A Memorandum of Understanding between Zindigi – Powered by JS Bank, Prince’s Trust International, and Pakistan Alliance for Girls Education (PAGE) paves the way for the implementation of “The Achieve Program,” a structured 360-degree initiative that will target young Pakistani girls’ personal growth, digital inclusion, entrepreneurship, and employability skills.
Zindigi – powered by JS Bank, Pakistan’s fastest-growing digital banking project geared on Gen Z and millennials, will provide funding for the pilot program. With the technical assistance of Prince’s Trust International, a nonprofit organization established by His Majesty King Charles III, previously The Prince of Wales, to address the challenge of youth unemployment around the world, PAGE will deliver the program.
This innovative program will support young girls in their (re)engagement with formal education and provide them the skills they need to move from school to sustainable employment. It will also encourage alternate learning methods.
At the signing ceremony, dignitaries from all important partners were present, including Shabir Randeree, chairman of Prince’s Trust International, Noman Azhar, chief operating officer of Zindigi, Imran Shaikh, chief operating officer of JS Bank, Fajer Rabia Pasha, executive director of PAGE, and Farzana Yaqoob, chair of the PAGE board.
“We are thrilled to be affiliating with Prince’s Trust International and PAGE Pakistan to design and launch an initiative that connects closely with our fundamental objective of empowering the youth of Pakistan,” Noman Azhar said in a speech during the occasion. This partnership will assist in developing a model that is sustainable and provides young girls with the knowledge and skills they require to succeed.
“Prince’s Trust International employment, education, and enterprise initiatives give young people around the world the means to develop sustainable professions,” said Wasim Malik, Head of Asia for Prince’s Trust International. Our Achieve program is tailored to the particular need and is provided through regional partners. For our work in Pakistan, this new relationship is an exciting development, and I am eager to observe the program’s beneficial effects on the young people who participate in it.
The success and longevity of “The Achieve Program” are important to Zindigi, Prince’s Trust International, and PAGE Pakistan.
We are thrilled to be launching Achieve in Pakistan, which will concentrate on equipping young women with the ability to build their personal, entrepreneurial, and employment abilities with digital skills as a cross-cutting subject, according to Mrs. Fajer Rabia Pasha. Young girls could benefit from this program and be given the tools they need for a successful future.
