ISLAMABAD: A batch of 18 graduates and under-graduates studying at various universities


across Pakistan were awarded certificates at the closing ceremony of the Pakistan Poverty


Alleviation Fund Summer Internship Program.


The ten-day long program enabled interns to gain insight into dynamics of the development


sector with focus on PPAF working model. The Internship Program was delivered in two phases


comprising of in-house training sessions and field visits. While the in-house sessions provided


information on various components under which PPAF carries out development projects for


marginalized communities, the field exposure provided students with on ground experience and


knowledge about challenges-and opportunities, encountered by PPAF, its implementation


partners and the communities themselves.


The interns visited PPAF-supported interventions in Multan, Muzaffargarh, Abbottabad and


Haripur where they learnt about implementation strategies, impact and sustainability of different


projects including institutional development, livelihood, education, community infrastructure and


micro-credit interventions.
