The future goal of the Benazir Kafalat program is to allocate more budget to this program. By allocating more budget the government can facilitate more women through this program. Till now there are 9.3 million beneficiary women who are benefiting from this scheme. 

The mission of the government is to eliminate poverty and help those who are underprivileged sections of society, especially women. And in the future, I am thinking about a skills development program for women also. So, women can earn money through these skills.
