Who We Are

“Passion for justice along with human development” and “enthusiasm to address societal issues” is the key driving force behind establishment and functioning of this organisation. The founding members are the self-motivated and energetic persons; their determination was therefore high and ironic. They gathered hundreds of other young persons and initiated this organisation with limited resources.

President/CEO

Mr. Muhammad Waqas Abid

The society – we are living in – have been long grappling with daunting challenges all around; poor governance and rule of law, violation of basic human rights, violence against women and transgender persons, child abuse, extreme poverty, illiteracy, inadequate service delivery, economic exploitation, bonded labour, environmental degradation, and child labour are the prominent to name among others. Majority of the people – particularly in rural areas – are not properly familiar with their basic rights and responsibilities. Governance institutions and service delivery departments are less efficient (due to several underlying reasons including resource constraint) in ensuring good governance system and delivering basic services to people.
