Pakistan International Human Rights
Some time back in 2007, some like-minded citizens, having roots in various NGO’s and sublime purpose in mind, created Pakistan International Human Rights Commission (PIHRC) as an independent non-profit, non- political and non-governmental organization with the aim of protecting and promoting human Rights (particular emphasis on the vulnerable groups like women, children & refugees), health care (by waging war against HIV/AIDS and drug abuse), promotion basic primary education (with emphasis on girls and computer education), and environment protection and preservation. All this was not an easy task, but with the commitment and active support of our members we have achieved a tremendous success in establishing strong linkages with local communities at the grass-root level, creating awareness about their rights and empowering them politically and economically. PIHRC is promoting a unique holistic approach, combining Human Rights Advocacy with physical development initiative. By adopting this approach, PIHRC has achieved tremendous results, particularly in the most backward areas of the country like federally Administered Tribal Areas of Pakistan, without getting a single penny from any donor agency. Rather our members supported our initiatives with the help of the local communities, we are serving.
