Alkhidmat awards certificates to successful students of Skill Development Center
Alkhidmat Karachi has awarded certificates to 40 successful students who recently completed their free, 6-month skills training courses at the Alkhidmat Skill Development Center in PIB Colony. These certificates were awarded at a ceremony held to honour successful students from the first batch of Mobile Repairing and the third batch of the General Electrical and Advanced Tailoring courses. Executive Director Alkhidmat Karachi Rashid Qureishi was the Chief Guest at the ceremony which was attended by Director Mawakhat Yousuf Muhyiuddin, Manager Mawakhat and SDC Muhammad Tariq, as well as other senior officials. Congratulating the successful students, Rashid Qureishi said that Alkhidmat was doing its best to make the youth of Karachi skilled so that they could earn a respectable livelihood for themselves. He added that although providing vocational training and employment opportunities was the government’s responsibility, Alkhidmat had taken up the challenge itself due to the government’s inability in this matter. He also expressed his pleasure that more than 70% of the students who had competed various courses from the SDC were already employed or self-employed in their respective professions, which was a sign of the success of the SDC. Speaking on the occasion, Yousuf Muhyiuddin lauded the performance of the successful students and encouraged others to take advantage of this program and learn some skills that would help them provide for themselves and their families.
