Success Story of Imran
September - December, 2012
Since there was great need and requirement to train the Afghan refugee’s youth in different skills so that when they return to their country they can contribute to the rebuilding of their national. In order to work on this PEDO launched a project to train Afghan Youth (boys and girls) in these two institutes established by PEDO. PEDO launched the project on GlobalGiving and with generous support of more than 60 donors PEDO was able to generate $4,000 US in a very short time.
Success Story of Imran, an Afghan boy, who has started his own generator repairing business. Imran learned the skills to repair generators in HYTEC Institute of Technology and learned to repair generators in a period of three months. After completing his course with HYTEC he opened his own workshop and now he is a most busiest workshop owner in the area. On average he earns $4000 US per month. In the 2nd batch of skill training at HYTEC Institute of Technology, established by PEDO, 20 Afghan Refugee boys enrolled in 3 months electrician trade course. The course has been completed 30th December, 2012. On the completion of the course PEDO organized a certificate distribution ceremony, which was chaired by Mr. Haji Yarmast Khan, Patron in Chief of PEDO. Some of the students have returned back to Afghanistan and have started using their newly learned skills, while few have started working as interns in the local industry and further improving their skills. One student has opened his small maintenance workshop of home electric appliances in Peshawar with a micro finance support linked by PEDO.
PEDO team is highly thankful to its donors, whose generous support helped PEDO to get this success. PEDO is hopeful to get its aims and objective of the project through constant support of its donors. PEDO also welcome all suggestions for improvement.
