Community Organization for People Empowerment (COPE Pakistan) is a non-political, non-profit, and non-sectarian organization. It is registered under the Society Act of 1860 of Pakistan. They tackle domestic violence against women in the Okara district, as well as run a peacebuilding education program in collaboration with 12 schools with students from different faiths, in an attempt to get education in four target areas. They have celebrated national and international days like International Day of Peace, Women’s Day, International Day Against Domestic Violence Against Women, and International Day Against Child Labor. COPE Pakistan has also celebrated Iftar and Eid Milan parties with Muslims, and Christmas with different faith groups.
COPE Pakistan emerged to change the plight of women and children in a society where women feel insecure and have no freedom of expression. COPE Pakistan, as a Cooperation Circle (CC), strives to help women develop themselves without any social and economic obstacles. Pakistan is a land of people who have longed and struggled for peace and non-violent culture. COPE Pakistan is establishing connections among different sects and religions to promote sustainable peace and social harmony. COPE Pakistan is working hard to bring visible change in the lives of women and children through rights-based and developmental initiatives. It has a special focus on uniting women and raising their voices against an unjust structure, and decreasing prejudice against women and religious minorities. COPE Pakistan has strong relationships and networking with other like-minded NGOs to perform collective efforts to achieve its objectives and goals.
