The Journey of Dankash took off amidst the most difficult times a young couple can ever think of, and a journey that is now a huge success with local and international recognition.
Dankash is a Pakistani startup that was founded back in 2013 by Kashif and his wife, Dania. The company focuses on empowering individuals and organizations with talent they already possess, and how they can further enhance their skills to sell their services in domestic or international markets.
This startup is a journey that took off amidst the most difficult times a young couple can ever think of, and a journey that is now a huge success with local and international recognition.
It all started back in 2013 when Kashif and Dania were still newlyweds & were abandoned by their own families because their marriage was without their parents’ consent. With zero financial, moral or emotional support from their loved ones, the couple tried to make ends meet the best they could but were unable to do so.
A few months later they welcomed their first child and still had no stable income to support themselves. The hardships reached a point when one day, someone called Kashif to discuss a work opportunity but when the couple, along with their 18-day old infant, reached Faisalabad, that person never answered their calls.
That was the point when they both decided to embark on a journey that would not only support them but also benefit other people who find it difficult to earn a decent living for themselves because of financial & societal factors.
Dankash is an online platform that provides training, coaching, mentoring, and grooming to individuals that are either stuck in the monotony of their 9-5 schedules, or those who are not able to make the most of their skills due to various reasons.
Through detailed courses, online learning programs, video content, and live training sessions, Dankash equips people with the necessary skill set that enables them to find better job opportunities, find better freelance opportunities, or start their own businesses.
Today, the company offers tailor-made courses for social media marketing, digital marketing, freelancing tactics, e-commerce, graphic designing, content writing, and the list goes on. The students who are enrolled in these courses usually make around 2-3 lac on a frequent basis. So basically if a freelancer or a salaried individual reaches out to Dankash for skill development, they end up polishing their skills to a level where they do not have to go back to their monotonous job anymore.
Even with all the success and recognition, this organization has already achieved over its 8-year journey so far, no way the company has gone into procrastination by any means. According to the founders themselves, they dream and look forward to bringing billions of dollars in remittance into Pakistan and want individuals to easily earn around $2,000-$3,000 on a monthly basis.
To achieve this goal, Dankash works tirelessly with its 50+ workforce round the clock, empowering the skilled labor of Pakistan.
