JAAG intends to weaken the very foundations of inequality, injustice and poverty by mobilizing and organizing women for equal land rights, active political participation, economic empowerment and eradication of discrimination and violence against women in which the Child Marriages/forced marriages are common in the area.

Women Empowerment

We are supporting and strengthening women's organizations and networks to facilitate their collective voice against discriminatory and oppressive laws and traditions such as Child Marriages and women’s inheritance Rights. Skill Development  We will focus on strengthening and supporting community initiatives to access and use basic social services and Rights such as health, education, water, vocational skills and control over assets. Efforts will be made to increase and streamline women's political participation and effective engagement in the decision making processes at local, Regional and national levels.

Governance / Advocacy

JAAG attempts to organize poor and marginalized communities especially Older People to generate counterbalancing power and enable them to demand accountability and transparency of public institutions while effectively participating in governance and policy making processes.

Empower 100 Child Brides

Today     the     devastating     impact     of     child marriage      continues      to      be      ignored      in Pakistan.   Millions   of   child   brides,   some   only just     past     puberty,     are     denied     access     to health,          education          and          economic opportunities.     The     majority     of     them     are burdened   with   the   roles   and   responsibilities of    wives    and    mothers    without    adequate support,     resources     or     capabilities.     This project    will    benefit    200,000    girls    in    Punjab indirectly   by   law   &   policy   reforms   and   100 child    brides    directly    to    delay    first    birth    to save life.

Gender injustice is the major root cause of different forms of violence against women especially against rural poor. Among other factors, forced marriages and conflicts over issues related to women's property/inheritance rights are closely linked with broader issues of violence against women and their social and economic empowerment. The incidence of violence is very common and not tackling under government initiatives. Mobile Crises Unit will respond to phone calls in 3 District of South Punjab.
