Due to the lack of an irrigation canal system, farmers in the area are dependent on rain for their crops. The climate in the area has changed over the past two decades due to lack of sufficient rains, which has resulted in sub-par crops and further pushed a significant population below the poverty line. Most farmers do not have the funds to establish tube wells to ensure a regular and consistent income from the agricultural lands that they manage. Moreover, the high cost of electricity and other fuel-based tube wells remain out of their reach. FMF has partnered with other non-governmental organizations (NGOs)and is looking for a bank to arrange subsidized loans for solar tube wells. These wells have a lower operation cost and can help farmers payback loans and have a stable income.
There are only two government schools in the village: an elementary school for girls and a middle school for boys. Due to a lack of funds and proper supervision, the majority of children lose interest and drop out of school in order to enter the workforce at a young age. For generations, a comprehensive number of children have opted to join either the armed forces or take non-skilled low-paying labor jobs, which do not lift their families above the poverty line. FMF is working on a long-term project to open a high school for boys and girls to ensure that every child has access to quality education and a fair chance of getting a decent job to help financially uplift his/her family. This project requires support from local politicians and other influential individuals.
The nearest government hospital with advanced diagnostic and treatment options is located three hours away and the majority of the residents cannot afford treatment costs at the hospital. Therefore, FMF plans to transform the current facility into a full medical complex to expand its services to help save lives. This will be a state-of-the-art medical complex with more physicians, dentists, eye specialists, and other health professionals making regular visits to administer sustained services to those in need of continued treatment. FMF is considering acquiring land for the new medical complex at a central location to provide access to a broader population of Mamdot and nearby towns such as Adlakka and Chakwalian.
