QUETTA: The Technical and Vocational Education and Training Reform Sector Support Programme (TVET-SSP) handed over the first consignment of 720 hospital beds, complete with mattresses, pillows and 1,440 bedspreads to the Balochistan government at a ceremony here on Friday.

These supplies, provided by the EU, Germany, Norway and the federal government on a request of the Balochistan government, will help strengthen healthcare facilities in Balochistan.

The Balochistan Health Department will distribute these supplies to hospitals across the province according to their needs in coordination with Manzil Organisation, a Quetta-based organisation which specialises in providing vocational and technical training to young people.

With technical and financial assistance from the TVET Sector Support Programme, 60 girls and 80 boys are being trained in the province.

This initiative is part of an ongoing Workplace-Based Training (WBT) approach being implemented in Balochistan and Sindh to prepare young people for the labour market. A special training fund for Sindh and Balochistan has been allocated under the TVET Sector Support Programme.

Under the programme, 18,000 young men and women will receive practice-oriented workplace-based training.
