By empowering the marginalised segments of the society SEHER aims to help build a prosperous Pakistan free from violence.

SEHER uses a rigorous approach in analyzing aspects that contribute to oppression, injustice, violence, vulnerability, discrimination, abuse and poverty in the society while treating the survivors as subjects of the change process.
