Establishment of small businesses for girls

Summary

Owing to COVID-19 there has been a substantial increase in global unemployment where the underdeveloped countries suffered the most. Our project aims at providing two-week short courses which cater to both blue collar and white collar work available at the time these include tailoring, manufacturing, cooking, public health, and IT based courses. We will ensure employment for up to 500 young people, both girls and boys, to help them and their families to cope with the economic hardship.

Challenge

Poverty and lack of opportunities for the rural community in Interior SIndh, Pakistan. The rural Community in Interior Sindh provides no opportunities to make them useful members, contributing to the economic welfare of their homes. This problem in our target areas of Interior Sindh namely Dadhu, Larkana and Tharparker was identified through a need assessment. The main problems prevalent in the area are; rampant poverty, lack of opportunity, lack of skills and social and cultural constraints.

Solution

Skills training and vocational training courses aimed at economic empowerment of the community. We will establish 3 vocational training centers which will teach tailoring, kitchen gardening and hand embroidery short courses with duration of 3 months each, to provide necessary skills to the girls. The girls will than setup small businesses with the help of NHSD for tailoring and hand embroidery. They will also start growing vegetables for sale in the market.

Long-Term Impact

Reduction in poverty and better economic prospects for the community. The women will become skilled, confident and will work hard to ensure a better life for themselves and their families. They will gain economic independance and social inclusion. The villages of these areas will become economically empowered since more and more girls and women will continue to be taught in these centers more and more businesses subsequently get established sucessfully.
