Allhamdulillah we have empowered a total of 2,400 beneficiaries since the inception of this project and have contributed to breaking the gender-gap in marginalised communities of Pakistan.
Women Empowerment has always been one of our most prominent projects as it addresses one of the biggest target demographics in Karachi, Pakistan. We understand that providing women the tools they need to become a financial support to their families will ease the economic burden on impoverished households.
Through our Women Empowerment Project, we give sewing machines to women in need, to assist them in becoming skilled individuals capable of contributing to their families’ finances and with your donations as the driver, we aim to give women the resources they need to not only obtain consistent, reliable revenue streams, but also invaluable skills that they can transfer to various spheres of their life.
Our Women Empowerment Project has been executed and established in the following areas of Pakistan:Jamhoria, Surjani Town, Mangopir among many more.
INVEST IN A WOMAN, INVEST IN A NATION
Islam gives women the right to work and support their families and we are doing our bit to encourage women who want to work by providing them with the tools they need to work from the safety and comfort of their own homes. The clothing industry is one of the fasting growing ones in the world, worth 1.5 trillion dollars as of 2020; giving women from Pakistan a chance to tap into this market can possibly transform their and their families’ lives for the better.

I heard that Ummah Charity International is helping women like me by giving away sewing machines.
