About

We’ve been in Pakistan since 1992. We support the most marginalised groups to claim their rights, help children go to school and improve communities’ resilience to natural disasters.

Our approach
We help marginalised groups including women, street children and people with disabilities claim their rights by working with local governments to secure access to health care and clean water.

We campaign for women to be able to inherit and control land so they can have economic independence, and we encourage women to join our REFLECT circles, where they can learn to read and write. Members are also offered small loans, allowing them to start their own business ventures. 

To help eradicate forced child marriage we educate young girls and communities on its risks, and encourage women to participate in meetings to ensure girls remain in school. We also lobby government agencies to improve facilities in primary schools and campaign for school curriculums to include teaching on gender equality to both boys and girls.
