Summary

In Pakistan, a root cause of the socio-economic problems that transgender women face is their exclusion from public economic platforms. In response, the PINK Skills & Training Center provides training, capacity building, micro-financing, mentoring, and resource mobilization for trans women to use entrepreneurship as a tool of socio-economic empowerment. We aim to support trans entrepreneurs as they maintain their businesses, become independent, and make informed decisions about their lives.

Challenge

Entrepreneurs are an essential asset and a vital element for any economy to achieve sustainable development. And while trans people can economically contribute and sustain themselves, they are still deprived of economic opportunities due to stigma and discrimination in Pakistan. The trans community faces disproportionate rates of stigma, discrimination, and violence - with sex work being one of the only viable occupations.

Solution

This project boosts transgender entrepreneurship in Pakistan. Through our trainings, resources, and programming, trans people have a space to maintain their businesses, improve their skills, and access friendly networks. With our road map, we also provide guidance on laws, give direction on basic leadership, and streamline operations for trans entrepreneurship.

Long-Term Impact

We expect to create the opportunity for economic advancement and business pilots for 100 trans individuals, who will then contribute to the Pakistani economy. More personally, we see our long term impact as empowering our trans beneficiaries to become economically independent and free from poverty.
