Understanding the need of Christian Women Empowerment
Women consist of more than 50 percent of population in Pakistan. Because of the discrimination and hatred of Muslims towards Christians many males are not able to get good jobs to sustain their families. In order to survive both Christian male and females have to work to earn their living hood. So, the females in the family have to leave the safe zones, and kids in home alone with grandparents to find a job. Christian women fall into lifetime careers as sewer cleaners, domestic servants or brick kiln workers. Payments for these positions are painfully low, or at times non-existent. Some employers give payment loans ahead to trap minority women, preventing them from ever paying the loans back as they continue to work for free on wheels of never-ending debt bondage
According to the Movement for Solidarity and Peace, a human rights organization in the country, around 1,000 Christian and Hindu girls and women are kidnapped each year, forced to convert and marry Muslim men. The victims are usually girls and women between the ages of 12 and 25.
