Introduction

Back Ground:

Human Development is a far cry without realization of human rights. The 1948 Universal Declaration of human rights asserts that “Everyone has the right to standard of living adequate for health and well being of health and well being of himself and his family, including food, clothing housing, medical care and necessary social services. Everyone has the right…. to education….to work….and to social security..”. International human rights convents require all member countries to ensure that basic human rights of its entire citizen are protected irrespective of their religion, cast, creed or capabilities. The basic human right frame work therefore shuns the neo-liberal market centered approach; which allocates the state’s on the basis of their economic returns.

 

In case of Pakistan, policy making generally followed a market centered pro-growth approach during the last 50 years, and has conveniently overlooked state responsibility to fulfill the rights of vulnerable communities including the physically disable challenged population. Rights of disable people have been ignored for decades and consequently they seldom get any opportunity to live meaningful lives. Person who become disabled due to some disease or who are born disabled, are either dependent on their family members become beggars. There are few opportunities for them to get education and acquire employable skills.

 

In district Karak the ratio of special person was 47 %, .there was acute shortage of doctors and medical felicities especially in the field of rehabilitation of special persons. There was no facility of rehabilitation in District Karak.. Therefore the situation demands a local mechanism to support special person for longer period of time in order to rehabilitate them and integrate them into society. This demand for rehabilitation of special persons gives birth to Sheen Ghar Association, Initiative for Raising Awareness, Development and Assimilation of the Handicapped.

Capabilities approach in forms the conceptualization of Sheen Ghar Association in its dealing with the vulnerable population and their rehabilitation and development.
