KARACHI - City District Government Karachi (CDGK) has established Pakistans first Industrial and Technical Institute in Korangi in partnership with World Memon Organisation (WMO). The institute will impart technical education to more than 4,000 uneducated and unskilled youths annually in 30 different trades. The 24-week training would enable them to get jobs up to Rs15,000 remuneration. Inaugurating the institute on Sunday night, Nazim Karachi Mustafa Kamal had announced to establish such institutes in all 18 towns of Karachi. The inaugural ceremony was attended by president of World Memon Organisation Haji Abdul Razzaq Yaqoob, Amin Chappel, Shoaib Ismail, Abubakar Qasim, Pir Muhammad Kalia, Aqeel Karim Dhedhi, HM Shahzad, Ashraf Machiara, Ahmed Chinoy, MNA Abdul Rasheed Godel, Asif Hussnain, members of provincial assembly, Nazim Korangi Town Arif Khan advocate and a large number of representatives from trade and business community. Kamal said that he had been told by the organisers that the youth would only had to pay Rs500 as fees for the course while the expenditures incurred on their training will be Rs2,100. Those students who are unable to pay even Rs500 will get fee exemption and the organisation will arrange for the expenditures. He said that despite of all the hurdles and oppositions they had entered into a public private partnership agreement with WMO for establishment of this institute because they thought it would be beneficial for the poor and middle class youths. He expressed hope that this institute would bring about revolution in the field of technical education not only in Karachi but in whole province and country. We want to set up such institutes in every nook and corner of Karachi so that the jobless, uneducated and unskilled youth of our country could be made useful citizens, he added. Kamal called it unfortunate that the land mafia was occupying precious land in the City and due to legal complications the land could not be used for public welfare projects. Paying tribute to office bearers of WMO for establishment of the institute, he said that other communities living in Karachi should also come forward and play their role in resolving social and financial problems of the City. He said that latest technology and skills were need of the hour and the institute would also start offering training courses for women in next three months. President of WMO, Haji Abdul Razzaq Yaqoob, paid tribute to nazim for completing mega projects in a short period. He said that the Memon community was ready to cooperate and help in the development and progress of the City. Amin Chappel, HM Shahzad, Shaib Ismail, Pir Muhammad Kalia and others also addressed the ceremony.
