Girls From Orangi Town To Receive Free Digital Training
The minister expressed his delight that girls from Orangi Town, long known as South Asia’s largest slum, will now receive free digital training.
The Federal Minister for Telecommunications and Information Technology opened a free digital training school in Karachi’s Orangi Town neighbourhood on Thursday, in collaboration with the Sindh Education Commission and Telecom Foundation.
The minister expressed his delight that girls from Orangi Town, long known as South Asia’s largest slum, will now receive free digital training. Girls who complete the CS programming course would be capable of earning $80 to $150 per hour working online, according to him.
According to the minister, there is no mobile phone production company in Pakistan, yet 29 companies are continuing to work to assist consumers in making money through low-cost phones.
Telecom Foundation Region Head, Mr. Azam Khan, revealed that there is no tuition fee for this training, and girls will get free training in this digital school located in Orangi Town.
The head also promised that this school will take more initiatives in Orangi Town in the future. Such training will help girls and empower women in society. In recent times, youth have been more focused on freelancing work and learning the skills to earn more in the global market.
The first digital school in Karachi has been opened with the cooperation of the Sindh Education Commission and Telecom Foundation.
This school will teach girls who would not otherwise have the resources or opportunities to learn digital skills such as computer programming, web development, and digital marketing.
The school’s mission is to promote gender equality and close the digital divide for girls by providing them with access to digital education. The school will help empower girls by providing them with the skills they need to succeed in the digital age, as well as equal opportunities to participate in the digital economy as boys. This initiative will also help increase women’s participation in the traditionally male-dominated technology sector.
