And on that answers we prepared a report.which is as
following.
Vision and mision of the foundation

Vision:

with dignity and self-reliance.

Mission:

Inequility of women in KPK:


As we all know that women are treated differently in
all parts of the world because of the fact that they are
women and cannot perform the duties of men.in
Pakistan and especially in KPK this inequality is very
high.

 Khyber Pakhtunkhwa has always been in the


forefront when it comes to gender inequality.
 The society in KPK is tradition-bound and is male
dominated.
 The literacy rate in KPK is 0.49 percent.

 Women suffer in silence, but compared to the rest


of Pakistan, women in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK)
suffer domestic violence in greater proportions
 Pashtun women are much more likely to be
subjected to such violence than other women in
Pakistan.
The recently released findings from the 2012-13
Pakistan Demographic and Health Survey*, which
was conducted by various government agencies
and funded by the USAID, sheds light on the living
conditions of ever-married women between the
ages of 15 and 49. The survey, a third of its kind in
Pakistan, interviewed 13,558 women from a
random and nationally representative sample of
14,000 households. A relatively smaller sample of
ever-married men between the ages of 15 and 49
were also interviewed. The survey also collected
information from a subsample of 3,687 women
about domestic violence, which included several
manifestation of physical aggression including
“hitting, kicking, biting, shoving, restraining,
slapping, or throwing objects” and other “sexual
and emotional abuse, controlling or domineering
behaviours, intimidation, stalking, and passive or
covert abuse.” The survey paints a dismal picture of
women’s welfare across Pakistan, but more so of
the women in KPK and Balochistan.

In Rural Areas of KPK:

In rural areas the rate of inequality is high as compared


to other parts of KPK.
1. Honour Killings:
Honour killings is on top list in rural
areas.women is murdered without noticing the real
reason .

2. Forced Marriages :
Forced marriages is also on top list in rural
areas.At the age of 18 the women is forced to
marriage without considering the opinion of bride.

3. Education :
The residents of rural areas think that giving
education to a women is useless.They think that
educating a girl will change her mind because
women are forced to stay home to clean and cook.

There are also many other reasons by which the rate of


discrimination is higher in rural areas.
 Unlike education, income suggested a non-linear
association with domestic violence. Women
belonging to middle classes were more likely to
report domestic violence than women from low-
income or affluent households. Women in the
second income quintile were three-times more
likely to report frequent domestic violence than
those belonging to the lowest income quintile. As
expected, women in the highest income quintile
were the least likely to report domestic violence.

 The physical violence against women by their


spouses is often a result of various deep-rooted
psychological and other behavioural challenges.
Again, such troubling behaviours are more
prevalent among men in KPK and Balochistan than
in other parts of Pakistan. For instance, one in two
women in KPK reported that their husbands would
get angry or jealous if the women were to speak
with other men. Only one in five women in Punjab
and Sindh reported the same. Whereas 14 per cent
of women in Punjab reported that their husbands
wanted to keep track of them at all times, 30 per
cent women in KPK and 32 per cent in Balochistan
reported the same.
