Prime Minister’s Youth Skill Development Scheme is the best revolutionary program aiming at enabling youth and poor segments of the population to secure jobs and employment. This was stated by the Executive Director National Vocational & Technical Training Commission (NAVTTC), Zulfiqar Ahmad Cheema, while addressing a ceremony at Anjuman-i-Faizul Islam Technical Training Institute as the chief guest. “We will train the fatherless children/orphans in the most demand driven trades under this program and make them useful citizens of the country”, he said. Caressing the head of an orphan for the pleasure of Allah is one of the noblest acts, he added.
He praised the steps taken by Anjuman Faizul Islam for the betterment of orphans. Not only we impart training to the youth but we also make efforts to secure employment for them once they complete their training, he said. Moreover, we also facilitate the trained youth to get interest free loans from the government if any of them are interested in setting up their own businesses. He also stressed upon enhancing the quality of training.
President Anjuman Faizul Islam Mian Siddique Akbar briefed the executive director about the activities and performance of the institute.
In the end, Zulfiqar Cheema distributed certificates amongst the passing out trainees.
