In a country where only 1% women are engaged in entrepreneurship, Moqah Foundation is working to equip women to become entrepreneurs in their communities through a joint initiative with Alternativ's Global Entrepreneurs  by providing enterprise development trainings.  Alternativ's curriculum was adapted to Urdu and trained program leaders who developed a thorough understanding of the model through Train –the- Trainers course, conducted entrepreneurship training sessions in order to enlighten and empower the women to achieve autonomy, education and opportunity and decrease extreme poverty among the participants

So far, the program has seen two groups and 50 women trained and graduated with a certificate of achievement after 40 hours of training with a further three trainings to follow. The participants learned financial skills in money management. Words can't describe how inspiring and beautiful it was to see results of the follow-up of the trainees. In less than two months, 6 trainees have launched their businesses!

 Over the two years, we will target two poverty stricken communities in the regions of Bhara Kahu located near Islamabad Capital territory and in Kot Malik,  Sheikhpura a rural area situated on the outskirts of Lahore. We are also planning to expand to more communities outside of Islamabad, where women are especially vulnerable to forced in to forced early marriages, and face other cultural and security barriers face other cultural and security barriers.
