INVESTING

IN YOUTH

Our 9 months internship programme trained 35 graduates in 2019 by providing them with a strong foundation for their future.

ECONOMIC

EMPOWERMENT
OF YOUTH

We made concrete efforts for youth empowerment in newly merged tribal districts of Pakistan through economic opportunities.

It was always a dream to have my own business. When we returned to our village, there was no infrastructure, opportunity, and hope. Getting training for business followed by a grant was unbelievable. Tips and techniques learned through the training will help me in running a successful business. I believe now I can rebuild the lives of my family members.
