Gilgit-Baltistan Social Welfare Organization (G-B SWO)® works for the development of Gilgit-Baltistan by targeting social and economic frontiers like education, environment, tourism, economic development, health and individual awareness. This organization operates exclusively for the promotion of social welfare; it serves primarily to further the common good and general interest of the local community, such as bringing about civic betterment and social improvement.
Considering the immediate need for the improvement in educational sectors currently, we are focusing on education by creating awareness and arranging seminars, conferences, competitions and coaching sessions. This reason for the immediate attention on education is to uplift those communities which are relatively under-privileged. The geographical areas we cover is the region of Gilgit-Baltistan.
The geographical dispersion of Gilgit-Baltistan on a vast area makes it challenging to identify, analyze and address the issues of the region like students’ guidance, awareness, tourism and future of this arena. The advancement of information technology has contracted the entire world to a global village, even to a global room. It has gifted us a facility of the internet that showed a positive influence on our lives. This interconnection has also provided an opportunity for the students of Gilgit-Baltistan to unite on one platform to address, share and resolve their issues in their way to a bright future. Thus a student dwelling whether in metropolitans of Karachi or the mountains of Karakorum, Hindukush, Himalayas or even somewhere else abroad can discuss and disseminate his/her information and experience.
Thus keeping in view the importance of the internet, we have established an NGO besides an online community. Its website will provide a common platform for the public, especially students of Gilgit-Baltistan who are the main target of our organization. It is managed and run by dedicated students as well as professional people of the region to provide information, discussions on various educational, cultural, social and political issues. The organization understands through considered introspection, analysis and self-reflection the right direction for a successful life. It provides ammunition, especially in the field of education to compete for upcoming challenges of the twenty-first century. It will try to instil qualities that lend a purpose to the people.
Gilgit-Baltistan Social Welfare Organization® strives to work on the issues of educational, civic life and socio-cultural aspects. Keeping all these aspects in mind, the organization has given a core value in its manifesto to help to boost up the masses of the region, mainly student community, to compete at all stages of life.
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.
