Celebrating Pakistani Women
Around 75 dynamic women entrepreneurs, trailblazers and icons were honored and participated in a warm afternoon affair held at the German Consulate.
“This was a humbling experience to have a gathering for ten years of LADIESFUND winners,” stated Tara Uzra Dawood, President, Dawood Global Foundation and LADIESFUND. “We’re delighted to be a bridge between Pakistani and German women professionals and entrepreneurs.”
The Legacy Luncheon provided a great platform to interact with the crème de la crème of Pakistan. We’re sure more than a few innovative ideas were shared at the gathering and we hope to see them come to fruition soon!
The Entertainment For The Night
A very special dance performance of Khattak classical dance was performed by Anjaleen Maryam Agrawalla, as well as a guitar performance by Pakistani musician Arieb Azhar.
Spotted at the star-studded event at the German consulate were Sheema Kermani, Noorjehan Bilgrami, Nilofer Saeed, Yasmin Lari, Sindh rural icon Champa, Zeenat S. Ahmed, Peng Qureshi, Madiha Sultan Tai, etc.
The Highlight Of The Luncheon
At the LADIESFUND Legacy Luncheon, there was a showcase of ten made in Pakistan women entrepreneur artisan stalls. These included Beads Desired, Crafts, Pooja’s, Meem Wear Your Couture, Wahda, Rangoli by Em Zee, Oddweaver, Hunerkari, and Firefly.
Each of these women not only exhibited innovative, ethnic items at the German consulate, but they also undertook the responsibility to educated underprivileged girls as part of the Foundation’s “Educate a Girl” initiative.
Areesha Khan harbours a burning passion for writing. This is what she has to say for herself:
I’m your average Pakistani Millennial who loves binge watching trash-TV. When I can, I try to widen my horizons and watch profound works of cinematography as well. In the wild, I can be found sniffing my weathered paperbacks. I regularly obsess over true crime (much to the chagrin of my friends) and love discussing it unprompted. I’m currently working on my undergrad and would love to have a profession in print media.
