As part of Telenor Asia’s 25th Anniversary, our Game Changer interviews celebrate women and men in Asia that Telenor has supported in their quests to harness the power of connectivity for the benefit of their communities.
Tanzila Khan is recognized for her activism for women and disabled persons’ rights—but also for founding a game-changing startup in Pakistan, GirlyThings.pk. The platform gives access to women’s health products and information in a country where these are hard to come by. It allows fast, anonymous delivery of authentic products while also educating communities to reduce stigma. And thanks to Tanzila’s global profile, GirlyThings.pk is now looking to spread beyond Pakistan.
In addition to Girlythings.pk, Tanzila is a popular content creator. Through short films and social posts, she sheds light on the joys and tribulations of being a woman with a disability both in Pakistan and during her travels abroad. Moreover, she is an alumnus of Telenor Pakistan’s Open Mind program, an initiative to improve access to employment for persons with disabilities.
