Shaheen I-Tech Lab

What are we trying to do?

In the rural regions of Pakistan, only 1.3% of houses have internet access. This combined with socio-economic and gender issues leave rural women the most isolated from internet access in the country. Social barriers constraint women and restrict them from mobility in the public space, limiting their opportunities for education, employment or general autonomy of women. This organization utilizes the internet as a tool to empower women because it has become crucial in a more connected world due to the internets unique ability to break down barriers of distance, and allow people to instantly exchange information and ideas that can transform their and others way of life. They are able to become involved in the social, economic, and political development of their countries, and the world at large.

Ways to help

This project can only continue to run with the publics support. There are many ways to help and get involved. One of the best ways to help is to show your support and donate to the organization. We need more funds to pay the bills of the facility such as internet bills, generator bills, teachers pay, etc. As we receive more funds, we are able to make the tech lab a more comfortable and inviting space for the women with more computers and more educational resources. Another great way to help is to spread the word. Spread the word about the project!
