A couple of years ago, Khud provided a platform in one of our collaborating schools for girls from low-income communities. The girls not only learned the relevant digital skills but practically implemented those by developing a fashion news aggregator website, called Aletere. The website was a huge success, garnering about 150,000-page views. However, due to some logistical issues, the project could not be continued for long. We took that as a learning experience and were back at it, with renewed optimism and an enhanced plan.
