At TANA Netting, we strongly believe in the importance of women empowerment and in providing equal opportunities to women at all levels of our organization.
Our state-of-the-art manufacturing facility at H. Sheikh Noor-ud-Din & Sons (HSNDS) in Pakistan includes a production unit for insecticidal nets and curtains which is completely managed and run by women. The unit, which currently accommodates 200 female workers, will continue to expand throughout the year, reaching a potential strength of 500 workers by the end of 2017.
The unit forms a central part of the production process of our DawaPlus® 2.0 Long-Lasting Insecticidal Nets (LLINs). The women will undertake the stitching of the nets, of which six million are produced each month, and then the subsequent folding and packaging. The female-friendly space provides a clean, air conditioned working environment, and dedicated washrooms.
It has been proven that gender equality and female empowerment are fundamental to the realization of human rights, economic growth and key to effective and sustainable development outcomes. We provide and promote women opportunities to enter and strengthen our workplace which is opening a door to a brighter future for women, families and for future generations to come.
