Thatta Kedona

Culture is a Basic Need

Success of NGOs due to Selflessness

Omar M. Ali

An example of obviously excellent project work is the ThattaKedona project of the Anjuman-e-Falah-e-Aama in the village of Thatta Ghulamka Dhiroke in the district of Okara, Tehsil Gogera. The initiative began in the autumn of 1990 with a visit from Austrian graphic designer S.S. in the village.


The special thing about the project is that it is actually a self-help project, and that outside help was primarily selfless. In the daughter projects (see www. ...) of the ThattaKedona project, this peculiarity is also evident as well: The external participation depends upon whether something is drawn from a project, i.e. portion of the financial success. Comparisons with other projects show that volunteer can be found in projects, but they want (whether they have to, that is the crucial question) to be paid or financed . They give their time, but want to be rewarded! In the projects of S.S. The selflessness prevails, - which is the basis of long-term success. The local management of the NGO also does not live on the income, - a worldwide novelty and rarity in NGOs!

The peculiarity of, let's call it, Senta-Siller-projects, which are designed holistically, is also reflected in the state recognition of these projects by the German government.

Dr. Senta Siller received the Federal Cross of Merit (BVK) for her initiatives in 1996, especially for the Dolls Project, which was also highlighted by the award as the Best UNESCO Project in Asia.

Dr Karola Groch has continued the work of Dr Leila Masson (Kitchen garden, use of traditional remedies) for many years, she received the BVK through her work in the health station of the NGO in 2010.

For many years, Monika Kuppler conducted her ceramic program at the Women's Center of the NGO and received the BVK in 2016, as did Renate Perner for her work in the Children's Club.

S.S., K.G., M.K., R.P. and other volunteers of the Pakistan project described here also worked in the subsidiary projects of the Pakistani NGO in Cameroon, Colombia, etc.
