Economic Empowerment in Pakistan

Poor and vulnerable families, especially women and youth, enjoy their right to an adequate standard of living

Plan International Pakistan’s work to ensure a “Right to Adequate Standard of Living”, supports the economic priorities and strategies of the government of Pakistan and focuses on the following key areas:

  1. Strengthening access of the poor to financial services and microfinance training
  2. Developing the skills and knowledge of young women and men through Youth Economic Empowerment programing
  3. Training farmers in agriculture and livestock management and supporting farmer’s milk cooperatives

Our work within Youth Economic Empowerment includes increasing awareness of men and women of the different employment choices available, improving young peoples employability capacities with vocational and technical skills and entrepreneurship and active engagement of youth (women and men) to undertake participatory youth led advocacy initiatives.
