Pakistan is a country with stark inequalities. Even middle class families can hire domestic help to do everything from mowing their lawns and ironing their clothes to cooking their meals.Those who provide these services often live in shantytowns in the shadows of the big, gated houses where they work. Seeing this stark divide for himself prompted one young person in the country’s capital to create change. “I really did not expect something of that sort to sit right in the middle of one of the most expensive sectors in Islamabad, because I’d never seen the village from the inside before,” says Haroon Yasin.
