Herself

In the rapidly changing world of ours, the traditional obstacles to women pursuing their dreams are gradually fading away; Information Technology has emerged as the key enabler for breaking down these barriers and empowering women to excel in all walks of life. Herself aims to help Pakistani women realize their dreams and provide them with a voice in the global discourse by helping them actualize their true potential and contribute to the socio-political and economic development of the country. More importantly, Herself strives to educate women and empower them to make best use of their skills while dealing with the socio-economic constraints that exist, thus gradually reforming the societal paradigm. We conduct a cycle every 3 months by opening applications and shortlisting candidates we believe are suitable for our program via a defined procedure. Upon formation of a cohort after selection, our women are provided pre-incubation training ranging from Personal Development sessions to Project/Operations management courses. These trainings are conducted by professionals and experts from the industry. We primarily target women who want to start their own ventures or are already running a start-up. Among our trainings, we offer courses on freelancing, graphic/web designing, photography, etc. There are no pre-requisites in terms of qualifications and background for our program and there is no age limit. To top it all, all our trainings are free of cost. We're working to achieve our goal of empowering women using technology and we welcome all women and organizations with a similar vision!
