This thematic sector encourages and supports projects that promote the development of entrepreneurship in Pakistan. The grants have focused on developing entrepreneurship skills and sustainable livelihood opportunities among impoverished women and youth, thus making them economically independent. In addition to training youth to develop their entrepreneurship skills, women from remote areas of the country received vocational training to further their local crafts, and farmers were trained on management and value addition. This is an exclusive Ambassador’s Fund thematic area.
