National Database & Registration Authority (NADRA) has launched a drive for transgender persons.
Special measures were taken to reach out to the marginalised segment of society, transgender communities, and persons on International Human Rights Day.
The campaign called “Trans-Rights are Human Rights” aims to increase the registration of transgender persons from the marginalised community and create awareness across the country. Authorities are making conscious efforts to reach their goal. One is that corrective training will be conducted on personals on the 13th of December. This will help authorities identify and diminish hurdles encountered during registration.
Up to date, the National Database & Registration Authority has registered 5,626 transgender persons. These individuals have opted for a gender that is neither male nor female. To empower this marginalised community, the authority aims to inform the group of the significance of legal identity, which can further empower them in the community.
National Database & Registration Authority (NADRA) has further engaged the Ministry of Human Rights, Provincial/District Social Welfare Departments to mobilise trans persons for the Computerized National Identity Card (CNIC ) registration. This, in turn, will assist the community in diminishing and eliminating long-standing discrimination, exclusion, and sporadic violence.
Moreover, it is the only organisation at the moment which has provided the trans community with equal opportunities for transgender persons to get jobs and be a part of the organization. It already has trans employees given jobs as per their qualification and experience.
