Skill Development Project
According to a UN report , when women work, they re-invest 90 per cent of their income into the family as compared to 30-40 per cent by men. They spend more money on their children, education, food and shelter, which creates long-term economic and social benefits for their families and communities.
Moreover, it makes them an essential contributor for reducing poverty. A new concept of entrepreneurship for female is playing its vital role in the development of Human Capital. Azad Jammu Kashmir (AJK) has a difficult geography with poor access, marginalization and high incidence of poverty and unemployment fighting with this mass problem of poverty and unemployment due to lack of technical education / skills.
Young girls and female have extremely low options to take a part in income generation activities. TVET improves women’s knowledge, practices and skills and enhances their probabilities of becoming successful entrepreneur, independent, empowered and active members of a society. To facilitate women with expertise and skills is not only essential to access to supply-side factors of work but also for the social factors. HDF in collaboration with DM-AID has equipped 160 females in dress making in deserving villages of district Muzaffarabad.
