MEHERGARH CENTERThe Center, Mehergarh, Principally focuses on creating a critical mass of young people who are committed to develop responsible citizenry, progressive leadership and an impetus for collective action. Our approach is embedded in rediscovering and owning the depth and breadth of our diverse culture, which is thousands of years old.
MOVEMENT AGAINST SEXUAL HARASSMENTMehergarh remained the secretariat and the hub for AASHA(Alliance Against Sexual harassment) over several years. With other AASHA members it succeeded in getting the anti-sexual harassment passed in 2010.
PROMOTING AND STRENGTHENING DEMOCRACYThis is a common strand that runs through all Mehergarh Programs, whether it is youth training or campaign against bonded labor or even anti-sexual harassment responsibilities; the power that the system gives to the people and how to use that power.
ADVOCAY FOR WOMEN'S LEGISLATIONThe successful AASHA movement and setting up the precedent of public, private partnership culminates into the passage of anti-sexual harassment legislation, Although Mehergarh has been engaged with systematic legal advocacy around women’s legislation, this success was the impetus to organize the legal and Advocacy Unit as a specialized effort to the draft advocate for pro women legislation.
PROGRAM AGAINST BONDED LABOURBonded labour or slavery is one of the most deploring human rights violations. This program has made major breakthrough in the past. It mostly focuses on the bonded labour in south Sindh where the social hierarchy of major land owners and their poor tenants lead to not only control over their livelihood but also on their livelihoods, movements and every aspects of life.
PROMOTING CULTURAL ACTIONS FOR CHANGEWe believe that through theater, songs, music and storytelling we can bring about effective and more sustainable change in people’s thinking than through intellectual debate. South Asia is still an oral culture especially in rural areas.
PROMOTING PEACE AND PLURALISMThis program is designed to understand and counter the rowing trends of intolerance in our society. It explores the underlying patterns and dynamics of pluralism in the context of Pakistan and evolves short and long term initiatives for strengthening it.
YOUTH LEADERSHIP AND ACTIVISMThis program focuses on developing leadership qualities in young men and women who are interested to be at the forefront of Pakistan’s social movement in future. These youth undergo rigorous training to undo their biases created through their normal socialization process.
