"Parveen Saeed got this idea of Khana Ghar after she heard of an incident that a mother killed their children cause she wasn't able to see them starve to death. This incident made her hit in her mind to start this Khana Ghar."
Today I would like to share another amazing woman story with my Global Community. Parveen Saeed A Social Entrepreneur and inspiration for many.
At a time when Pakistan is facing countless problems, there are people who are silently working for the betterment of the motherland. These devoted Pakistanis are working towards accomplishment of their goal to bring Pakistan out of the shadows. These are the people who are striving to change perceptions regarding Pakistan from a terrorism stricken Pakistan to an inspiring Pakistan. Despite of all the pessimism prevailing there are some Pakistanis that are still highly motivated and are contributing towards welfare of the state in their individual capacity. Their spirits are high and they are certain that they can be the positive change agents for the country.
When most of the world shows the darker side of Pakistan it forgets to mention heroics like Parveen Saeed. Parveen Saeed is a simple Pakistani who aims to reduce the problems Pakistan is facing today. She is a woman of substance who is serving the country in her best capacity for last 23 years. Parveen Saeed is the face of a brighter Pakistan, positive Pakistan and a Pakistan remains hidden from the world.
Love for her country and the spirit to serve descended to Parveen from her parents. Acknowledging that hunger is the root cause of many evils across the globe, Parveen Saeed runs “Khana Ghar” to reduce this problem in Pakistan. “Khana Ghar” serves the poor with healthy food in just 3 rupees. Foundation of Khana Ghar was laid after Parveen Saeed witnessed a dreadful incident in her vicinity when a mother killed her three children because she was unable to feed them for three days.
To prove that hunger is not greater than mother’s love, to ensure that rate of such vices fall and to promote the brighter image of Pakistan Parveen Saeed and her team is working day and night. Not only this, but Khana Ghar is also a source of employment and morale booster for many people. People come there, work, earn their living and feed their families.
She is covered by many media channels and specially covered by BBC for her noble cause of feeding the poor. Link is here for her complete story. https://www.bbc.com/news/av/world-south-asia-15393516/parveen-saeed-s-qu...
