Welcome To Almasoomeen Yateem Trust
Almasoomeen Yateem trust is a non-government, non-poltical voluntary organisation established purely as a reconised charitable trust with a clear aim and declared objective to serve the orphans, widows, ill, down-trodden and other needy persons irrespective of their colour, caste, religion, gender and region.
The trust came into existence in March 2005 at Masjid-e-Abu-Turab at Nabdipora after a great deal of discussions headed by very famous religious person “Alhaj Aga Syed Mustafa Rizvi”. The Trust represents the first ever voluntary organization for orphans of this kind in Jammu and Kashmir. Initially it started at Nabdipora, Zadibal seven kilometers from Lal Chowk Srinagar to help the orphans falling in the area from Narwara to Botakadal, although with very meager resources, but within a couple of years its domain widened to whole Srinagar city. It was 2007 when the board of trustees planned to construct an orphanage. The Trust gained great public respect and support in acknowledgment of social service. Thus the chairman along with other trustees selflessly visited the downtrodden communities especially orphans and widows to bring them under the umbrella of the trust. At present, the trust covers whole Kashmir valley, Kargil and Leh and provides financial support to more than 100 orphan families.
In 2007 the trustees framed and developed a complete plan for future work. As per plan the trust took a piece of land at Sheribhat
on lease from Custodian Department J&K Government and started construction of an orhanage for boys on it. THe construction work was completed in a record time of 15 months and tthe building having a c apacity for 70 orphans was commissioned as "ALMASOOMEEN BOYS HOSTEL" on 12th June 2009. At present it provides accommodation, quality education, health care and playing facilities to 52 boys.
As per plan, the work for the construction of second orphanage for accomdation of orphan girls was started in 2011. A piece of land measuring about 9500sft was identifed at Sheribhat, Srinagar, puchased from its owner for the consideration of Rs 10.08 million [Rupees one crore and eight lakh INR]. Soil test was done through a NIT Srinagar, Construction plan was developed through Archetect Hakim Sameer Hamdani and building plan was prepared through Er. Ab. Roub [Former Professor in NIT]. Then application along with construction plan and other necessary documents was submitted to Commissioner Srinagar Municipal Coorporation for seeking building permission. Due to huge public demand, construction work was started in October 2013 [Updated on 02.12.2014]
