MULTAN, Jan 10: The office of “Aik Hunar Aik Nagar” (AHAN), which was introduced to promote work of local artisans enabling youths for a reasonable livelihood, has been closed in the city.

According to AHAN sources, the staff has been transferred to Lahore. The programme was launched to promote blue-pottery, naqashi, camel skin work, mud-potter and hand embroidery work in Multan and its suburban areas.

The AHAN, in collaboration with the Skilled Development Fund, launched different projects to equip local artisans with latest techniques in order to improve work of artisans at Bahawalpur, Bahawalnagar, Lodhran and Muzaffargarh.

About 2,200 artisans underwent the training programme in hand-embroidery and carpet making.

The AHAN Lahore office will continue to impart training from the provincial headquarters.—APP
