ISLAMABAD,(UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 25th july,2016) : The Engro Powergen Thar Limited (EPTL) and Descon Technical Institute (DTI) signed an agreement to provide on-site scaffolding training to 200 locals of Thar.
This will serve as a great opportunity for the people of this region to become more involved with the Thar Coal Project which will be a game changer for Pakistan's energy landscape and the people of the desolate region of Thar, said a press statement issued on Monday.
Moreover, with this Project being undertaken in the area, skill development and training of locals will create a sense of ownership amongst them. The training will commence in August, after preliminary procedures have been conducted.
This is a unique initiative being undertaken under the banner of `Khushaal Thar' and will seek to train over 1,500 locals, in several different trades required for the skill manpower requirement for the power plant project, which is being established by Engro Powergen Thar Limited and the mining project which is being undertaken by Sindh Engro Coal Mining Company.
"We are delighted to be joining hands with the prestigious training institute of DTI to enhance the skills and capabilities of the people of Thar, who have immense potential to give back to their communities," said Manzoor Zaidi, CFO EPTL. He said, EPTL was committed to tapping into the available human resource within the Thar region, and this training is just one of the many initiatives EPTL has taken and intends to take in the future which will ensure rapid skill development and employment opportunities for the local communities".
On the occasion, DTI Head Mirza Toheed Iqbal Baig said "DTI is very happy that EPTL has chosen us to collaborate with them to work on such a great project," He said DTI believes in skills for livelihood, and there seems no better way to help people from places such as Thar to emerge from their embryonic state.
