FCEPL hosts event in honour of women farmers, agripreneurs

ISLAMABAD - FrieslandCampina Engro Pakistan Ltd (FCEPL) hosted an event titled ‘Rural Women Rising’ in honour of women farmers and agripreneurs, on the 31st of January at a hotel in Islamabad. The theme of the event was “breaking the barriers and empowering women through dairy value chain”
The event celebrated these women, hailing from rural sites from within Sindh and Punjab, as well as their combined accolades, achievements, and ongoing journeys. These were only made possible by the guidance, training and facilitations of FCEPL’s expert field teams and their ongoing resolve for uplifting the socio-economic status of the hard-working rural women within their communities. This is indicative of FCEPL’s commitment to the UNSDG’s of gender equality, poverty alleviation and zero hunger. 
“It is incredible to witness how FrieslandCampina has changed the lives of so many of our rural women, their families and communities,” said First Lady of Pakistan, Mrs Samina Alvi who was the chief guest on the occasion, “It is evident that these women are just as valuable and capable as men in their communities and [because of FCEPL’s facilitation] they are earning much-needed livelihoods for themselves and their families.”
