Summary Established in 1999, The International Network for the Rights of Female Victims of Violence in Pakistan (INRFVVP) this registered non-profit, non-governmental organization strives to be an effective body able to mobilise and channel resources to help girls and women in Pakistan who have become victims of violence or are vunerable to it. It works to create an heightened worldwide awareness of the degree and nature of the violence being done to girls and women in Pakistan. Recognizing the fact that female victims of violence, most of whom are poor and illiterate, are not able to change their situation without the assistance of the international community, the INRFVVP will seek the help of agencies and persons engaged in collaborative efforts to secure the rights of people who are seriously disadvantaged in the societies in which they live.
