THROW BACK TO SHE LOVES TECH 2019
After receiving 100+ applications nationwide, CIRCLE’s team of 6 women traveled a distance of 2,025km through Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad, Abbottabad and Peshawar, to inspire women to believe in themselves. The team was joined by a group of like-minded and motivated individuals who were dedicated to the purpose of up-lifting women in Pakistan and helping them break barriers.
