Pakistan's leading vocational training institute, Aman Tech has launched a brand new trade geared towards the textile industry and for female participants. The Stitching Machinist course, in conjunction with USAID and Yunus Textile Mills (YTM), is Aman Tech's first demand driven course for female as well as male participants and will cater to the rising demand of the textile industry, the company said in a statement.

Mohammad Ali Tabba, CEO, Yunus Textiles Mills, endorsed Aman Tech's initiative and said: “Yunus Textile Mills' collaboration with Aman Tech and USAID for the Stitching Machinist Course is a huge step towards enhancing the lives of the underserved youth of this country. Home Textiles is amongst Pakistan's most successful businesses, and developing specialized trades to satisfy the human capital need in this industry is essential to creating employment opportunities for the underserved and further enhancing the capacity of this industry.”

Ahmar Iqbal, CEO of AmanTech, said: “Aman Tech is continuing its tradition of innovation by introducing the stitching machinist course. Aman Tech's groundbreaking partnership with USAID and YTM has the potential to change the paradigm of skills development in Pakistan. The fact that 80 per cent of the students enrolled are women shows that we are not only on the brink of changing the professional landscape of Pakistan but also simultaneously empowering women.”

Aman Tech has shifted its focus towards sustainable, demand driven, customized trades which directly appeal to specific requirements of the market. The commitment to employ 100 per cent of the graduating trainees by YTM is a pivotal step towards sustainable customized trades, the statement said. (SH)
