Thespianz Foundation work with CSR

The play, Saba, revolves around a young woman named Saba who wants to fulfill her dream of supporting her ailing father Sultan. However, Saba’s brother Abrar and phupho (paternal aunt) Sakina complicate things for her.

Abrar thinks a woman’s place is in the house and she should serve the men in the family. Abrar and Sakina become the villains in Saba’s life by convincing her father not to let her leave the house or have friends over.

Saba’s story is similar to that of thousands of young Pakistani women who are forced to stay home or are married off at a young age.

Impact:

The campaign sensitized over 12,00 individual family’s male members and they’ve turned their traditional thinking about “controlling females”, moreover, they’ve committed to empower their females by sending them for vocational training and respected jobs.
