I am the younger sister of Asia who you might have heard of before. My name is Nadia Ijaz and I am currently pursuing a double major in Mathematics. Along with my sister, I secured a place in Kaarvan for myself. I love to learn whether its numbers, patterns or design. I have always had a flame of spirit and dreams that soared high and I hope to become the beacon of change as I grow and learn more. As life progresses, I am sure that I will always remember the training that led me to the path I am on today. It is this path that enabled me to achieve my goals and dream for even more. I have learned to value myself and take pride in who I am and the work I do. Instead of being left unheard, my opinion today is heard. People come to me with their queries and problems and they listen to what I have to say. It is this self-worth that Kaarvan has enabled me to recognize that I would call my single biggest achievement!
In December 2020, the complaint was filed via email to Kaarvan’s Board Members, and highlighting a concern to a specific Whistle Blowing Policy in Kaarvan’s HR Manual.
“According to the Kaarvan’s HR Manual; under Section – 6: Employee Code of Conduct – 6.3: Whistle Blowing Policy:
If someone has a concern about malpractice or any wrongdoing, he/she is encouraged to report/highlight it to his/her immediate supervisor, or directly to CEO .
But If the malpractice or wrongdoing is somehow directed to the CEO himself, how should employees proceed? A policy missing in the HR Manual. I humbly ask Kaarvan’s stakeholder to address this for the sake of current and future employees of Kaarvan working directly under the CEO’s supervision.”
An in response the CEO through the Head of Programs started filing baseless lawsuits/complaints against the one who highlighted the financial fraud at Pakistan’s law enforcement agencies to threaten him to give up on pursuing the complaint.
