Established in 1986, the Association for the Rehabilitation of the Physically Disabled (ARPD) stands as a beacon of hope and a champion of social justice. We are a registered Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) with a profound mission: to enhance the lives of people in underdeveloped and vulnerable communities, with a particular focus on individuals with disabilities.
At the heart of our organization is the Rehabilitation Center for the Physically Disabled (RCPD), located in Peshawar, Pakistan. Here, we provide a range of specialized healthcare services, including physiotherapy, custom prosthetic limb manufacturing, gait training, and speech therapy. Our goal is simple yet profound: to empower deserving individuals, offering them the tools, resources, and opportunities they need to lead lives filled with dignity, independence, and inclusion.
Our commitment to social justice extends to our Professional Development/Vocational Training Program, with a special emphasis on women’s empowerment. Through skills development in tailoring, jewelry crafting, beautician training, and digital literacy, we equip women with the means to secure meaningful employment and become valued contributors to society.
Education is a fundamental right, and at ARPD, we uphold this principle through our Inclusive School System. We welcome children with disabilities and provide quality education to all, regardless of caste, creed, religion, gender, or financial background. This approach promotes diversity, tolerance, and equal opportunity, nurturing an environment where every child can flourish.
In times of crisis, our Disaster Relief Program swiftly steps in, delivering essential aid, including food, clean water, shelter, and medical care, to affected areas. Our outreach extends to economically disadvantaged individuals in remote areas through Outreach Camps, bridging gaps in access to healthcare and services.
For over three decades, ARPD has been a force for change, transforming lives, and fostering inclusive communities. Join us on this journey of empowerment, where your support helps us make a tangible difference in the lives of those who need it most. Together, we create a world where everyone has the opportunity to thrive.
