Blue Veins is a Safe World Field Partner
Blue Veins has a vision of a world where women live healthy, educated, free, and safe lives.
Where equality and dignity is a right, not a privilege. Where women spend their lives creating and thriving, rather than surviving victimization and recovering from atrocities. We envision a world where women and girls enjoy equal protection and fulfillment of their human rights, and share power in directing institutions, guiding communities, and leading societies and nations.
Women and girls shall have full access to the information, resources, training, and employment opportunities they need in order to overcome social, legal and economic barriers, and to participate in decision making, and claiming their human rights
The mission of Blue Veins is to work together in harmony with a higher spirit to improve the quality of life of women and children, and establish a people-centered framework for empowerment, sustainable health, and a social development to guide, build up a culture of cooperation and partnership, and respond to the immediate needs of those who are vulnerable. Blue Veins empowers women to articulate, demand, and access their rights by enhancing women’s leadership and building networks.
Men can play vital roles in helping to reduce and prevent men’s violence against women. Indeed, some men, both individually and in groups and often in partnership with women, are already making a difference. Preventing men’s violence against women will require sustained and systematic efforts in families and relationships, communities, and in society at large. It is time for men to join with women in building a world of non-violence and gender justice.
Blue Veins is engaging CSOs, media, lawyers, religious leaders to create zero tolerance in community about child marriages, Blue Veins is also involved in lobbying and engaging policy makers and legislatures for the standardization of girl’s age of marriage and raising it from 16 to 18.
As a crucial member of our society, a woman has to play several roles. She is a mother, daughter, sister and wife. But before all of that, she is an individual. So, in order to stay strong for herself, she has to become more aware of the risks and problems that surround her. She has to understand her rights better, so that she is able to respond in a better manner.With this belief, Blue Veins was founded by a group of seven enthusiastic women in March, 1999. They were of the view that as women, who affirm the humanity and dignity of all people, we have the responsibility as well as the ability to create a world from which injustice, inequity, inequality, and oppression are gradually eliminated. They were committed to find other like-minded persons who work with us to construct the foundations of a world based on justice and compassion, in which all people can live in peace without fear, or insecurity.
These women wanted to do a lot for the suppressed women of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP). They were discouraged by the lack of information and recourses available to women because of conservative culture and traditions. They took the challenge and raised their voices. They faced many more problems and intimidations than they anticipated, but never lost their hearts and they continued their struggle.
The founders of the Blue Veins believed that every woman, regardless of her status of life, has an inherent right to dignity. To enjoy this dignity, her human rights must be affirmed.
In response with determination, hope and vision, Blue Veins was born. Blue Veins was established on 23 March, 1999.
Today Blue Veins is a growing group of volunteers embracing the motto “Awareness, Action, and Advocacy”.
