Who we are?

The persons with disability at Sialkot determined not to allow their physical shortcomings to impede moving forward in life with dignity, have resolved to work for the persons like them. They have founded an organization, Safia Foundation. The society wants to prove with action that the Persons with Disabilities can be assets for the people around them, rather than a liability and burden. When Safia Foundation was in a beginning process there are so many financial and moral hurdles, some people are very much negative about the main idea of this foundation which states that “Disables can live independently” people were not ready to accept that idea of independence about disabled. But Miss Shamsa Kanwal (Chair Person) took a very firm and brave decision to promote and launch this concept of independent living of disabled persons, she herself is partially blind but she did not make it a hurdle she launched Safia Foundation in December. 2012 and start awareness at very initial level because of her hard work and dedication people who were discouraging the idea of independent life of disables start listening and then somehow become positive about it.
