Kashf Foundation is the one of the leading micro-finance providers in Pakistan, with special outreach to women headed businesses. Rehaii, is Kashf Foundation’s attempt to mainstream the obstacles faced by women and girls in Pakistan, including forced marriage, domestic violence, and lack of economic opportunity and to start a dialogue around addressing these obstacles. Rehaii calls for change and suggests how economic investment in these women can lift a family out of poverty and give women greater power and dignity within their families.
