Rozan is an Islamabad-based NGO working on issues related to emotional and psychological health, gender, violence against women and children, and the psychological and reproductive health of adolescents.

Rozan’s mission is ‘to work with all people, especially vulnerable groups, to collectively strive for a society that is violence free, self aware and accepting of itself and others’.
 
Vulnerability is defined as historically marginalized and powerless groups with special emphasis on women, youth, children, the poor, and sexual and religious minorities.
 
Rozan's team consists of psychologists, social workers, volunteers, and supporters. Rozan was officially registered in December 1998 under the Societies Act of 1860 and was awarded tax-exemption status in 2005. In 2006, Rozan acquired the prestigious special consultative status with the United Nation’s Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC).
