What is Jiddat?

Jiddat’ means “Innovation” in Urdu, the language of Pakistan. It is the name given to KVTC’s line of Women’s Apparel that has already seen 2 successful sold out exhibitions in Karachi. With professional help and dedicated teachers, ID trainees make high quality block-printed suits, scarves, palazzos, pants, & other women’s apparel, pack them, and eventually help sell them in exhibitions.

This gives them a complete learning experience in entrepreneurship and customer service (2 of many key skills our trainees are able to use when they get employed in companies like HSBC, Attock Petroleum, & Unilever Pakistan), but most importantly, an income and a means to independence. Finally, Jiddat also contributes towards the ever-mounting expenses of running the Centre itself, providing rehabilitation services to over 140 trainees at highly subsidized rates.
