United States Agency for International Development (USAID), as part of the $3 million Youth Employment Programme, is working with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) to train youth in Karachi to help them generate income and provide employment opportunities, according to Pakistani media reports.

The programme trains young men and women, while helping local trainers do a better job.  Under the initiative, youth employment issues are advocated and a research is also conducted.

After his visit to RO Gul Ahmed textile factory, John Groake, mission director, USAID, said, “I was very impressed by the perseverance and accomplishments of the trainees I met today. USAID is proud to support these young women and men in developing skills that will help them build a more secure future for themselves and their families.”

The UNDP has inked agreements with four apparel and home textile companies including Gul Ahmed Textile Mills, Eastern Garments, Soorty Enterprises, and Kings Apparel along with ten vocational training institutes.

The programme aims to provide technical skills required in the apparel and home textiles industry to 13,760 youth and women from marginalised households in Karachi. (HO)
