Rozan is an Islamabad based NGO working on issues related to emotional and psychological health, gender, violence against women and children, and the psychological and reproductive health of adolescents. Most Rozan team members are qualified psychologists who work to enhance the emotional health of people from all sections of the society by conducting awareness raising activities, trainings and counseling.
Though Rozan''s children''s program, Aangan, has been active since 1993, Rozan was officially registered in December 1998 under the Societies Act of 1860 and was awarded tax-exemption status in 2005. In 2006, Rozan acquired the prestigious special consultative status with the United Nation’s Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC).
Many of Rozan''s staff members and active volunteers were previously involved with another NGO (named Bedari) and they brought with them several years of experience in working on sensitive societal issues when they joined Rozan. In fact, some of them are pioneers in breaking the silence on issues like rape and child sexual abuse in Pakistan.
