Women outnumber men in Pakistan and are a big human resource but the current plight of the country shows that we are lagging way behind to empower the bigger part of our society. The gateway to a collective development and individual success is only through education and income generation. Keeping in view the prevailing scenario RIDA program was designed and launched in 2012 with the purpose to;
- Provide educational opportunities where there is no access to education.
- Raise awareness about personal development, social issues and life skills.
- Impart income-generating skills to women/girls in need, enabling them to sustain their livelihood
RIDA aims to encourage candidates aspiring to improve their lives with the vision that education and economic stability helps women earn a place for themselves in their downtrodden families.
RIDA by design focuses on the following aspects:
“Since 2012 RIDA has benefited over 20000 girls/women through its facilities and awareness raising campaigns.”
Women and girls are empowered when they are able to access the opportunities available to them without limitations and restrictions such as in education and profession and RIDA strives for this. RIDA needs the support of philanthropists and donors to expand the actions of raising the status of women through education, raising awareness, literacy, training and skills.
