Sustainable Livelihoods: Nissaaee Hunr

Sustainable livelihoods programme aims to facilitate women’s economic empowerment. Shirakat is in process of establishing contacts with women home based workers from all over Pakistan and facilitated marketing of their products by participating in exhibitions.

Shirakat has done one survey of home based workers in Rawalpindi area in 2011. A vocational centre was established in Jaranwala Punjab as the economic situation of Jaranwala keeps deteriorating due to power/energy crisis resulting in many factories moving out lock stock and barrel to other countries. The centre however did not work out for various reasons and had to be closed down. Another vocational centre has been opened in Bhara Kahu and is functional.
