Sehberg Center / SC (for Women and Children)

Located in the rural area of Mohra Moradu, SC is approximately one hour’s drive from Islamabad and half an hour’s drive both from Taxila and Haripur. SC aims to become a rural resource centre for women and youth who can gather here to learn, discuss, plan and implement initiatives in Health, Education and Livelihood. At institutional level, SC establishes a network of health and education facilities in rural area and providing them with a platform for joint learning initiatives and dissemination of knowledge on rural best practices. The Center also hopes to contribute to policy making for rural areas in all three fields. + Show More

The reason for selecting this area is its close proximity to Islamabad while still retaining all the geographical and cultural characteristics of a rural area in Pakistan. The Center is located amidst an immigrant colony consisting mostly of Pathans who have shifted from disturbed areas of KP because of security and economic reasons. SC therefore is ideally located to serve the marginalized and socioeconomically disadvantaged sector of the society and at the same time provide them with a safe and secure center point for learning from each other as well as from the available resources.

Later a pavilion was added where children gathered on weekends for storytelling, poems, songs and general knowledge sessions. This same pavilion became a platform for showcasing their talents in music, drama, Qiraat, poetry etc.

In 2013, a group of 25 children enrolled in an out of school children program which was started in partnership with New Century Education (NCE) and National Institute for Research in Education (NIRE) for a two year program which will bring them up to par with primary class students.

A state of the art building equipped with latest audio visual aids has been constructed at Mohra Moradu to provide a safe and healthy environment for women and children to learn and become empowered to improve the quality of their lives.
