The program aims to empower underprivileged domestic worker women in post-conflict communities, by teaching them basic writing, reading, and arithmetic skills. They will be taught by youth volunteers from diverse faiths and members of IYA, as a sign of community service, equality, love and tolerance.
Furthermore, capacity-building workshops will be included in the curriculum: one on women´s rights and the other on small business skills. With this program, IYA not only builds women´s capacities and improves their families’ living conditions, but also provides a platform for women of diverse faiths and volunteer teachers from their communities to develop relationships for future collaboration. 20 diverse volunteer teachers from the local community will educate 70 underprivileged women with basic reading, writing, arithmetic and small business skills in six months at two post-conflict communities: Badami Bagh, Joseph Colong Lahore and Gojra, Faisalabad.
