Empowering Women

Saba Gul grew up living a life of privilege, studying in Karachi and going on to a degree in computer science at the coveted MIT. Now she runs a business dedicated to empowering adolescent girls and lifting their families out of poverty through education and empowerment. Business and Life Skills School, or BLISS, is the result of an idea that refused to let go once it took hold of Gul. Seeing young girls drop out of school to become another source of income for their families even as she led a comfortable life didn't quite seem right to her. By starting BLISS, Gul not only managed to get hundreds of young girls—and their mothers—back into classrooms, but also figured out a way to compensate them. Read on to discover the inspiring story of Saba Gul, a StartingBloc Fellow, 2011, as well as an Unreasonable Institute Fellow, 2011, who managed to empower and create a community of artisans from the remote villages of Pakistan.
