There are over 10 million gypsies living in Pakistan that face deep prejudice, hostility, and exploitation. Nazir Ghazi and his organization, Godh (meaning 'lap of the mother' in Urdu), provide education, health services, and job opportunities to the growing number of gypsy communities in urban Pakistan. Nazir also encourages gypsies to participate in street theater productions and public outreach to help educate mainstream society about their culture and promote tolerance.
