Hunza Valley is matchless not just for its breathtaking landscape, but also for how it values the need for empowering the women.
Zainaba Hussain was one of the first women to be trained by Karakoram Area Development Organization (KADO) back in 1997. With the help of the women, KADO developed the Gulmit Carpet Centre and now it is run by the women who pass on the training to the younger generation.
Women, if given the opportunity, can undoubtedly do wonders and carry out social reforms. Entrepreneurially speaking, we also witnessed a first-rate small business, The Gulmit Carpet Centre. All the carpets there, hand-knotted (and rather expensive for people like us), are produced by women from Gulmit.
