British Council announces Rs200m investment in Pakistan
The Developing Inclusive and Creative Economies (DICE) programme will be delivered across five priority countries; Pakistan, South Africa, Egypt, Indonesia and Brazil as well as the UK. To address challenges in emerging economies, the British Council programme draws on two of the UK’s key assets; social enterprise and the creative industries.
The DICE Fellowship aims to help 600 social and creative entrepreneurs, of which there will be 300 women leaders, develop through a programme delivered by the School of Leadership across 12 cities in Pakistan, according to a press release issued on Sunday.
The creative industries alone contribute over £75 billion to the UK economy and 1.8 million jobs. As many as 70,000 social enterprises contribute £24 billion to the UK economy and sustain over one million jobs.
