So let's all choose to challenge.
According to the World Economic Forum’s Global Gender Gap Report 2020, at the current rate of change, gender parity will not be attained for another 99.5 years.
Living in 2021, it is important to challenge developing countries such as Pakistan as they have the biggest gender-inequalities. This is why The International Women’s Day 2021 theme, #ChooseToChallenge is important for SKT Welfare. We have made it our mission to uplift women and restore the balance.
The Lifting Lives project was launched to help women reach their true potential, develop their skills and live a life of dignity. We firmly believe that women empowerment holds the key to a truly developed nation. When a woman is given a chance to use her full potential, she climbs the ladder of success and also pushes the entire society towards prosperity.
Farzana lived in a house with no gas or electricity, and a plastic sheet that served the purpose of a roof. She dreamt of becoming independent and earning an income where she could live comfortably, but unfortunately, this was nothing but just a dream.
Thankfully, through the Lifting Lives project, Farzana has now become a qualified beautician and can use these skills to earn an income that will allow her to live a happy and content life.
