Developing talents to bring income and hope in women

One of the most valuable strategies in fighting extreme poverty is teaching people skills so they can learn to provide for themselves

The Women and young girls of the area are illiterate, poor and vulnerable doing house hold work in nearby house .where they get low salaries and are also  face difficult situations and are not provided with the proper care  and are always at the risk of physical and sexual abuse. Young girls may not be able to go to school due to poverty.

Lack of empowerment for women in a male dominated society and living in poverty stricken conditions are well documented areas of concern in most regions of Pakistan.  Association fir Humanitarian Development (AHD)   believes that knowledge and skills that can be practically used are key steps towards improvement and empowerment of women in their local community where such conditions exist.
