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.

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.

Capacity Building Program

Capacity building of Community

It is quite noteworthy information that participation of women in the meetings and trainings is gradually increasing as compared to that time when this project was started, women showing keen interest in this project, when they attend our program, they also stimulate to others to attend our program which is the good sign of achievement.

The achievements made so far will definitely further strengthen the women and ultimately will empower the women.

Men and women are important constituents of any society. No society can prosper unless men and women are given equal opportunity for progress and development. For keeping a healthy balance in society women need to be given importance. One woman creates one family and this is how a prosperous and civilized nation comes into existence.

DAMAN stands by these Thari women for creating new paths for being self reliant and dignity they deserve and that is due right of every women in the state.
