SAP-Pakistan is not just an organization rather it in itself is an institution and a platform for women, minority, youth and all marginalized segments of Pakistani society. It is here where they can utilize their skills and enhance their capacities and in fact their full human potential. We are strongly of this opinion and put special emphasis to motivate women, youth and the said segments to empower themselves socially, economically and politically so that they can play productive role in the nation building. We believe that self-initiative is the most important part of true development. SAP-Pakistan since its inception ensured participation of women, youth and all unprivileged in all its interventions and works that ultimately lead to a common goal, which is the development of the country and all human beings living in it as a nation. Despite all barriers we as a civil society of Pakistan and as a human development organization are continuing our efforts and journey believing that ultimately it will pay off what we expect. We also value and support all such positives steps whenever taken by every government in Pakistan the prime object of which remained human development. We care about our team and capitalize their wisdom and advancement. We rely in a nation where we assist each other for the betterment of humanity. SAP-Pakistan just aims to construct an environment which augments about justice and equality.
