Community World Service Asia works with rural, disaster prone communities in Sindh to improve their disaster resilience through trainings, awareness and other capacity building initiatives. We focus on raising awareness on Disaster Risk Reduction among women, men, boys and girls to enable them to respond effectively to future emergencies. We do this not only to reduce the level of vulnerable groups in any disaster but also promote a level of sustainability.

Trainings on DRR are imparted through the use of a Mobile Knowledge Resource Centre (MKRC), a training vehicle for disaster preparedness, which uses simulation models and hands-on group activities to engage students, youth and community members.

Dissemination of other informational material such as posters, videos on DRR and implementing practical evacuations and exercises in schools in rural Sindh are among the resilience building activities we engage children and youth groups in. These videos on DRR are part of our Resilience Building campaign shown to children and youth groups in vulnerable and disaster prone rural areas of Pakistan.

International Literacy Day (ILD), celebrated annually on September 8, shines a spotlight on global literacy needs. It celebrates and honors the five decades of national and international engagement, efforts and progress made to increase literacy rates around the world. Access to quality education has become increasingly difficult for marginalized communities in certain regions due to continuing instability and inequality.

We at, Community World Service Asia, strongly believe in the three pillars of quality education: Quality teaching; Quality tools for teaching and learning  and Quality environment for teaching and learning. And this is what we are celebrating and promoting this year on International Literacy Day. Through our Girls Education and Transformative Learning Project, we are investing in resources to educate children, youth, and teachers, our initiatives aim to develop skills, raise awareness and build the capacity of communities. Community World Service Asia strives to meet the contextual needs of different communities in order to support children to realize their right to education and their potential.

The brief video showcases the capacity building of teachers for a #SmartPlanet.

Today on World Humanitarian Day, we express strong solidarity with the selfless aid workers and civilians who are caught in conflicts and natural hazard emergencies. 2017 aims to reaffirm that the civilians, aid workers and social workers caught in conflict are #NotATarget.

We, at Community World Service Asia, salute the humanitarian workers and communities who strive to help people and work towards upholding human rights and human dignity.

Community World Service Asia organized a Crafts Festival to promote the handicrafts produced by rural women artisans of Sindh and to introduce Taanka, a brand launched to retail handcrafted products of women artisans from Sindh to national and international urban buyers.  The festival was celebrated on November 26-17, 2016 at Dolmen Mall, Clifton in Karachi. It was attended by a large number of people who appreciated and praised the exquisite range of products made by the artisans of Thatta and Umerkot.

A silent revolution is underway deep inside Sindh province; one that is turning the fortunes of local artisans around. World renowned for their aesthetic mastery, Sindhi women artisans are now seeing their intricately crafted products showcased at one of the top fashion platforms in the country.

“From the Desert to the Ramp” is a short documentary developed by Community World Service Asia and PLUM Media Tank  with support from the Danish Centre of Culture and Development showcasing the transformative journey of rural artisan women becoming the hands and heart of an urban fashion brand.
