UNHCR Announces Technical Training for Afghan Refugees

The UNHCR, in partnership with the National Vocational and Technical Training Commission (NAVTTC), has announced technical skills training opportunities for 2,500 Pakistanis and Afghan refugees.

The three to six-month trainings will be offered at NAVTTC-recognized institutes across Pakistan. Certificates and tool kits will be provided upon completion in order to enable students to seize livelihood opportunities.

“UNHCR supports these trainings to empower young people so that they can find a decent living and become productive members of society,” said UNHCR’s Deputy Representative in Pakistan Iain Hall, adding “we encourages ambitious youth to come forward and apply online on the NAVTTC website by April 30, 2020 to be considered for this valuable training.”

Previously, more than 3,500 Pakistanis and Afghan refugees have been trained since 2018.
