A one-day exhibition-cum-workshop was organized by the Pakistan Community Support Project (PCSP) to provide a bigger platform to the budding women entrepreneurs.

The event was aimed at helping women from project’s implementation areas to exhibit their skills and products and connect them with government departments and private institutions to boost their economic opportunities.

A large number of people from different walks of life attended the event.

While speaking at the event, the Director General Sustainable Development Unit of the Planning & Development Department, Sohail Khan, said that 50 per cent of the global work-
force comprised of women and the work being done by them accumulated almost 66 per cent of the total input.

“It’s high time that we provide economic and income generation opportunities to the women in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, particularly  in the merged areas, so that they can productively engage and participate in the uplift of the rural economy,” he said.

The exhibition was followed by a round of focused group discussions in a workshop setting wherein experts interacted with the community members to collectively share experiences.
