Aimed at the development of society and the country, the ‘Women Entrepreneurship Project’ of Caritas Pakistan, Karachi, has trained so far 966 young boys and girls and is looking for more in the future.
Caritas Pakistan, Karachi organized a Youth Employment Project (YEP) in collaboration with the Technology Upgrade Skill Company (TUSDEC) and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP). Young girls and boys were invited to attend professional training of ‘Call Center Agent’ and ‘Sales Assistants’.
Around 100 youth successfully completed the training. The certificate distribution ceremony was held on Oct 10, at Nafisa Wilson Research and Training Center. Reverend Father Nazar Nawab (Parish Priest St. Paul’s Parish) attended the ceremony as Chief Guest and awarded certificates to 15 successful trainees.
Appreciating the efforts of Caritas Pakistan, Karachi for the development of youth, Father Nazar said the economic crisis in the world is increasing day by day, there are no jobs. He said if our young people do not progress, society cannot progress, the development of society plays a vital role in determining the path of development of the country. Caritas is providing a great opportunity to youth to not only be skilled but also to provide them with jobs which is a great job in this era.
Father urged all women and young people to take full advantage of this opportunity and to support themselves and their families so that the purpose of the training can be fulfilled and they strive to remain strong in their faith, not to feel overwhelmed. “Do not think of your weakness, God has made you superior, so always maintain hard work, honesty and integrity in your social and economic life,” father advised.
Speaking on the occasion, Emilia Shanell – a successful trainee expressed her thoughts, saying that the training has been very beneficial to us and we see its importance clearly in our professional and practical life. This training has also contributed to our personal development that’s why our confidence and behavior have been changed and communication skills are practically visible in our lives.
Another trainee, Anoush Parvez expressed his views and said I have got the job of sales assistant and skills I learnt in training will help me to move forward in new ways.
Mansha Noor or Caritas Pakistan, Karachi congratulated all the successful trainees and said “this training was the first step to your destination and you will have to climb more stairs to reach your destination, which requires your dedication and interest.” Mansha Noor thanked Father Nazar Nawab, saying that his participation was very encouraging to the young trainees.
