Women engage in small scale enterprises such as making bedsheets, quilts, pillows, crochet dresses for children, hand embroidered dress and shawls etc. A 3 day event “Family Gala” was organized by the District Administration Nowshera and SRSP to showcase the products of these skilled women. 3 stalls were put-up by women entrepreneurs, who were trained in the Women Business Centres under the Government of Australia funded WEEMD Project. Deputy Commissioner, Minister for Excise and Taxation, potential buyers and local community visited the stalls.
50 young people, between 18 to 30 years of age, receive skills enhancement training in electrician and sanitary fitting courses. The group was selected from District Peshawar, Charsadda and Nowshera. The training was organized at SRSP’s Technical & Vocational Center in Peshawar, which offered a certified course from City & Guilds UK. Their team conducted post-training evaluation and certificates were distributed among the best performances. The initiative is funded by the Government of Australia under Women Economic Empowerment and Market Development (WEEMD) project.
