My name is Jamla . I live in Lohay wali puli Lahore I am a social worker. I was interested in doing something for the marginalized society of our area. I saw that the condition of women in our area is very bad. There was a passion of doing something inside me, but I didn’t know that from where to take first step. When I explore the community more, it comes to know that 95 percent of men and women in my surrounding are deprived of ID cards. I took the lead of said purpose. Because the majority of the area is labor class so it was not easy for them to go to NADRA office daily for the CNIC. They didn’t consider the CNIC worthy full also. I myself did not even understand how to help so that they can easily approach the NADRA office for CNIC. Then one of my friends told me about Bedari which was running a project called She Can Lead and highlighting awareness among the community to bring women’s identity cards. After hearing the project name I felt that I should be part of this program. I joined this program as a member of the Women’s lead group. I got support and opportunity to talk about people’s problems with NADRA officials. Through the MRV I’ve made hundreds of people’s ID cards and this work is still going on. In the present situation if I face any problem regarding CNIC, I go to NADRA Officials and get the solutions at my own. I have been working with Bedari for 3 years. I learned that if we struggle for the collective issue with honestly, we can achieve what we want.
