ISLAMABAD: The federal government has launched a six month technical training programme for tribal youth.
According to a spokesman of Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) Development Authority, the youth will be trained in different trades including civil survey, draftsman, electrician, installation of solar power generation system and basic computer course.
The youth will also be provided free boarding and lodging besides monthly stipends during the training.
It is apropos to mention that earlier this month, Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi directed the minister for law and justice to fast track legislative and administrative measures for mainstreaming of FATA.
He said this while chairing a high-level meeting of National Committee on the Implementation of FATA Reforms.
The prime minister directed the new measures so that the people of tribal areas could have access to the fundamental rights at par with the people in rest of the country.
