Support Skills Training in One Of The World's Largest Slums

Help the youth develop skills to earn halal income and support their families.

Nestled on the outskirts of Karachi lies one of the biggest slums in the world: Orangi Town.

A home for 2.4 million Pakistanis dealing with the daily struggles of survival.

The sight that greets their eyes everyday is a scene full of mountains of garbage.

Crumbling walls, pockets of violence, the grip of drug abuse, homelessness, and lack of job opportunities to make ends meet…

All woven together in the fabric of this difficult reality.

The children struggle to learn due to their challenging circumstances…

Forced into a life they did not choose.

Even their parents, those pillars of guidance, are unable to read and write,
And women are denied the basic right to education and employment,
Trapped in a relentless cycle of illiteracy and hopelessness…

But let’s be clear about one thing – it is not their fault.

They are victims of a system that has failed to support those in need.

Together, we can break the chains & empower those in Orangi Town.

Insha’Allah.

Break the Chains of Hopelessness Through Vocational Training

In a world where equality and rights are frequently demanded, 

Orangi Town remains a place with limited access to good education and skill-building programs for women especially. 

About 50% of the women in Orangi Town have never attended school

Most women face restricted access to formal education.

Education and a worthy skillset can change their lives for the better.

 

In this corner of Karachi, 

The women are confined to household chores, their true talents remaining hidden…

And the men are settling for jobs that fail to ignite their potential.

But the spirit of these people prevails. 

They strive to make their mark on the local economy.

Defying the odds stacked against them. 

35-year-old Naseera’s remarkable journey is worth mentioning here.

Naseera is a mother of three. Her husband works as an electrician who works hard but the wages are below the minimum.

Together, as a family, they were struggling to make ends meet.

Naseera was forced to take her eldest two children out of school due to financial constraints.

It was in these desperate times, she learnt to stitch and do hand embroidery.

She got a job at a local garment factory for stitching.

Soon with determination, Naseera honed her skills and managed to buy her own sewing machine.

She now earns enough to support her household and send her children back to school.

Her inspiring journey reminds the community that skill can overcome any obstacle.
