Women's Day Celebration

Faisal Idress is a young Active Citizen who is diligently working in Multan for the betterment of community and its people. Here's what he has to say about his latest SAP:

"We selected 20 talented boys from our Jagoo Pakistan group to learn acting and requested AASSAN Foundation, CHANNAN Development, RASTI, and AJOCA theatre to give us training in acting. We also requested them to educate us about the basics of drama acting.

Hence, the director of AASSAN Foundation who is trained from Philippine, and Mr. Roufi, chairman RASTI, gave us a drama training for three days.

After this training, our theatre team (Jagoo Drama Club) acted in SPO office hall. They acted on a drama which was based on Feudalism, Karo Kari and Women Empowerment. The drama was "PARADISE KILLER" which was watched by 250 people. I must confess, we didn't know that 8th March is the Women's Day. Therefore, the people who watched the drama suggested that we should do something similar on 8th March too. But, we had already planned to lit 700 candles on Women's Day and would like to deliver a lecture. The purpose of this meeting was to raise awareness what Islam says about the women's rights.

We lit 700 candles with the help of Jagoo youth group members. We displayed the number "100" to show the completion of 100 years of Women's Right Day. We promised to bring the women forward from ignorance and darkness.

Thus, we started visiting different schools and colleges to deliver lectures on Women's rights and at the end of the day, we would gather to lit candles to make this activity a memorable one. We made a promise to practise Women's right under Islamic and society role."
