Pakistan Army is going to facilitate skill development training for 50 to 100 individuals in Skardu to empower people with disabilities, said Force Commander Northern Areas (FCNCA) Major General Ehsan Mehmud.
Major General Ehsan was the chief guest at an event on International Day for Persons with Disabilities, arranged by the Karakorum Disable Forum at Skardu where he said that special individuals should be economically independent.
Ehsan said that the training will be certified so that the trained individuals apply for a job backed by their ability and confidence.
He praised the efforts of Karakorum Disable Forum (KDF) and its president Hassan Balti for being active for the welfare of differently-abled people.
Commander FCNCA also awarded Rs. 360,000 to the KDF and presented gifts to its office bearers.
