A Case Study….

On 17th March, 2012 an expected mother has been brought for birth delivery to a static medical camp in Malti during mid night. The necessary arrangements were there and female doctor was present at the time. The WMO checked up the expected mother and arranged for safe delivery process. It was a normal delivery and ended with male child born. Usually in district Badin women of the area are restricted to their homes. They cannot go outside for treatment, education, Jobs and shopping etc. The birth deliveries are attended by Traditional Birth Attendants (TBA) in their homes where there are no proper sterilization and hygiene conditions. That’s why the maternal mortality and infant mortality rates are higher. In the whole district of Badin there is no Women Medical Officer or female Gynecologist. Though in some health facilities lady health visitors (LHVs) have been appointed but when we had visited we did not found them in their respective health facilities. So in these conditions the static and mobile health facilities and medical camps of AHD funded by Global Giving are the valuable service for the people of the area especially for the women and children. And beside these it was first time that a woman gave birth a baby outside home in a health facility with the hands of skilled birth attendants. The father of the new born baby wished that if the name of the baby is given by AHD, so it will be my great pleasure. For this purpose a petty lottery of three different names has been conducted. The name of “Jahangir Ali” came out in the lottery and the baby has been given the name of “Kamran Akbar” The whole family of the child was very much happy and the father of the new born baby, Mr.Gulraiz Mast, Resident of UC Dubi, said a few words as below;   “ I and my whole family would be thankful throughout of my life for this kind of  support and help of AHD). And these two organizations have played a vital role for the development and prosperity of the area. I appreciate work done by AHD in district Badin and request AHD and other government and non government institutions for poverty alleviation schemes and developmental projects in district Badin & Thatta

50 sewing machines needed for young women Pakistan

Sewing machines for Sindhi teenage girls in Pakistan

Funding Target

£2550

April 2012

The Big Idea

Our tailoring project will enable 50 Sindhi teenage girls to learn to sew. They will complete a 6-month apprenticeship and learn to make clothes to sell within their village and at market for a small, but vitally important income. Sindhi girls need to supplement income from working in the fields.

Need

Sindhi girls are victimized and discriminated against in many ways. They suffer violence and indignity; their work in rural pakistan is limited to daily 'household' work - manual work in rice and cotton fields involving back-breaking, long hours under the hot sun - for very little pay. They desperately need an opportunity to earn money independently and our tailoring project would solve this problem by teaching skills that can be used to generate further income.

Solution

We want to provide 50 sindhi woman with sewing machines and a teacher. Once the women have learnt to sew, any income derived from making clothes will help to buy food for their family. At the same time it will give them self-respect as well as the opportunity to save money for the months during the year when there is no work available in the fields - typically 4 months per year. Sewing machines can be shared between 2 giving more sindhi women the opportunity to learn this skill.

Impact

Our project will give oppressed sindhi women greater financial independence. Also it will give them increased self-respect, as well as respect from others in their village, especially the men. In time, these women will pass on their sewing skills to their daughters and friends thus extending the benefits of this project to more sindhi families in need. Sindhi women work extremely well together as a group - they will support one another in future by sharing their machines.

Risk

There is a risk of not being able to secure the funding for all of the sewing machines.

Reporting

Donors will be sent regular reports about the tailoring project via email, containing photographs and accounts from the sindhi women and girls who have benefitted from being taught how to sew. Project updates will also be posted regularly on our website www. ahdpak.org
