Stanford University Appreciates Ehsaas Program: IK’s Initiative

A paper has been published by Stanford University that appreciates and elaborate how world can learn from former Prime Minister Imran Khan’s Ehsaas Progam.

The article was published on June 6 by Stanford University lauding Ehsaas program initiative for poverty alleviation. The title of the article is, “Frameworks for a Developmental Welfare State: Lessons From Pakistan’s Ehsaas Program.”

To better the lives of the most vulnerable and impoverished members of society, the Pakistani government started Khan’s major welfare state plan, the Ehsaas Program, into action.

The initiative gave qualified households access to health, education, and livelihood services as well as cash payments. Over 4 million families had benefited from the Imran Khan program as of May 2020.

The findings indicate that “these reforms have enabled Ehsaas to successfully scale impact, increase transparency, and improve the efficiency of its interventions, whilst building trust amongst beneficiaries and program administrators.”

The Ehsaas program, that aimed to reduce poverty and provide assistance to the nation’s marginalized populations, was dubbed a “state of the art” project by Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates earlier this year.

During his first trip to Pakistan, he made these comments to Dr. Sania Nishtar, a former special assistant to the prime minister for reducing poverty.
