About Us

In both Urdu and Arabic, the word “Tamir” or “Tameer” (تعمیر) means “construction” or “building.” It refers to the act of building, developing, or constructing something, whether it is physical infrastructure, institutions, or communities. In the context of our organization, Tamir represents the idea of building a better society, constructing opportunities, empowering communities and individuals with disabilities to lead fulfilling lives.

Tamir Welfare Organization (Tamir)

Tamir is a community development and welfare organization established on January 1, 1996, with a strong commitment to empowering marginalized communities. Registered under the Social Welfare Department (Government of Punjab) with the registration number 485/DDSW & WD/FSD/96, Tamir has been providing quality services in inclusive education, social rehabilitation, health, WASH, rehabilitation, and economic empowerment since its inception.

  • Education and Training: Establishing schools and training centers to provide quality education, vocational training, and skills development opportunities, equipping individuals with the tools they need for personal and professional growth.

Ensuring education for their children can further ensure a brighter, more prosperous future for the next generation.
