Women Empowerment

Hare Rama Foundation Pakistan is engaged in promoting gender equality and addressing women empowerment issues since its inception in year 2002. The Foundation’s first ever project (year 2008) focused the issues of violence against women (VAW) particularly the issues of honor killing.

 Over  the  period  of  8-9  years  of  rich  experience  of  working  on  women  issues;  the Foundation has well increased its conceptual understanding and knowledge of the issues of marginalized women and the women vulnerable to domestic violence. 

 During its work on gender issues; the Foundation explored and worked with a number of critical  stakeholders  who  could  be  of  great  support  as  for  as  addressing  the  issues  of gender  and  women  empowerment  –  particularly  VAW  is  concerned.  For example, the Foundation closely worked with School Teachers, LHVs and Media Representatives to increase awareness and sensitize the local communities and administration for addressing gender issues.  Working with police officers was another successful approach the Foundation successfully tested.
