50 young people, between 18 to 30 years of age, receive skills enhancement training in electrician and sanitary fitting courses. The group was selected from District Peshawar, Charsadda and Nowshera. The training was organized at SRSP’s Technical & Vocational Center in Peshawar, which offered a certified course from City & Guilds UK. Their team conducted post-training evaluation and certificates were distributed among the best performances. The initiative is funded by the Government of Australia under Women Economic Empowerment and Market Development (WEEMD) project.
