Looking back on the past year operations of NYMT in the field of development there is visibly an
amazing growth of organization both in terms of program outreach and institutional strengthening.

Our experience confirms that social and economic development process must take into
consideration people’s awareness, understanding and acceptance. Strategies need to be
identified, designed, executed and evaluated by the poor themselves based on their own needs
and perceptions. Participation of the deprived ones is an essential feature of the development

With the main goal of economic and social empowerment of underprivileged persons and
betterment of the poorer section of the society, interventions in the field of micro finance,
education, health, training and capacity building have helped the poorer of communities their
anxieties and gain more confidence in changing their fates collectively.

Heartiest thanks for entire moral and financial support of our sponsors (Yousaf family, Wajda
Group) and NYMT team for the effective implementation & completion of the job. His vast
experienced, consistent encouragement and careful supervision guided us through the exercise.

We are indebted to the great cooperation and help of our partner communities and CBGs
members for their commitment and enthusiasm for the successfully implementation and
participation, timely feed back and commitment with development & empowerment of poor

We are grateful to all NYMT team members and volunteers for participation and moral support for
the achievement of the results.




Transforming the cherished dream of sustainable development seems to be an uphill task, but
NYMT experience shows that this gigantic goal can be triumphantly achieved by mobilizing the
local human resources and build up their capacity to solve their socio-economic and tangible

problems collectively. In the vicissitude of life, people find themselves stuck up in a blind alley
when one does not have any way out, a sincere helping hand can be a silver lining in such odd
circumstances which can help to resolve ones problems however greater in magnitude they may

NYMT believes that the real development can only be acquired by building up the capacity of
people for collective action at the grass root level to overcome their social and economic
problems. The main concentration is on ensuring the empowerment of people for self reliance.

NYMT has experienced a number of cases where women rose to the occasion and shared the
burden of their families. It has been observed that a number of women working as a group can
increase the efficiency of development activities by mobilizing local resources and skills.

The effort on the part of NYMT to involve communities in a process of development through
mobilization, capacity building and empowerment will lead to achieve the long term goal of
sustainable development through capacity building of the communities and make them reliant in
overcoming their problems.

Development endeavors have expanded the outreach of NYMT to 10 Areas of Lahore and 04
union councils and also provided a strong institutional base. Through the assimilation of social
service pertaining to health, education, trainings and economic services comprising of Micro
finance and enterprise development. NYMT offers an integrated approach of development to the
target communities.

Programs Implementation Methodology
NYMT has unique, comprehensive, and innovative implementation methodology. The intervention
of any program depends on an effective and efficient community social mobilization and
participatory approach. These are the ways to make possible for attaining social and economic
change in the society. Therefore, NYMT makes sure effective and practical social mobilization
and participatory approach in mentioned community strengthening programs. The NYMT
programmatic operational methodology is as under program

       Meeting with the communities
       Baseline survey, Feasibilities, Evaluation and prioritization of problems
       CDO/Group formation
       Community Capacity Building
       Implementation/Execution of Programs/Projects
       Planning, Monitoring, Evaluation & Research
       Effective reporting mechanism
       Effective programmatic documentation

                                 Social Mobilization
The social mobilization & development sector is the core sector of the organization. NYMT
believes that the concept of development can not be realized without establishing small
institutions on grassroots level, which provide a platform to community, & enriches with the sense
of empowerment and let the process of their development boost. NYMT has introduced the

formation of CBGs (Community Based Groups) through Social Mobilization to ensure their active
participation in the process of development.

NYMT considers the social mobilization a basic element in the effective completion of any
development project. That is why, before launching any program or project, NYMT sensitize and
mobilize its target community so that they can gather on a common platform and struggle to solve
their socio-economic problems on participatory basis. Once a community is completely mobilized,
NYMT leads that community towards the formation of Community Based Groups.

CBGs are a representative organization which later on plays a vital role in social and economical
development of the poor areas. After the CBGs formation, NYMT holds different workshops and
trainings to build the capacity of CBGs.

                                           Social Mobilization


NYMT Believes
Social Mobilization is an excellent approach that enables community to organize for collective
action, to resolve common problems and work towards community development.

 To create critical consciousness & organize communities for sustainable development.
 Make CBGs development oriented, sustainable and responsive to local needs and priorities
 Motivation and organizing communities to carryout development through mutual self help.

NYMT Social Mobilization Process & CBGs Formation
Social Mobilization is a persistent process and NYMT believes that “Social mobilization” is an
excellent approach that enables people to organize for collective action, to resolve common
problems     and work towards community        development because poor people have limited
sources and unable to improve their socio economic status on individual basis. Therefore they
have needed a common plate form where they can collectively identify their problems and
sources. Following are the steps involved in CBGs formation:

   First Contact
   Community Meetings
   Community Participation and Problem identification through PRAs
   Community action planning
   CBGs Formation
   Capacity building
   Development Awareness
   Resources Management
   Networking & Linkages.

NYMT ensures the participation/representation of all population i.e. profession, religions and
sects in a community Based Groups (CBGs).

Microfinance & Enterprise Development

NYMT is empowering marginalized, deprived, neglected, oppressed and poorest sections of the
society through Microfinance & Enterprise Development program since Oct, 2009. NYMT has
started its Microfinance operations from one area & now covering 10 areas under a group /
Individual lending methodology to establish micro-enterprises. Microfinance program plays a vital
role in reducing poverty of the distressed people. Credit helps investment and creates self-
employment resultantly enhance capital and ensure future protection. We believe poverty is a
multidimensional and complex phenomenon. The problem requires an integrated approach to be

Now a days Microfinance & Enterprise Development program is being supported by Yousaf family
and Wajda Group. NYMT Microfinance services are operational in areas of Walton district Lahore
under Qarz-e-Hasna project. NYMT initiated microfinance & enterprise development program to
uplift the social and economic status of marginalized, deprived, neglected, oppressed and poorest
communities without any distinction of male and female. Microfinance serves as a viable option
for the poor community to have credit facilities to develop small-scale business opportunities to
improve their livelihood.

Effective provisions of the microfinance definitely stimulate the uplift of the poor, and serve an
efficient mean in reducing poverty dilemma. Microfinance and enterprise development program is
implemented thorough strong process of social mobilization.Without community involvement and
participation, development initiatives either in the economic or social sector have little chance of
success especially at grassroots level, where majority of the population resides.

Vision: Uplift the living standard and empowerment of low-income communities on sustainable
basis through providing quality micro finance services.

Mission Statement: Sustainable socio-economic development with focus on poverty alleviation
and gender equality. We are demand driven and care for our target communities through
transparent process.
