Women Hostel in KarachiBy Sara Ali • Jan 9th, 2012 • Category: Misc • 8 Comments
Working Women in Karachi and the professional girls in Karachi are anxious about their accommodation as those who don’t have the accommodation have to bear huge costs for the flats and the apartments and its not very secure and peaceful for them. Many girls hail from the interior Sindh, from KPK, and from Punjab and Balochistan to work and study in this metropolis.
But for these girls from remote places of Pakistan, there is very little decent, safe, budget residence is available. They have to really pay a huge sum to get any thing liveable which is a shame, because the place of work, or the university, college or government should be providing them this facility which is basic.
There are notably two hostels in Karachi for girls and women, but they are very confusing for admission. Both hostels are being operated by the non-governmental organizations. One, the Young Women Christians Association (YWCA) has its premises in the center of the city on M.A. Jinnah Road next to the Mama Parsi School and the other one being operated by the Pakistan Federation of Business and Professional Women in Clifton behind the old Mideast Hospital. Both of these hostels admit only those women who come from other parts of the country.
Government should immediately do something in this regard.
