These Pakistani Women Carpenters Are Fighting for Empowerment (at CIQAM Karimabad)

This is one of the most inspiring stories I have ever come across. Up in the mountains of northern Pakistan, a group of female carpenters is creating real social change. CIQAM, based out of Altit Fort (not Karimabad, as I incorrectly stated in the video!), trains and employs women and girls from local villages and impoverished backgrounds, offering them a chance to become financially and socially independent. Out of the 90 women working for CIQAM, 37 are carpenters. This initiative is truly ground-breaking in Pakistan’s conventionally patriarchal society – but it comes at a cost.
