Join The Second Floor (T2F) for the third session of The Perween Rahman Lecture Series, instituted to keep Perween’s voice and legacy alive and to continue talking about the issues closest to her heart.
Perween Rahman’s support for Tehrik-e-Niswan’s Theatre for Community Development, was part of her work to enlighten the residents of low-income settlements of their inalienable right to a good life. Sheema Kermani, founder of Tehrik-e-Niswan, will discuss the role of theatre for social uplift and Perween Rahman’s role in partnering with Tehrik-e-Niswan to bring meaningful entertainment and aesthetics to the people of Orangi. Tehrik-e-Niswan will also present a dramatic tribute to Perween Rehman.
Perween Rahman was one of Pakistan’s brightest lights. A renowned social worker, urban planner, and architect, Perween spent decades working on poverty alleviation projects with the guiding philosophy of ‘apni madad aap’ (help yourself). On 13th March 2013, Perween was murdered by armed assailants while returning home from work. Her death has been mourned across Pakistan and the social development world.
