From September 2013 to March 2014, 18 interfaith volunteers (7 Muslim and 11 Christian) taught participants basic reading, writing, and arithmetic skills and organized two trainings on small business skills and women’s rights in Pakistan. Now, graduates of the program are being connected  with micro finance organization “Akhuwat,” which will provide them with interest-free microloans to start small businesses at community and city levels.
