AJK Minister for Youth, Sports and Culture AJK Ch. Saeed said here on Monday that empowering women with education and skills were the top priority of the incumbent government since it consider it the key to bring about the positive change in the society.
“To ensure the economic empowerment of the women folk, there should be equal focus on skill development through vocational trainings in addition to providing educational opportunities”, he said that while addressing the concluding session of Three days Leadership Training for Women in Mirpur, hosted by Kashmir Institute of International Relations – renowned NGO of AJK.
“It is necessary that women are educated, well aware, and skilled. It is practically not possible for any government to accommodate everyone in government jobs; therefore people should be encouraged to explore alternative means of employment through small scale industry and businesses thereby creating employment opportunities for others as well,” Saeed emphasized.
This training workshop was part of the series of leadership trainings for women organized by the Women Wing of Kashmir Institute of International Relations.
