Amjad's Village Project Pakistan

Amjad's Village Project established by Dr Siller in 1993 in the Pakistani province of Punjab, which has in the meanwhile also added a Men's Centre, has many women members and it is generating income for them. The women here work not on full-time basis but in a traditional way so that family and field work is not compromised and festivals of different types, common in villages, can be celebrated as usual. The village Thatta Ghulamka Dhiroka has about 1200 residents. The villagers established the NGO Anjuman-e-Falah-e-Aama in 1991, which co-operates with the DGFK e.V. (German Society for Promotion of Culture). The Anjuman itself co-operates with six further projects in the country. You can find information (including images and videos) about the activities on this blog.
