Violence against women and girls is a grave violation of human rights. Occurring in public and private places, it has many forms, ranging from domestic and intimate partner violence to sexual harassment and assault, trafficking, sexual violence and gender-related killing.
Its impact spans from immediate to long-term multiple physical, sexual and mental consequences for women and girls, including death. It negatively affects women’s general well-being and prevents women from fully participating in society. Violence not only has negative consequences for women but also their families, the community and country. It has tremendous costs, from greater health care and legal expenses, and losses in productivity, impacting national budgets and overall development.
Pakistan has several laws and policies against various forms of violence. Challenges remain however in implementing these measures. Many women still lack access to free or affordable essential services in sectors such as health, police, justice and social support to ensure their safety, protection and recovery. Not enough is done to prevent violence, which is the most challenging but also effective way to eliminate violence in a sustainable way.
Joy Foundation is trying to contribute his part in this big issue in our country. Joy Foundation is working in our poor district of Pakistan where people hardly get education. They did not like to give education to the girls because they think that after a few days girls will get married and go to another house so it is better for her to learn how to work in house. Joy Foundation is trying to change this mentality of people to make girls' lives better and also if the girls are educated they are able to understand their rights. For this we request this project through our friend at GlobalGiving and request to all the partners please support us to make possible for girls to fight their rights.
