Muhammad Asim, an energetic 28-year-old young boy was struggling to get a job. He had studied up to Intermediate (high-school) but had no skills that could make him employable. He was desperate as he wanted to support his father who was a carpenter earning a menial wage. Asim met one of HDF’s social organizers who told him about the newly launched technical training program to help youth learn and update their skills according to the needs of the job market. After contacting the Village Development Organization (VDO) he joined the six month long Basic Computer course. Soon after completion of the course, Asim was employed earning a salary enough to meet his educational expenses.
Asim decided to complete his graduation (B.A) and also enrolled into an advanced computer course to further improve his skills while working at a lawyer’s office. Currently, he is working as a Customer Relation Officer for a mobile company and earning enough to support his family.
My achievement is due to my mother’s prayers and the support of HDF. Without the backing of HDF, I would have been educated but with zero skills and hence, unemployed. They taught me the right skills which made me relevant for the current job market. Thank you HDF!
