Apr '10
The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) through its Pakistan JOBS Project has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Pakistan Readymade Garments and Technical Training Institute (PRGTTI) in Karachi. The agreement provides training to technical workers in the readymade garments industry.

The five month training program, 'Apparel and Home Textile Training,' is focused on industrial sewing machines and their repair/maintenance, steps of order processes, quality control, drafting skills and manufacturing processes. The program will train 320 youth in two batches of 160 each. These trainees will be placed in jobs based on hiring commitments of employers in the readymade garment industry.

“The aim of this project is to generate private sector jobs that will increase income for both job seekers and the enterprises that need their skills” said Brian Cavanagh, Chief of Party for JOBS Project. “Our partnerships with PRGTTI and employers will not only identify the immediate workforce needs and skill requirements within the garment industry in Karachi but ultimately will contribute to improving the competitiveness of the Pakistani economy by strengthening the overall workforce development system.”

Commending USAID, Maham Siddique, Principal for Pakistan Readymade Garments and Technical Training Institute said, “It is a great initiative, and such projects will really contribute in strengthening the economy of our country by generating income at the enterprise level. The progress will be slow and steady, but predictable.”

The trainings have recently been launched in advance of this MoU signing.

PRGTTI is project of Ministry of Textile Industry - Government of Pakistan & Pakistan Readymade Garments Manufacturers and Exporters Association (PRGMEA).
