JHWNH holds meeting with MeraMaan
JHWNH called a meeting at Titanium Hall, Rj Mall, Karachi, in collaboration with “MeraMaanPvt Limited” during the week. Hira Anis, Co-founder JHWNH started the event with a welcome speech. Ms. Nighat led the meeting and shed light on her work.
She said, “She started her work 36 years ago as an entrepreneur and gained ample experience to decide to hand over her exposure to strugglers and help them to uplift their lives. Therefore she picked Hira as she found her erudite and mind alike.
For years there has been talk of ‘men keeping women down,’ but is it the bitter truth that women remain their own worst enemies.
JHWNH proved this saying wrong and decided to empower each other by joining hands. She said women are 54% of the population. They can work and earn even from home to support her and family. For 4 years JHWNH supported uncountable startups and became an institute that helped women to learn and earn, not locally but internationally.
Hameed Bhutto appreciated the efforts and promised for further support, he also offered a 50% discount in CSS preparation for JHWNH members. Session concluded with question Answers between honorary guests and members. They planned industrial visits, trainings, one to one collaborations, and every possible support.
