This project will be implemented in Kashmore and Badin to increase employability and provide access to alternate livelihood options for 300 most vulnerable and disadvantaged youth in rural Sindh. The project aims to pilot an integrated, demand-led and innovative TVET model in Sindh and assess the feasibility for its replication within the Pakistani labour market. This action will see ACTED achieving three results: 1. 300 disadvantaged and vulnerable youth have access to four VET centres in their vicinities; 2. 300 disadvantaged and vulnerable youth are enrolled to learn skills in four VET centres and successfully graduate and 3. 300 disadvantaged and vulnerable youth are ready to transition and have improved opportunities to integrate the formal/informal labour market.
