Federal Minister for Information and Technology Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui has announced to develop a mobile application to empower women via technology.
As per reports, the app would be similar to an online portal and will offer guidance to women on their rights and help them become independent. It will provide information about Pakistan’s laws, scholarships, women’s education, and job opportunities.
The app will also help women locate nearby hospitals, women police stations, educational institutions and hostels.
The ‘Beti app’ will work as a platform for existing women empowerment programs executed by the public and private sector.
The Federal Minister for IT has directed to develop the app as soon as possible.
