Begum Perveen Sarwar, the wife of Governor Punjab, has announced the establishment of ‘’HunarGah” to provide free skills training to transgenders and special children.

A plan of action has also been prepared to expedite the initiatives under the “One Vision four Goals” to provide clean drinking water, health and education facilities to the people and to promote tree plantation.

Speaking to the media on Saturday, Begum Perveen Sarwar, the wife of Governor Punjab, Chairperson of Sarwar Foundation and Founder HunarGah, said that transgenders and special children deserve our special attention.

Sarwar Foundation HunarGah (free skills training centres) are being set up at Faisalabad and Lahore where they will receive free skills training so that they can earn their livelihoods with dignity.

Begum Perveen Sarwar said that we have started a program called One Vision Four Goals in collaboration with Punjab Aab-e-Pak Authority, TEVTA, Islamic Aid, Sarwar Foundation and Afaq with the sole mission of serving Humanity.

In the first phase, two filtration plants have been inaugurated in Sargodha from where thousands of people will be able to get clean drinking water daily.

The closed filtration plants in many other areas of Punjab will also be handed over to Islamic Aid after restoration by Punjab Aab e Pak Authority, she added.

Begum Perveen Sarwar said that the different NGOs under One Vision Four Goals will work together for the provision of basic facilities of health, education, safe drinking water to the public especially in rural areas.

She further added that free medical camps will be organised in different areas and skills training schools will be set up with the collaboration of TEVTA to uplift the underprivileged sections of population.

Begum Perveen Sarwar said that the mission of my life is to serve my people. Each one of us has the responsibility and moral obligation to help our brothers and sisters in need, she added.
