UVAS project: The University of Veterinary and Animal Sciences on Friday launched a civic engagement project for welfare of the farming community on its Ravi Campus, Pattoki.

Chairing the inaugural ceremony, Vice-Chancellor Prof Dr Talat Naseer Pasha said this project was a great learning opportunity for DVM final year students to work with the farming community and get hands-on extension skills. He urged the project officials to involve more girl students in this civic engagement so the entire family of farmers could be easily approached for extension work.

He advised the participating students to not only vaccinate and de-worm animals besides disseminating information to farmers but also study socio-economic system of the farming community. He also sought suggestions from students after completing their project duration for developing curriculum regarding civic engagement.

HEC, British universities join hands for research on women's empowerment
Islamabad: Under the facilitation of Higher Education Commission (HEC), Pakistani universities are collaborating with leading British universities to undertake joint research projects on women's empowerment, gender justice and other issues.

Royal Holloway College of University of London and Bahauddin Zakariya University, Multan, Pakistan, have undertaken a joint research project for women's empowerment in South Punjab under the International Strategic Partnerships in Research and Education (Inspire) Programme.

This project named 'Women Empowerment and the Crisis of Good Governance in South Punjab' is helping to evaluate the performance of local government institutions and parallel power structures to see how far the status of women has been bolstered and whether their lot has improved since the substantial representation in political institutions was offered to women in 2001.

The researchers are working with non-governmental agencies operating in the area so that the academic output can be translated into practical results. Training and capacity building is a major output and five optional courses are being developed by faculty from Bradford University. Pakistani university faculty is implementing gender research and getting trained through exchange programmes with the Royal Holloway College.

This is helping in creating a team of researchers and academics who have the sensitivity and the expertise to tackle local customs that perpetuate violence against women while providing counselling to victims who often have no one to turn to.

The empirical study and research being conducted by students and faculty has brought local stakeholders within the framework of informal discourse to discuss, share knowledge and learn the facts about the effects of the operational barriers and cultural constraints that have hindered women from becoming active agents of social change. The data collected under this study is helping to identify the kinds of initiatives required to enhance female participation at this level. The news
