‘Even the uneducated can be productive’

Senator Pervaiz Rashid has said that the people belonging to less developed areas or those who could not continue their education cannot only be made self-sufficient by providing them skills but also be made a useful member of the society.
He said this while addressing a certificate distribution ceremony among 130 trainee graduates of Punjab Skill Development Fund as a chief guest at Punjab Institute of Language, Art and Culture, here today. Chairman DESCON Abdul Razaq Dawood, Chief Executive Officer PSDF Ali Sarfraz and other prominent personalities were present on the occasion.
Rashid said that the Punjab Skill Development Fund set up with the cooperation of UK’s Department for International Development (DFID) was an important step of the Punjab government. The basic objective of this Fund was to create maximum job opportunities and eliminate poverty in Bahawalnagar, Bahawalpur, Lodhran and Muzaffargarh districts of Southern Punjab by providing technical training to the youth.
Rashid said that provision of training of skills to the people was top priority of the government so that after getting training they could put share in country’s development through their active role. While congratulating trainee graduates on completing their training course, he said that they have to further polish their skill in practical life. He said being poor or rich is not a shameful thing but being uneducated or unskilled is a matter of shame. He said the basic reason of poverty in our country is being uneducated and ignorant, therefore, we will have to make determination of acquiring knowledge or skill. He stressed upon the trainee graduates to make their best efforts for eliminating poverty from the country by utilizing their training and skill. Later, Senator Pervaiz Rashid distributed certificates among 130 trainee graduates who got training in various technical trades and also appreciated their performance.
