Many transgenders are thrown out of home by their families, denied jobs, and forced into the line of sex work, begging, or dancing at weddings to make ends meet.

There is no schooling facility; they are in the highest level of victimization based on their sexual orientation and gender expression.

The agenda is to raise those children in a safe environment and in an atmosphere of happiness, love, guidance and understanding! From a child’s physical and mental development, they require care in regard to physical, mental, moral and social development.

The school aims at making transgender eligible for taking decent jobs, living a dignified life and prompts their statuses in society in a good manner.

Support the organization to implement this idea and help to improve lives of transgender in Pakistan.
