Just as the July 2010 floods impacted land and housing, it affected people's livelihoods as well. Many organizations have made efforts to increase the capacity of flood-affected women to make economic contributions.

In order to secure womens' financial welfare, IDRF with the help of HDO has created skilled training centers in 4 union councils of Dera Ismail Khan, where women are taught stitching, embroidery, tie and dye and decoration. After completing the training the women will be given an art kit.

Translation (by IDRF Volunteer, Shehrbano Raza):

Woman 1: This institution is functioning due to IDRF's contribution. In this center I take four classes and learn four skills: stitching, embroidery, decoration and tie and dye.

Woman 2: There were a lot of things that we didn't know and we have learned a lot. This center has trained us in a very good way.

In this training center women will also be taught marketing so they can sell their products at market rate. Due to the skill center, these women will not only gain new talents but they will be able to contribute their family's financial well being.
