Summary

Challenge

Pakistan deals with many issues; The World Economic Forum 2017 reports that Pakistan ranks second to last (144/145) in the world in terms of women's economic opportunity and participation in the workforce. According to the recent Global Entrepreneurship Monitor report only 1% of Pakistani women are engaged in entrepreneurship which is the lowest proportion in the world.

Solution

We provide 1,500 women with training and market linkages to support themselves and their families. When women and girls earn income, they reinvest 90% of it into their families and communities, breaking the cycles of poverty.

Long-Term Impact

The expected outcomes of this project are to enable women to apply for formal jobs, interview with confidence, and negotiate better wages, or be well-prepared for self-employment. In addition, during training the women will learn how to safely advocate for improved rights and working conditions in their community and practice networking to create a mechanism for collective bargaining.
