WHO WE ARE?

Working Women Welfare Trust (WWWT) is a non-profit, PCP certified & EAD registered organization which has directed its efforts towards the betterment and welfare of women who are compelled to assume the role of bread winners (either solely or in part) for their families.

WHAT WE DO?

With the passage of time the organization’s struggle for its cause has taken many forms.

On one hand the trust is trying to create employment opportunities for the under privileged rural women whereas on the other hand it raises voice for the betterment of working conditions of those who are already in jobs of various sorts.

Working Women Welfare Trust WWWT organizes Workshops, Seminars, Discussion forums & Press Conferences and enhances the women cause.

We believe in women empowerment with knowledge that instills ethical and positive values.

 

Hunar banae Zindagi

The project comes under the Poverty Alleviation Program which is working for the welfare of illiterate but skilled women of Pakistan who have extra-ordinary art in their hand.

We envisage the accomplished, self reliant prosperous working women, who would stand out as an asset to their families and society.

The Poverty Alleviation Program

The goal is to provide income-generating opportunities to under-privileged women at their doorsteps to save them from middlemen exploitation.

Under Village Embroidery Project, the talented rural women are provided with the highest quality material, latest and trendy designs and are well paid for their master pieces.

This finest quality embroidered fabric gains access to local as well as international market by means of advertisement and exhibitions.

Our Target

We target the real issues: Extreme Poverty, illiteracy, lack of opportunities, lack of awareness, & social pressure.

In order to cope with this, We are striving to provide income-generating opportunities to poor women at their doorsteps in rural areas and slums in Karachi to help alleviate poverty and beggary.

We are aiming to equip working women with value-based knowledge, technical skills, and awareness about their economic, social rights and responsibilities.

Our Vision
Is to provide respectable earning opportunity at the door step of skilled/unskilled women of Pakistan and discourage begging and habit of living on charity.
Our Mission
Pursue and facilitate women who are uneducated but have skill of arts and crafts, to use their talents for earning and improving their living conditions.
