Prime Minister Youth Affairs Programme (PMYAP) has planned to launch pulse portal, a new project to provide employment opportunity to unemployed and certified skilled young people.
The portal would develop a credible database of qualified and technically trained and certified young manpower so that requisite job opportunities at local and international levels could be made without complex processes.
The database would comprise of information of youth regarding their education, skills and work experience where these individuals would be adjusted according to their expertise. The government had devised an out of the box strategy to cater 65 percent of the country’s population.
YOUTH DIRECTION: After collecting information of the skilled young labour and experienced youth, it would be incorporated and regulated as per their domain. An official said that there is no direction for the youth to excel in their professional careers as most of the people waste their abilities and skills in wrong fields of work that are contrary to their educational and professional background.
This portal would help youth provide a pathway to professionally-trained youngsters to get right jobs and join the field according to their area of skills. The strategies and work plans had been streamlined to start this initiative with a new idea and with a grassroots level approach to benefit the skilled and potential youth without any discrimination.
UNEMPLOYMENT: Rising youth unemployment is one of the most significant problems facing economies and societies in today’s world, for developed and developing countries alike. At least 475 million new jobs need to be created over the next decade to absorb the 73 million youth currently unemployed and the 40 million new annual entrants to the labour market, the UN said.
The world community has set an ambitious 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development with integrated approach to development which recognises that eradicating poverty in all its forms and dimensions; combating inequality; creating inclusive and sustainable economic growth; achieving full and productive employment and decent work for all; and ensuring full gender equality and fostering social inclusion, are interdependent.
