Image
Dolmen Mall, Pakistan’s first international standard mall, is famous for being at the forefront of every major national celebration. With every event, they have continued to raise the bar when it comes to family entertainment and shopping in Karachi.

As our Independence Day approaches, we see the city changing itself to represent the colors of Pakistan, and Dolmen did not stay behind in giving its visitors a flavor of patriotism. This year, their theme, ‘Dolmen loves Pakistan’, was weaved around the concept of #HamariPehchan aimed at giving people a chance to celebrate Pakistan’s identity. Spanning across all three malls, namely Dolmen Mall Clifton, Dolman Mall Tariq Road and Dolmen Mall Hyderi, the event kicked off on 12th of August 2016.

Living in a time where there is so much uncertainty and negativity surrounding our identity as a nation, we wanted to celebrate the achievements and entertainment aspects of Pakistan which we are known for. These things are relate-able to the older …

"Creating a world that is truly fit for children does not imply simply the absence of war. It means having the confidence that our children would not die of measles or malaria. It means having access to clean water and proper sanitation. It means having primary schools nearby that educate children, free of charge. It means changing the world with children, ensuring their right to participate, and that their views are heard and considered. It means building a world fit for children, where every child can grow to adulthood in health, peace and dignity."
- Carol Bellamy, Chairman of the Global Community Engagement and Resilience Fund
Children are precious and it’s our collective duty to take care of this beautiful part of our existence as they carry hope and happiness for us as a society. Children’s health is a big concern across the globe and we have many national and international initiatives specifically targeted towards keeping our children healthy, safe and to provide them …

Technology has revolutionized every part of our lives but most of all, it has changed the way we work. Started from the inclusion of computer systems in the workplace to Management Information Systems and now Cloud Solutions, Technology has made things faster, easier and more accessible for all of us.
Apart from managing business processes, it has also changed the way we hire and collaborate with other professionals. The new business model is the Outsourcing model and with the increase in the available internet bandwidth, the work desk has gradually shifted from a corporate office to the freelancer’s home.

#MarhamBano : The Making of the App!

Image
“Holding the phone and walking around with a thousand worries running in my head was depressing”, said Ehsan Imam, Co-founder Marham. He was trying to book an appointment with a physician for his father, but after many attempts was still unsuccessful. In that moment, on the verge of tears, was when he felt the pain and helplessness of seeing a loved one in need.

Looking back at his career filled with success and praise, he realized that in his want of achieving something better, he had forgotten the people that had always been there to support him, his family.

It made him think, why not contribute and build something for our own home, but how? Sleepless and worried, he left his job in search for an answer. It was then that he came across, many people with similar mindsets willing to create a platform that could revolutionize the healthcare industry of Pakistan.

With the help and support of his previous employers, the Vice President of Confiz, Ehsan Imam began to set up and equip his offi…

Image
As women, juggling the many roles life throws our way, it’s true that just a single day can never be enough to celebrate women or cherish their many attributes and contributions to society, in general, and men, in particular. Though it’s good to have a day to say it out loud and tell women how special they are!
For this women’s day, Enchante’ has launched a campaign to celebrate all these special women who are working tirelessly in their specific domains and doing extraordinary things. The campaign covered women from fields like fashion to education and art to technology.

Did You Help Someone Today? #MarhamBano

Image
When we get sick, we search for a good doctor. Sometimes the general physician isn’t enough. Sometimes we need a doctor who specializes in treating a particular part of our bodies. There are also quacks working in the market. This makes the search very complicated and all we have at our hands is to the suggestions of our friends and relatives. Their advice, however sincere, is based on their limited knowledge, which sometimes helps but mostly doesn’t. 



The creators of Marham, aware of these limits, have created a virtual platform to connect doctors and patients directly leaving no room for doubts. Most of us who don’t have any knowledge of our healthcare system can now use their smartphones and computers to connect with an active group of 12,000 people, of which 5,000 are doctors. Marham, literally, brings the doctors of our city on our finger tips.







Marham is empowering people by enabling them to make informed health decisions. It is a community based initiative and your experiences, wh…
