Following the Second World War, former U.S. President; Franklin D. Roosevelt initiated the construction of homes on a massive scale throughout the nation, this had a ripple effect on reviving the American economy. Considering that, it is vital to mention that hundreds of thousands of people and families will get absorbed in this wave of development through direct as well as indirect means. This surge will provide immediate financial relief to all such people and their families. The vocational training that’s provided will increase the opportunities for skilled labor to flourish further while giving individuals an immense jumpstart for improving their economic conditions. Not only this, but the allied industries will also benefit incredibly with regard to the demand for construction materials such as bricks, steel, cement, crushing plants, pipes, etc. In all, the modern village will drive a surge of development and stability to those most in need along with other beneficiaries.
