PESHAWAR, November 21: A nine-month training course on marble and its cutting, organised by the FATA Development Authority (FDA), has concluded in the provincial capital Peshawar.
About 53 students, after getting trained, were provided certificates at the concluding ceremony.
The Skills Development Manager of FDA, Mr Mian Aftab Ali Shah, chaired the concluding ceremony and distributed certificates among the trainees.
On the occasion, Mr Aftab Ali claimed that about 10,000 tribal students would be given trainings on skills development in various fields under the programme. He said that 7,000 students had been trained in the current year so far.
“This training would facilitate the students in a way that if they could not pursue higher studies, they would at least be able to run their businesses in future. Besides, they can also apply for various jobs and can even go abroad on the basis of experience gained in the training. Previously, we used to give training to about 1500 or 1600 students under the programme but we are now asked to train 10,000 students. I request youth of FATA to avail this opportunity by submitting their applications,” he added.
