A toolkits handover ceremony was organized at a hotel in Islamabad to provide electrician toolkits to more than 60 returning migrants and local people of Pakistan.
Technical and Vocational Education and Training Sector Support Programme (TVET SSP) is facilitating the reintegration of returnees under its component, ‘Reintegration of Returnees in Pakistan’, which is funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).
Olaf Handloegten, Head of TVET Sector Support Programme and Cluster Coordinator Sustainable Economic Development, Training and Employment (CASEDTE) GIZ Pakistan, expressed his views while addressing the beneficiaries, “The German Development Cooperation has always considered skills development in Pakistan to be essential and the impact it can create on the social and economic development of this country is potentially immense.
A steady economy depends on the economic stability of its workers, specifically in the informal sector. Supporting small businesses and self-employment through the provision of in-kind support is definitely a step in the right direction.
We are hopeful that our intervention areas related to Career & Entrepreneurship Advisory Services, and Employment Promotion will continue to be fruitful for the beneficiaries in Pakistan.” The beneficiaries were trained in a full-day workshop on Career & Entrepreneurship Advisory prior to the in-kind support handover ceremony.
