Who we are and what inspired us

About Us

We offer Professional Training primarily the youth of Pakistan, and around the world.

Intoduction

Faculty and staff on the technology collaboration team in our organization wants to help increase technology use among the youth of Pakistan in an effort to achieve hands-on and effective learning of the use of technology. Students thrive on technology every day – it has become a main source of socialization among youth. The technology collaboration team plans to conduct a hands-on technology training for a minimum of 500K youth. Training youth to use more technology and current technologies better will increase technology use in the country. Students will find new methods of creating student motivation, connecting with other students, and meeting their financial goals.
After the successful completion of the Website Development Workshop training, graduates of this program will be able to make their living easily by creating production-quality responsive websites from PKR 5K to 50K per website. Trainees will be able to offer their services on social platforms to get the customers from within Pakistan and abroad to bring a good chunk of foreign exchange into the country.

CONTEXT
Pakistan’s youth face daunting challenges of unemployment due to which the country and youth cannot reach their potential. Pakistan has a large youth population. An estimated 103 million or 63% of the population fall under the age of 25 years. Due to endemic poverty, the majority of youth in Pakistan do not have the opportunity to experience a childhood. Male youth literacy rate is estimated to be 53% and female youth literacy rate is even lower at 42%, while 15% of the youth is unemployed which is a significant figure.

Need Analysis

Despite constituting a major chunk of the population, Pakistani youth are lagging behind in every field. They have a major role to play in country’s progress however due to lack of support they are facing many new challenges in today’s society: they are afflicted by an identity crisis, lack of self-confidence, a sense of hopelessness and confusion, and ambiguity concerning about moral issues and the future. They have been trapped in a culture marked by guns, violence, and drugs. All this has resulted in an unstable economy, a shattered confidence of foreign investors, lawlessness and a break-up of the social fabric.

The most profound problem Pakistani youth is facing at present is frustration. This monster is eating up our youth slowly and gradually. The youth in Pakistan don’t have jobs, means of healthy entertainment, health resources and awareness. The frustration as a result of a multitude of problems is increasing day by day.

Education is the most powerful weapon of the youth. With it, they could lead their country towards progress. Unfortunately, quality and skill-based education is still a dream for Pakistani youth, especially for the poor. There is no formal guidance for students in the logical selection of a specific course of study. There is no unified education system. Pakistani universities and colleges have become degree distributing machines. Education does not mean only degrees but in its true sense, it is the future of the youth.
