Our Projects

1: Beauty Salon Training Center 

We have been giving free training since 2012, during the six month course we teach them Bridal Makeup, Party Make up, Hair dressing, Hena, Nail art and different types of facials.

During the last three and a half years we have taught this art to 160 girls, who are now working in small beauty salons in their homes. Some of them are working in big beauty salons and making a good living to support themselves and their families, which is what we hope for.

2: Stitching Course

We are providing free stitching courses to the women. During this 6 months course, we teach them to stitch all kinds of dresses for males, females and children. After becoming tailors they sew clothes for a trade and can afford to save and provide for their family.

3:Computer Courses

We provide computer courses to some women whose families don’t even allow them to watch TV. They have a limited knowledge of the world at large, but by allowing them access to the internet we liberate their minds. We think an online education is the fastest easiest way to train women and bring real change to our community. 11084176_674243332703060_8248315150143003787_o

4:School/ Academy

We have taught girls for free at our school since 1997. We currently have one hundred students trying to learn in the open yard. Our school has been here for 17 years and we have taught over 600 girls since its opening. Some of them are nurses, teachers and some are going to join the Pak Army and Police Department. Many have since become healthy and educated mothers.

We teach different art forms to our students, so they learn to describe their feelings through drawing. Our friend Malee Kenworthy teaches them this art online from America.

6:Self Defense Techniques 

We teach self defense techniques to our girls because our society constantly tells our women they are weak and useless. Society teaches them that they need a man to protect them. We want our girls to know they strong and can protect themselves from assault and abuse. We want to end violence against women.

7: Library 

At Zeph Education we have a small library where women read books on different subjects, especially ones related to women’s issues. By reading an hour a day the women learn about their civil rights, healthcare and how to live a healthy abuse free lifestyle.

10: English language Learning Course

We know much of the world’s knowledge is preserved in the English language and that business is transacted in English, so we teach it as a subject. Many of our online classes are taught in English so its very important that our women learn the language.
