ATN feels that economic empowerment of women through Self-Employement in Pakistan will act as a catalyst for reducing the social dependency of women. It will increase their access to education, health facilities, and employment opportunities through which they can assume greater control over their own lives.More
ATN is working to enhance women through micro finance small loans. The loans are given to women who are already engaged in self employed work in order to minimize the role of middle man, and to provide education, information , micro-credit financing, technology transfer and management skills. We also organize exhibitions for the display of these self-employed women's products.

All through my academic life, as a student and later as a teacher it’s been 54 years now, I have studied various aspects related to the growth and development of Karachi. As a born citizen of Karachi, I have witnessed catastrophic events that have changed the face of Karachi and to a certain extent halted its growth too.
I feel saddened to see that Karachi has yet to appear as a theme for academic study in the syllabi of teaching institutions of the city, including its pioneering university, the University of Karachi. I am convinced that to change the city for better, one needs to change attitudes of the people towards the city. The most suitable audience for this change are the students and the younger people. Therefore, I have started Karachi studies cell and collecting research material about it, which consists of books and documents related to Karachi, so please if you have any material regarding it please share it with me, it will be really appreciated.
