Ministry of Textile Industry (MINTEX) Government of Pakistan has launched a Skill Development Project with collaboration of International Labor Organization (ILO) and Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA).

The training program’s main objective is provision of skilled workforce to Textile Industry to make it more competitive and export oriented and to uplift the economic status and living standard of trainees especially women through their employment based skill development.  
 
MINTEX will cover the costs incurred in the areas of trainee stipend, trainer’ salary, raw material cost, social mobilization   (through News paper advertisement web Portal, banners, posters etc), evaluation cost and certificate printing &distribution.  The admissions in the skill development program have started from 15th September 2012 and classes would start from 1st October 2012.
