BISP CASH Transgender Program: Supporting Transgender Communities
Benazir Income Support Program (BISP) has launched an important initiative to assist economically vulnerable groups, with a special focus on assisting transgender persons, who are often in dire need of financial assistance. Recognizing this need, the Government of Pakistan has implemented new measures within the BISP framework to ensure access to financial assistance for transgender people.
The launch of BISP CASH Transgender Program is aimed specifically at catering to the needs of transgender persons. BISP tehsils are actively engaged in registering transgender persons, streamlining the registration process for their benefit. To facilitate ease of registration, the government has designated Saturday as a special day for transgender persons to visit their nearest tehsil office and complete their survey. The initiative seeks to minimize any potential challenges faced by transgender persons during the registration process.
