Colour of skin should not stand in the way of your

By Tara Dawood | Project Leader

The Colour of skin should not stand in the way of your dreams. We started this project because colorism is real. Even in 2022, Too many people judge others by the color of their skin, and in the case of Pakistan, it is the young girls who get the brunt of this behavior.

We began with the summit, thanks to your support, and our working towards workshops to help improve the self-esteem of these young girls.

From a very young age, they are taught that the color of their skin is a handicap, a barrier, an obstacle… to their dreams, hopes and desires. Whether career or marriage.

Your contribution not only works toward improving their beaten-down self-esteem, but also in breaking down society's prejudices and damaging long-standing behavior patterns.
