This project will build the capacities of Afghan refugee's youth in Pakistan. PEDO will provide free vocational technical skill trainings to Afghan youth in refugee camps and outside camps to restore their confidence and equip them with tools through which, they can immediately start earning their own bread and help the rebuilding process in Afghanistan.
Most of the Afghan refugee's youth living in camps and outside camps in Pakistan are involved in non-technical trades such as petty jobs, laboring etc. This issue gives rise to unemployment, poverty, drugs addiction, militancy, and violence. Since the fall of Taliban rule in Afghanistan, the country is re-building on a very fast pace. There is a big demand of skilled labour class in the country to support the rebuilding process.
PEDO has started to build the capacities of more than 500 Afghan refugee's boys and girls in Pakistan each year through its project of HYTEC Institute of Technology. PEDO provides training courses in trades such as computer hardware and software, electrician, plumbing, mason, heavy construction machinery operations, auto mobiles, tailoring, medical and reproductive health care. PEDO also provides tool kits and busines startup capital to the graduating interns. Let us help rebuild Afghanistan.

I feel confident now that I am able to support my family. This is really a great sense of pleasure for me. Now when I will return to my motherland I will be able to work for my country in a better way - "Fazal Manan", Afghan refugee boy intern in Electrician trade
