The Awakening: Empowering Communities for Social Justice
Empowering Communities for Human Rights: The Awakening
Empowering Communities for Human Rights and Gender Equality
In response to the growing demand, “The Awakening” started to conduct more training on women’s rights, gender, sexuality, leadership building and women economic empowerment.
“The Awakening” was founded in 2013 by a group of development professionals from Khyber PakhtunKhwa, Pakistan, working in the field of human rights such as violence against women (VAW), media, democracy, good governance and social justice. Initially “The Awakening” focused on establishing a niche for itself, by starting several path-breaking programmes. “The Awakening” launched various awareness campaigns on issues related to gender, VAW, and human rights, as well as a novel community- based women’s leadership programme in District Swat.
