Initiative for Females in Balochistan

The literacy rate of women in Balochistan is too low. Only 27% is the literacy rate among women. Cultural barriers have stopped women in the area to grow. However, it prevented girls and women in the region from seeking police help on their own. With the police station run by 19 female cops in Quetta, the provincial capital, authorities trust ladies will want to get to all police administrations. This will help females to document all kinds of cases, including abusive behavior at home and sexual abuse.
