Our Projects


We believe that the real strength of a country is determined not by military and economic power but by the strength of education and character of that nation. Therefore, we are focussing on the education sector of Gilgit-Baltistan. Gilgit-Baltistan Social Welfare Organization provides information and statistics regarding the education status of Gilgit-Baltistan. We also guide students of Gilgit-Baltistan about the reserved seats in engineering universities, medical & polytechnic colleges and other academic institutions for the candidates of Gilgit-Baltistan across the country. Furthermore, we do our best to guide students about admission at national and international levels through our website and social media networks, and awareness campaigns with the help of our career advisors and coordinators.

Gilgit-Baltistan Social Welfare Organization® has joined hands with numerous schools and colleges in Gilgit-Baltistan to achieve these goals. We provide career guidance seminars and coaching sessions as required. We believe that education is very important for our lives since it has an immense impact on human society. It takes the human mind to think and to take the right decision. The quality of human resource of a nation is easily judged by the number of literate population living in it. In short, education is a must if a country aspires to achieve growth and development and more importantly sustain it. In today’s world education has become an absolute necessity for economic and social development of a nation.


Tourism is the fastest growing industry in Gilgit-Baltistan, and its impacts on natural resources have become apparent due to domestic tourism influx in Gilgit-Baltistan, since 2015. The beautiful landscape and the unique cultural heritage of Gilgit-Baltistan create a centre of attention for tourists from all over the world. Every year hundreds and thousands of tourists visit Gilgit-Baltistan. Tourism is the significant sources of income in different parts of Gilgit-Baltistan, and it is vital to keep the industry healthy and sustainable in the long-run.
Since there is no tourism policy, Gilgit-Baltistan Social Welfare Organization® is doing its best to create awareness about ecotourism and negative impacts of tourism through our website and social media networks.


Gilgit-Baltistan Social Welfare Organization® also actively participates in promoting and preserving the indigenous culture of Gilgit-Baltistan for generations to come through social media networks. One of our page ‘Shina Language – Shina Baash’ is very popular all over the country with almost 4000 likes.
