Lahore, (Pakistan Point News - 24th May, 2018) : Punjab Finance Minister, Dr. Ayesha Ghaus Pasha has said that the provincial government is providing every possible opportunity to the womenfolk for their holistic inclusion in the process of national development and economic prosperity. She said that establishment of women employment facility center entitled "Job Asaan-Employment Facilitation Hub for Women" is an important step towards that goal.
Dr. Ayesha Ghaus Pasha stated this while addressing the Job Asaan Sahulat Center at Gulberg, here today. The center has been set up under the aegis of Punjab Commission on the Status of Women to facilitate the job-seeking girls. The Provincial Minister for Finance said that female job-seekers will be fully trained about different matters pertaining to their economic prospects including job search, CV writing, fundamental training and self- protection against harassment at workplaces so that the women could perform their duties with self-confidence and courage.
She said that women are 48 percent of the population and therefore, cannot be kept away from the process of development. Their proactive participation in all walks of life including trade and economic activities will expedite the process of growth and development at the grassroots. Dr. Ayesha Ghaus Pasha stressed upon the dire need to increase awareness, opportunities and trainings for females to enter the job-market for economic self-sustainability.
She said that Punjab government is playing its role by providing equal opportunities of education and socio-economic growth to the womenfolk. Girls have been given equal share in different educational programs including PEEF and PEF. It is, therefore, up to the womenfolk to take maximum benefit of the opportunities available to them for excelling in life, she added. She said that Punjab Commission has taken an important step by launching Job Asaan Center adding that she hopes that this center will make it easier for the needy girls to get suitable employment opportunities. She hoped that PCSW will ensure setting up such centers in all the 36 districts of the province.
