MENA is a social enterprise that is making a dent in the vicious circle of poverty and begging in the slums. They work towards empowering women in slums through a low skill, easy income opportunity of manufacturing paper bags and packets. The products are supplied to high-end retail outlets, cash and carry and wholesalers. They have established themselves and scaled to two slums of Islamabad within 4 months and are aiming to cover Lahore Faisalabad and Karachi by the end of 2017. They have also, in this short span of time, established strategic partnerships with international communities such as Dreamdelion, Indonesia and NGOS such as PLAN and NRSP.
