In Urdu, â€œkissanâ€ means a farmer and so FKFP incorporated that in their organizationâ€™s name in hopes of becoming the voice of poorly treated peasants of Pakistan.
Fariya Bukhari, chief executive director of FKFP, is dedicated to liberating the kissans from a life of slavery by putting an end to the ancient system of feudalism while empowering the kissans to work for themselves by ensuring the provision of appropriate resources.
â€œI see the future kissan of Pakistan as an educated and strong entrepreneurs making a pivotal part of Pakistanâ€™s economy,â€ Bukhari shared.
Bukhari isnâ€™t looking to only raise donations; sheâ€™s building a committed team that will work collectively toward empowering the Pakistani kissan.
â€œI need brains, compassion, commitment and unity of the masses to work towards this very critical civil rights campaign that will change the life of 115 million Pakistanis if successful.â€ Bukhar emphasized. â€œPakistan needs your skills, brains, strategy, compassion and commitment to give them control over their lives and income.â€
Bukhari believes FKFPâ€™s efforts will impact Pakistanâ€™s outlook as a nation as 64 percent of Pakistanis live in the villages out of that majority of the population is working in the agricultural industry.
In regards to Saturdayâ€™s meeting, Bukhari said â€œThis was an introductory session to inform the masses about the ideology of this platform.â€
Was the goal achieved? â€œThe event went very wellâ€¦ good turn-over, receptive and intelligent audience, and the best part is that people got engaged and committed,â€ Bukhari enthused.
