E-Rozgaar Turns 3: A Novel Opportunity to Become Freelancer
E-Rozgaar is the platform that has raised the need for ending youth unemployment. Project initiated by CM of Punjab with coordination of Punjab Information Technology Board (PITB) and Youth Affairs, Sports, Archeology, and Tourism Department in March 2017. This program provides training opportunities using internet-based freelancing to youth for self-employment, making them freelancers.
“The program was launched to equip young graduates to increase their employability. Youth are playing a vital role in the development of the country after equipping themselves with education. Students should focus solely on education, as the government will bear all the expenses [of the training].” said by honorable Chief Minister.
For three years E-Rozgaar is changing life
E-Rozgaar program is going very well all over Punjab while eliminating unemployment. This year, E-Rozgaar is celebrating its 3rd birthday with the commitment that they can do more with more vigor and efforts for youth in earning a sustainable income. Almost 16000+ people till now are being benefited by the E-Rozgaar program to earn an honorable living.
PITB chairman said that “The project aims to empower youth, especially females, to learn and earn through a series of IT-based training and workshops,” and this project is fulfilling its purpose very well as Pakistan is on the fourth number in producing freelancers and this ranking is moving upward after E-Rozgaar graduates.
The best opportunity for the initiation of a freelance career
This wise movement of the chief minister is helping youth to vanish unemployment and to prepare Pakistan to run alongside the technology race in the world. Its 40 centers are established in 36 districts of Punjab hence a significant step of soaring unemployment and financial challenges faced by the youth of Punjab.
Students completed 16 years of education but now don’t have any honorable source of income that may come and join E-Rozgaar, a life-changing opportunity. Even the new technology illiterate person can enter it; experienced trainers will train and give the confidence to become financially independent and to make a career out of it.
E-Rozgaar graduates are earning handsome amount at home
Initially, the E-Rozgaar team aims to train 10000 youth per year, and now 16000+ students are being benefited by it, succeeded in making an honorable living. The first freelancing convention reflects this future success as 500 applicants participated, which was proof that it is the only solution that could end unemployment.
Students are monetizing their skills via online platforms like Fiverr, Upwork, freelancer, 99 designs, people per hour, truelancer, and many more. 16000+ graduates have verified earning of almost 23 crore PKR, and this earning is increasing day by day, minimizing unemployment to a great extent. Hence this program is enabling our youth to receive a foreign exchange for our country.
Excellent Opportunity for girls
There is an excellent opportunity in an E-Rozgaar program for girls who are forced to stay at home because of family norms and, most of the time of not having a unique opportunity to work. Girls join this great initiative to earn a handsome amount of money without stepping out of the protective walls of their homes. It is a massive opportunity for married girls who cannot do full-time jobs because of their families and infants.
