LAHORE: The Technical Educational and Vocational Training Authority (TEVTA) will take practical steps towards women empowerment through provision of respectable means of living to women belonging to the low income groups. This was stated by TEVTA Chairperson Ali Salman Siddique during a memorandum of understanding (MoU) signing ceremony with a social enterprise market place company ‘Ghar Par’, held on Saturday. According to the MoU, the ‘Ghar Par’ company would place 240 TEVTA trained beauticians, per annum. Ali Salman said that TEVTA under its new vision was focusing on quality industry-driven courses and acquiring accreditations for such courses resulting in improved placement opportunities both locally and abroad for its trained workforce. Securing placements for TEVTA trained beauticians through ‘Ghar Par’ was not only an important step towards managing jobs for its trainees but also a great leap towards women empowerment through provision of respectable means of living to women belonging to low income groups.
