“Abiding its Vision, Mission and Objectives, it’s a very proud feeling to share that AWARD has completed its 29 years of dedication and commitment to improve the lives of rural women of Pakistan. AWARD Pakistan recognizes its responsibility to generate a firm, lasting and positive impact upon the communities in which we work and live. This commitment is a core pillar of AWARD’s Mission, Vision and Values.
In these 29 years, AWARD has grown up from a small room organization to a National level organization with its 3 offices in Faisalabad, Multan and Mansehra.
We made our access possible in the rural areas, transformed rigid mentalities, sensitized communities about women’s rights and provided opportunities of education, skill, business, information and awareness to more than 80,633 direct beneficiaries and 403,165 indirect beneficiaries of Central Punjab, Southern Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhaw. Respect of culture and the male sensitization towards women rights were the core strategies which ensured the successful implementation of all our development projects.
We want to thank all our supporters and donors (local, regional, national and international) who have supported us in all these 29 years and encouraged us to put our efforts in transforming the society. We also want to thank all our online visitors and those who intend to be the part of the change in future.
Our online donation system is safe and secure and now open to accept donations. Please do not hesitate to contact the staff and they would be happy to help you”
Thank you once again
