Working to end gender violence and discrimination by empowering women across Pakistan.
Sughar Empowerment Society is a non-profit organization that provides socio-economic and educational empowerment to tribal women in their base cities of Balochistan and Sindh. They offer entrepreneurial skill development and provide women with opportunities to learn and generate income. By arming these women with an education, financial resources, and leadership roles not only in their households but in their society, Sughar helps to lower gender discrimination and the rate of violence against women. Sughar establishes Women Learning and Skill Development Centers in selected rural communities. Each center offers a six-month course to tribal/rural women to learn embroidery and enterprise development, as well as the chance to receive a basic education and literacy skills. After graduating from the course, each woman is given a minimum loan to launch production of her products. Sughar has also launched the first Rural Fashion Brand for the tribal/rural women in Pakistan to ensure that the traditional embroidery made by these women has a rightful place in the fashion industry of Pakistan, in addition to ensuring that women receive increased profit for their embroidery products.
