Encouraging youth via road shows

Published Jan 10, 2013 12:08am

ON Jan 6 I was part of the three road shows held in Khipro, Shahpur Chakar and Sanghar city. Each road show was of 30 minutes and these were also broadcast live on various FM channels.

The purpose of these shows was to make the youths in remote areas aware of their natural skills which they can further polish with training. The road show was arranged by the Benazir Bhutto Shaheed Youth Development Programme that has already given training to 150,000 youths in different trades in the province.

During the three road shows thousands of youths submitted their forms seeking training according to their choice. The crowd was very energetic and showed great enthusiasm. No doubt, the concept of such road shows was an interesting and eye- catching way to attract youths.
