SARTY

Umerkot, Pakistan
Joined May 2018

We work in Goth Wali Muhammad in the Umerkot District of Sindh, Pakistan. We organize training and conduct workshops along with advocating for legal change to fight gender violence.

Presence in: Pakistan
Focus: Community / Customary Land Rights, Education, Family, Gender-based violence, Governance, Health, Peace-building, Women's Rights

We deal with educating women not only so they could find basic means of living on their own but also tell them about their rights, including health and political participation. We fight against barbaric practices of FGM and child marriages in the villages and organize rallies and take our activism to the district offices in bringing a legal change into the system.

I was born and raised in an area of Sindh, Pakistan that is still not visible on Google Earth. Being raised in a family that believes in the engineering degrees of men and reproductive abilities of women, I was also not sent to school just like any other girl in my village. However, all of us would organize small study circles and come together to discuss on every issue under the sky and beyond. These circles eventually started to gain momentum in other parts of the village and today it is an established small scale organization (known as SARTY) that deals with the educational, health and political rights of rural women. We are a big advocacy group that is trying to making legal changes in the district government in eradicating the gender violence. I want to join the network so I could be around the people who are doing their part in making this world a bit better than they found it.
Varsha Thebo is the network champion (main point of contact) for SARTY.
