Ever signed something without really knowing what’s in it? It happens to the best of us. But what if that something is as important as your marriage contract? The Pakistan Commission on the Status of Women reveals that two-thirds of women in the country cannot comprehend their Nikahnama due to illiteracy. Even those who can read often skim through the document, oblivious to the rights it delineates.
Bridging the gap and championing the cause, easypaisa has launched the ‘Audio Nikahnama,’ allowing women to access the content of their Nikahnama in a language they understand. By simply leaving a missed call to 0341 117 1222, women all over Pakistan, can now listen to the audio Nikahnama in seven different languages, including Urdu, English, Balochi, Pashto, Sindhi, Punjabi, and Saraiki, making crucial information accessible to them.
Addressing another crucial aspect, easypaisa ensures that those with hearing disabilities are not left behind. Through sign language videos, individuals with hearing impairments can now understand the intricacies of the Nikahnama.
easypaisa’s Audio Nikahnama initiative is a commendable stride towards empowering women and fostering inclusivity. And to promote this service, easypaisa has gone above and beyond, extending its reach to three major cities in Pakistan – Karachi, Lahore, and Islamabad. Through graffiti campaigns, the company is communicating a vital message about the significance of reading and understanding the clauses of the Nikahnama. This visually striking initiative is not only raising awareness but also encouraging individuals to take an active role in understanding their rights and obligations.
By leveraging technology and communication channels, easypaisa has embarked on a mission to ensure that no woman is left uninformed about her rights at the time of her Nikah. This is more than just a service; it is a step towards a more informed and empowered society. Kudos to easypaisa for leading the way in social responsibility and making a tangible impact on the lives of countless individuals across Pakistan.
