Ravadar aims to decrease the intersectional marginalization of religious minorities in Pakistan. We seek to promote freedom of religion or belief in economically deprived and socially discriminated minority communities. We engage and build capacities of community leaders, activists, and mobilizers and entrust them with available resources and our vital support to identify the most crucial developmental need of their community and implement innovative and scalable solutions in a sustainable manner. By forming Ravadar committees of locally active and dedicated community workers we uplift the religious minorities in Pakistan through communal inclusiveness, ownership, and leadership.
Ravadar, as a blog series, documents real-life stories and struggles of religious minorities in Pakistan. Launched in 2020, this unique digital platform advocates the freedom of religious belief (FoRB) for all communities across the country. It keeps a keen eye on the intersection of gender, class, and religious orientation while discussing marginalization faced by minorities.
During the pandemic COVID-19, Ravadar worked rigorously to make the voices of religious minorities heard both at home and beyond. The blogs published on Ravadar make it to the media and policy-making corridors, ensuring the plight of minorities does not remain invisible.
If you belong to a religious minority or want to contribute we would love for you to get in touch!
