Special Attention towards the
Handicapped (SATH) is a non-profit organization working with PWDs. Our work is accomplished
through a community based rehabilitation program. PWDs are frequently neglected in Pakistan. All our work takes place in marginalized communities in both rural and suburban areas Our work began in
the year 2000, and we have grown as resource allowed ever since.
Our mission is to further promote the aims of our
organization and the particular members to the community we support. We strive to make a difference by educating the public
and expanding the extent of our influence. Due to a lack of public awareness, and the lack of resources to challenge this
with, we frequently find that parents are uncertain how to respond to the arrival of a PWDs. This challenge can be compounded
by a similar lack of awareness and training in the community.
Our organization works by building the
confidence of the PWDs we work. We encourage the development of the educational and vocational skills most relevant to
each member and exploring the possibilities these offer for the development of future careers. We believe in developing an
individual’s inherent gifts to enable self-sufficiency wherever possible.
As resources allow we seek to widen our membership, allowing SATH’s
influence in the local community to grow and expand. We want to have fun while we are working on projects together. We believe
that developing relationships and friendships is an important aspect of developing participants’ ownership of the organization.
