Short description:
The Pakistan Rural Workers Social Welfare Organization is a voluntary organization which dedicates its work to the social uplift of the poor, especially from rural areas. PRWSWO was founded in 1994 by a group of community workers interested in the improvement of the standard of life of the disadvantaged sections of society, particularly the rural masses, through a variety of socio-economic services.

The NGO is involved in the socio-economic development activities, on a self help and participatory basis, particularly in the areas of education, health (sanitation and drinking water), drug prevention, rural & agriculture development, combating desertification and others with emphasis on child welfare, women development, human rights, environment and community mobilization. The organization seeks to coordinate with the government and other donor agencies for social development in rural areas.

PRWSWO organizes training courses and strategy development workshops for rural workers and their trainers. Their work is also aimed at imposing programmes for rural women's development to eradicate the hazards of child labor and to initiate a drive against narcotics and drug addiction.
