Sujag Sansar Organization: Sujag= conscious= Sansar=world. Thus Sujag Sansar stands for a conscious and aware world.  Sujag team since its formation in January 2005,  is struggling with communities to curb extremists and conservative tendencies among the communities who lagged behind and did not catch up with the fast progressing world. SSO encourages and promotes good old values of unmatched hospitality and togetherness of the Sindhi culture and strongly stands against the outdated and cruel practice of honor killings, child marriages, forced marriages and other kinds of violence against women and gender discrimination.  SSO aspire free speech and resists forces that impose their ideologies on the passive and oppressed segments of the local society.

Sujag Sansar started project titled “help end child marriages in Pakistan” with the support of Catapult organization, an online funding platform in 2013.  The efforts was started in those area of Dadu District where SSO during its previous work on child marriages could not reached out.

Through this project, key stakeholders i.e. performers of marriages rituals, faith leaders, journalists, village communities and others were involved in awareness, advocacy activities. IEC material, print and electronic as well as social media were engaged and utilized for creating momentum against child marriages. Theater tool proved very effective tool in creating awareness in rural community with limited literacy.  The village committees were formed and mobilized to play their part in preventing child marriages in their area and coordinating and reporting planned child marriages to concerned government departments and media.
