ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan bait-ul-mal (PBM), on Thursday, received a cutting table, embroidery machines and sewing machines for the women empowerment centre (WEC), established in Tarnol, from the Muslim aid Pakistan (MAP).

According to an official statement, in the presence of PBM managing director (MD) Aon Abbas Buppi, MAP programmes head Fahad Iqbal Haidri handed over the equipment to PBM director Sajjad Iqbal during a ceremony held in the PBM head office.

Admiring the humanitarian services of MAP, the PBM-MD Buppi expressed his gratitude for sincere gesture towards susceptible women of the country.

“Economic empowerment of women results in financial stability within a family, induces economic independence and provides momentous contributions to the well-being of the society,” he added.

PBM MD Buppi informed that presently 156 WECs are functional countrywide including Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) and the northern areas, where vocational training to widows, orphans and poor girls is being provided free of charge.

At present, the latest information technology (IT) courses are being introduced in these centres and the passing out women are also being offered soft loans to initiate their own businesses.
