THE STORY:

BLISS empowers adolescent girls in rural Pakistan through education and entrepreneurship training.

Our mission is to retain in school girls who are at risk of dropping out, or have never been schooled, and to give them practical, income-boosting skills. Our innovative curriculum provides participants the tools and training to launch their own handcrafts micro-enterprises. The profits fund their education, breaking the cycle of poverty and illiteracy.

BLISS is currently working with Barakat Inc in Attock, Pakistan, bringing to school Afghan refugee girls who previously labored at carpet looms for up to 14 hours a day, leaving no time to attend school.
