Labours Day Celebration

DAMAN, for showing solidarity with labour, to discuss, appreciate and slam the labour related issues celebrated International Labour Day on 1st May-2016, at Hyderabad and arranged a walk in favour of peasant/labour from Old Campus to Press Club Hyderabad. And to show unity and cohesion with victims of human rights around the world and to condemn inhuman acts, violence, attack and assaulting of innocent humans, a walk on International Human Rights Day was arranged at Nangarparkar and the day was also celebrated at Rasani-Jo-Wandio Nangarparkar on 10th of December-2016. 

Death Anniversary of Amar Rooplo Kolhi celebrated

For making aware the targeted community about the sacrifices and contributions of their heroes and folk-men, DAMAN celebrated the 157th death anniversary of Amar Shaheed Rooplo Kolhi on 22th August-2015, at Nangarpakar, Tharparkar. The activity was organized to pay tribute to the freedom fighter and recalling the chapter history of the era 1859, and to make aware the people of the community about their sacrifices for the homeland and for the community.

Through this event, the targeted community was made aware about history of their hero and realized the value and importance of such celebrities in changing mindset of the future-generations.


Education plays pivotal role for making community progressive and proactive, through education they develop the sense of understanding and responsibilities to come out of occurred problems moreover, natural calamities such as, drought which is common in the areas can be turned into better opportunities. Nagarparkar taluka is deprived of amenities and commodities. Lack of education and low literacy ratio of girls has put strong roots in the region.

DAMAN has set 5 primary schools by partnering with local community for giving these poor communities better options and access for their upcoming generation by ensuring more enrollments in schools so that they can easily meet the challenges they encounter in their regular life.

DAMAN also generates strong ideas for imparting crucial and quality education with the help of teachers committees and parents committees which have been formed and made operational for getting successful results from schools.

Several workshops were conducted on the importance of education, especially educating girl children in the program area, which brought fruitful results. Thought of parents have been changed from destructive to constructive way towards education. In this regard, several boys and girls were enrolled after conducting awareness workshop on education. This is very difficult for the parents to pay fees of their children as the villagers have been living below the line of poverty. Due to this, education of their children is stopped. In this connection, DAMAN has been planning to implement any project which can help to continue their education.
