IWO Community Rules

The Islamabad Welfare Organization(IWO)

COMMUNITY,              GROUPS,              FORUM ,              BLOG

Greetings! Here are the three rules we agreed on in the first class meeting:

1) Attack the argument, not the author. You should absolutely feel free to disagree with the readings or each other, but don’t attack people personally–i.e. explain why you disagree with what they’ve said, not what you think it says about their intellect or moral status. Not only is it mean, it’s often a logical fallacy that undermines your argument.

2) Follow standard usage (at least mostly). The writing here does not need to be as formal as most academic papers. You can use the first person, use fragments/bullet points if that helps you get your point across. Profanity and occasional internet slang are fine. Just try to avoid shortcuts and styles that are annoying or difficult to read, like ALL CAPS or r u kidding me?

3) Check the credibility of your sources. There’s lots of information on the internet, not all of it reliable. If you’re bringing in outside sources, try to figure out where the information came from and whether or not it’s likely to be false or biased. If you’re not sure about a source, try to verify the information elsewhere.

4) Respect each others’ anonymity. You can reveal as much or as little about yourself as you like, but don’t reveal identifying characteristics or personal information about anyone else unless they’ve already made that information part of the discussion.

One more guideline, though it’s not a hard and fast rule: Please stay on-topic. Off-topic posts & comments may be deleted. But all links and thoughts related to the course are welcome, whether or not you’re signed up to post on that particular day!

President Message

Being Founder / president IWO, I can proudly claim that I have achieved most of my lifetime objectives through the Organization, as I have been able to solve the problems of needy people of my country.

Illiteracy is one of the biggest problems in Pakistan, and the responsibility lies on us to solve it through all out efforts by the people, community based organizations and the government as well. We must strive hard to promote literacy among neglected children. 

 I feel that I have to do something in my life for those children who are unable to reach a school for education. I want to work for the poor through financial donations and contributions provided by the members of IWO.

 The Journey from transforming IWO Social Welfare organization is very hard to explain. I am thankful to Allah Almighty for giving us strength and power to setup and run this organization to achieve our vision of a world without poverty, in which every person can struggle for his  / her rights to live with dignity and justice. I have continuously worked hard for the organization. I am soft hearted for poor people and I can never stop my self to help poor people. I want to spend my whole life to serve my nation. But this is not possible without the help of generous people and the community. Perhaps IWO is a proper platform to serve and help the needy people.
