The commitment of National Organization for Working Communities (NOWCommunities) was founded in 2007 - though it was formally registered with the Sindh Government in January 2008 - by a team of dedicated experts in development sector who were already working in various fields concerning labour, women, peace, minorities, media, education, and community health. Ever since its inception, NOWCommunities has tried to root itself in the working communities by strengthening their existing contacts and building more through different interventions.
