TDEA in collaboration with United States Department of State Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labour (DRL) is implementing a 20-month project on “Promoting the Human Rights and Electoral Participation of People with Disabilities (PWD), Transgender People, and Women in Pakistan,” in anticipation of General Elections anticipated in August 2018.

The aim of this project is to address the concerns and rights of PWDs and transgender people which have not previously been the focus of election observation in Pakistan, and women’s rights in elections remain imperfectly realized. Under this project, 15 CSO’s dedicated to the rights of these populations have formed Coalition for Inclusive Pakistan, (CIP) to achieve their human rights through greater participation in electoral processes.
