Millennium Fellowship Project: Khwaab-e-Hayat
Project focuses on the issue of women abuse and the respective shelter homes in Pakistan. It is divided into various stages, starting from completing our on-going research to better understand the root of these issues in Pakistan and the role of shelter home. Much of this has already been completed.
The next phase includes contacting numerous shelter homes and organizations already working on this cause.
A model is to be constructed that provides sustainable impact to this issue in Pakistan and that may be adapted by the youth in our country.
