Financial independence for discriminated people

Over 2000 Registered khwajasira

We give marginalised people, vulnerable to exploitation and abuse, a chance to live with dignity.

By donating towards our Khwajasira Support Programme, you’ll be helping a needy and discriminated person find financial independence.

The Khwajasira or transgender (third gender) community in Pakistan is often socially and economically excluded from society. In many cases, they are cut off from their families too. Unable to find work and fend for themselves, often, they have no choice but to beg to survive. This makes them dependent on charity, vulnerable to exploitation and susceptible to abuse.

To help Khwajasira live a life of financial independence and dignity, we run the Akhuwat Khwajasira Support Programme, in collaboration with Fountain House. The programme provides registered Khwajasiras with social and economic support in a number of ways, including, but not limited to the following:

  • Financial support
    • A monthly stipend of Rs. 1200 (£5)
  • Economic rehabilitation
    • Interest-free microfinance loans
    • Financial literacy
    • Training and capacity building
    • Career counselling and employment opportunities
    • Help acquiring identity documents
  • Medical support
  • Psycho-social therapy
  • Community support and peer guidance
