PAST PROJECTS

Women Handicraft Companies:

KADO, with the financial support of SDC, trained 3000 women in handicraft making, marketing, and selling of these products in 1996 through the program Karakoram Handicraft Development Programme (KHDP).

HANDICRAFT COMPANIES

The project was divested into 5 independent women-owned handicraft companies to ensure the sustainability of the impact of the Programme. Four of the companies were formed by the group of artisans working in secondary production units, and the fifth one comprised of the artisans and women employees working in central production and marketing units during the project phase. These companies were registered under the company’s ordinance. The women groups went through a meticulous capacity-building process to graduate from ‘workers to the owner’ to ‘employees to employers.
