Special focus was paid to reaching marginalised communities of women.

Accordingly, wecamp partnered with The SEED Program to expand opportunities to twenty women entrepreneurs from KP at the festival. Participation of women in the labour forces is 1/4th of the men’s participation in the labour force. Women face mobility and cultural challenges to advance their careers and entrepreneurial pursuits.

The marketplace and festivals by wecamp are initiatives towards reducing such gender inequalities in Pakistan.
