There are therapy sessions and workshops focused on self discovery, relationships, entrepreneurship, leadership and networking that aims to groom and aplomb women, along with camping and a movie night planned.

According to Tripkar,

The aim of this event is to provide a break to women belonging to different walks of life including young girls (students), working women and mothers. There isn’t any travel company in Pakistan which is working on similar lines: to address a cause and spread awareness about the local travel and tourism industry. So, stepped ahead to work for the society and build tourism through fun and engaging activities.

The concept behind the program is basically to celebrate womanhood and gender equity, rather than gender equality (as preached by SHE – our collaborative organization) in a way that is unique and fun! It will not only provide a chance to mingle and network but will also broaden the horizon of women who will accompany us on the trip.

PC World Pakistan & IDG are proud to be backing the event with support as Knowledge & Technology Media Partners. Commenting on the partnership, Aqsa Mughees (Tripkar) said:

 IDG is playing a significant role in promoting a positive image of Pakistan and we are absolutely pleasured to have IDG on-board as our media partner. We hope that we are able to work together in future as well for such programs and bring out the best of young talent in Pakistan.
