Executive Director's Message

It is matter of great pride to share the foundation, on which SRPO exists and contributes in development of the society. Though it is self-explanatory, SRPO is women led organization. We started working to sensitize women in 1997. It was the crucial era when women were not considered to be part of development process. There was very congested environment for women. It was not easy job to become change ambassador, particularly in such discouraging society where women did not have space and most probably were considered to deal with domestic work only. Being a woman, I experienced such constraints that often meant to kill potential and competencies of women. I dreamed that, there was need of person or institution to challenge such a system and launch the move against the baseless and fake limitations for women. I was not only, who cared about, there were few others in the same boat, and we started discourses on women issues.

While endeavoring against such taboos, we felt there must be a formal platform to strengthen and empower women groups. After a series of sitting and serious discussions we decided to establish SRPO in 2001. I am lucky enough and thanked to struggling women partners for their trust, who hold me responsible to lead SRPO.

I feel immense pleasure to share that, SRPO objectively expanded areas of operations and, so far, implemented 38 projects on food security, nutrition, agriculture, livelihood, WASH, health, education, Human & minority rights and emergencies in 24 districts of Sindh province. I tried my best to intact partnership and strong coordination with the provincial Sindh government, national, international non-government organizations (INGOs) and UN agencies.

SRPO values communities and serves them with respect and dignity. I feel privileged to share progress that, SRPO has formed 2300 village based organizations, capacitated 11560 VBO members on different topics, ensured safe drinking water facilities through installation of hand pumps, improved sanitation conditions by constructing latrines in government schools, contributed in reducing stunting and malnutrition with distribution of goats, and poultry among deserving families. SRPO also provides primary health services through Community Health Center, increased literacy among adolescent girls, enhanced skills of adult women and protect human rights particularly of minority communities, empowering women & youth, worked for reducing forced marriages and forced conversions. Also doing advocacy on various burning issues to create joyful and just society, more importantly SRPO has contributed in promulgating Hindu Marriage Bills from Sindh Assembly.


In the last but not least, I must thank to BoD for continued support and valuable input in delivering best to deserving communities. On behalf of SRPO, I pay gratitude to communities for due cooperation with SRPO at all level and accepting it as their own initiative. Simultaneously, this entire achievement was not possible without sincere efforts of SRPO team and generous assistance of partners. SRPO is committed to provide the best services to the people living with discrimination in backward areas of Sindh.
