Lack of training and employment opportunities is one of the biggest challenges for university graduates to embark on their professional journey. We pioneered a ‘Young Professional Development Programme’ under which talented and passionate individuals were selected for an internship of nine months at Islamic Relief’s offices across the country.
The primary objective of the programme was to prepare a trained pool of skilled individuals so that they can play their part for a prosperous tomorrow. Youth supported under our Orphan Sponsorship Programme were also part of the 2019 batch. The initiative yielded exceptional results as the interns were immersed and exposed to the highest levels of professional working culture and norms which later helped them in landing jobs.
