10th December, 2011 In the aftermath of the devastating floods of 2010, many people were left stranded without shelter and solid jobs to meet their living requirements. In the light of this harsh reality, PSU-Prime proposed the need for a vocational training center, specifically catering to the needs of the women who were victims of this natural calamity. The main aim of the vocational training center, located in Nowshera, is capacity building of the women affected by the flood by imparting entrepreneurial skills to them so that they may be able to use these skills for running micro enterprises, i.e., beauty care, tailoring, and embroidery.

With the grace of Allah, three batches of the VTC have successfully completed their training. To conclude the training of the 3rdbatch a certificate distribution ceremony was held at the center which also served as a commencement ceremony for the incoming 4th batch. The chief guest for the ceremony was the Principal of Vocational training Institute Nowshera, MR. Amjad Shah, while the guest of honor was the Vice-Principal Mrs. Nazish Karim. A Project introduction was presented by Dr. Saeed Anwar, Director PSU-Prime in which he outline the altruist services provided by the foundation for the for people of KPK, displaced by natural calamities and conflicts. Mr. Amjad Shah, in his address, lauded the program labeling it as a helpful initiative. He also expressed satisfaction with the training being imparted and revealed that the quality of the training is evident by the successful completion of the trade testing board registration exam by the previous trainees of the centerwho exceled in the exam.In her address, the guest of honor, Mrs. Nazish Karim, bucked up the trainees with examples from her vast experience in vocational training and motivated them to use the skills learned in the training for earning livelihood for their families. She urged the trainees to work hard at perfecting their art and to prove as an example for others in their community so that they can also take interest in vocational skills.

In the end, certificates and kits were distributed among the successful trainees by Mr. Amjad Shah Mrs. Nazish Karim, and Dr Faisal Ali Shah, Project Officer PSU. The certificates provided to the trainees specifically outlined their training in health education, which can be helpful to them in the future for undertaking roles in community health education. In addition, the kits provided to the outgoing trainees consisted of items such as sewing machines, irons, streamers and other items essential for their respective beauty care, embroidery and tailoring fields. The items provided are going to be instrumental in helping the trainees establish their own businesses.
