“Bring socio-economical change among the life of rural communities”
A message from the President SDO:
It has been my wish since long to work for the rights and empowerment of our local women. Whenever I went through the daily newspapers, I observed women violence ever day. Women were burnt alive and were soled like animals. The imbalanced gender threat found everywhere. It was very panic for me. In this crucial situation I decided to heal up the local women work for their betterment and laid the foundation of SDO. I do not claim that our organization is more enough for resolve all the issues but it is an attempt and a fist step towards the change of the behaviors of masses as to snatch back the forgotten rights of women and to bring them shoulder by shoulder with men. In this regard we came in to contact with various such organization who were our like minded like Shirkatgah, Aurat Foundation etc. SDO provoked the dumped voice of women. Now SDO has become the voice of women of our district. We work with the slogan of “LIVE FOR HUMANITY” I believe that to serve humanity is the noblest way to seek the pleasure of Allah Almighty. This is all that SDO wishes to see the society, but if you also see eye to eye with us then, come forward to strengthen our hands in this change making process.







To give a vision of a gender-balanced society, free from womenMISSIONS OUR Violence, provide them the legal advocacy. To enrich the society with educated mother as future of a developed society. To struggle for the community, Basic Health care, Girls education & Literacy. Rise as sense of Advocacy, Awareness, Educated society, To make SDO a strong and Independent Institute, with ever sustention of its of Culture & Heritage among the peoples, and focus Girls projects.

Protect Environment, Mobilize Youth. Protection and Promotion Education as a tool to end violence against Women.

To make environment healthy to live. To establish women literacy and skill development centers. To take part in the relief activities in the state of emergency and disasters. To provide basic health facilities to the un approached and marginalized part OUR of society.

SDO Flash back
Shikarpur is the Tehsil head quarter of Shikarpur district situated at main National highway; there are various NGOs present along with

various slogans, the lack of an organization yet prevailed. Thus the people from the people like women, the intellectuals, the educators, the dedicated and devoted peoples stepped forward and laid the foundations of a humanitarian organization, named SARTIYOON DEVELOPMENT ORGANIZATION (SDO) SHIKARPUR on 28th April-2005. That was very tough time, nobody was ready to guide them, funds were unavailable, and they started on self-help bases. The days remained very difficult, people’s discouraging behavior shocked them, and they treat them like stranger creature out of the earth. They blamed them and did not allow their daughters and sister to mingle with the SDO member ladies. From then up to this they are working on self-help bases. They faced many issuebased problems, like Karo-Kari, Child Hood-Marriages, thick walls in front of girls’ education and working in the fields without any wages.
