Deeply influenced by the social inequalities around her and inspired by her father’s social work in her early age, Shad Begum would become a known figure nationally and internationally because of her determined struggle to improve the conditions of the marginalized segments, especially women, of her community in the northwest of Pakistan – a deeply religious and conservative area where Taliban publicly executed men and women on non-conformity to their version of Islam.

ShenKhali is an initiative of ABKT to promote the work of rural women workers/artisans from Swat-Malakand region who have unique and historical experience of embellished work. Unfortunately these rural women artisans and their labor is exploited by middle men and pay them a very nominal wages for their work because they do not have access to and the freedom to market their products directly to buyers in the urban centers. ABKT has opened an outlet at Islamabad to showcase and sell the embellished products of these women artisans. We have devised a system wherein ABKT buys raw material and develops patterns and designs for the women artisans according to the market demands and then sell these products to buyers in Islamabad and throughout Pakistan. ABKT pays the daily wages to these women workers but also pay them a share of the net profits from the products, thus making them primary stakeholders and leading them to greeter economic empowerment.
