An MoU has been signed between Archroma, a global leader in colour and specialty chemicals, and Ethical Affair, a knowledge-based platform striving to provide training, skills development and technical assistance to women entrepreneurs in Pakistan textile industry.
The MoU signed in port city of Karachi will allow Archroma to play a pivotal role to impart technical know-how, training and re-training through active platform of Ethical Affair. Women Entrepreneurs will be provided a tool kit in areas such as technical know-how pertaining to textiles from initial to final stage, international textile market features, sustainability development, or understanding cost and value creation for local and foreign markets.
“Empowering women entrepreneurs to enter into the mainstream will certainly add value coupled with creativity for the textile industry. Women are already taking initiatives in establishing their own businesses especially in the last five years. What they presently ask for is technical training and hands on experience,” Mujtaba Rahim, CEO of Archroma Pakistan said in a statement issued by the organization.
“At Archroma Center of Excellence in Karachi, women will be able to learn to apply textile dyes and chemicals suited for their purpose. Their innovation can turn into success stories beyond expectation,” added Shaheen Khan, President of Ethical Affair.
