DIGITAL ACCELERATION PROGRAM FOR YOUTH LED MICRO ENTERPRISES:

In past five years with its commitment and aim CIRCLE has proved to be a catalyst in bringing about digitization and economic inclusion of women in communities across the country. We believe in the sustainability and development of the future generations through empowering women and young girls. We have mentored, trained and empowered women in Karachi, Gilgit, Ghizer, Peshawar, Rahim Yar Khan, Bahawalpur and Muzaffargarh through start up, business and digital trainings and now we plan to extend our operations in remote cities of Sindh and Punjab.

CIRCLE with the support of the British Asian Trust is working on transforming the lives of 330 young women through digital literacy and start up training. Due to poverty and little opportunities available for micro entrepreneurs, CIRCLE will be working in areas like Jhang, Faisalabad, Sargodha, Multan, Khanewal, Lahore, Karachi and Hyderabad. 330 young female entrepreneurs will receive a specialist package of micro-entrepreneurship and digital marketing training to become well equipped with the knowledge of business development, social media marketing and life skills.

IMPACT:

CIRCLE’s digital literacy program will impact youth and women microentrepreneurs and will mentor and groom them to contribute in the economic and digital development of Pakistan. CIRCLE’s Digital Acceleration project will impact 330 young women directly and will play a major role in their career and business development thus leading to
