The workshops included a diverse range of participants, such as youth, members of the District Committee on the Status of Somen (DCSW), students, healthcare practitioners, madrassa teachers, and government teachers from local community-based organizations (CBOs) like Khyber Brave Sister Organization, Alam Godar Falahi Committee, Khidmat -e- Khalaq Committee, and Bismillah CBO.

The closing ceremony of the grant program was held at Alam Gudar village of Bara, with 29 community women in attendance.

These women came from various backgrounds, including youth, university graduates, healthcare practitioners, local councilors, religious leaders, and government teachers associated with local CBOs.
