Challenge

In the semi urban area of Warispura, Faisalabad.The majority among the un-educated and un-skilled women and young girls are associated with domestic and household work.Their income is limited (PKR 1500-2000 a month).Lack of proper training in any discipline is a factor which keeps them apart from earning a respectable place in the society.They are more vulnerable to poverty,large family sizes, poor health,low social status, less or no education,violence and sexual exploitation.

Solution

AWARD Pakistan has already bought a piece of land of 1Kanal (5445 sq ft) in Warispura.The purpose to buy the land was to construct a multistorey building which will be a permanent source of learning for the unskilled and uneducated women of extreme poor background.Approximately 400 women at one time would be able to train through diversified skills(Sewing, Knitting, Cooking, Beautician,Fancy Embroidery,Adult Literacy,Computer Literacy,Book Keeping,Small Business Training,Baking,Confectionary etc
