It is our responsibility to provide them opportunities and utilise their potential for development sector, he added.

It is to be mentioned here that for NIP project Rs 3.6 billion have been allocated in the federal budget.

Despite having tremendous potential as drivers of social change, youth have always been caught in a multitude of problems like unemployment, poverty, social taboos and politics. Since the creation of Pakistan the youth was left alone in isolation at the mercy of circumstances.

The primarily frustrated due to career and academic issues, identity crises, family dynamics and low self esteem and lack of self-confidence that always waste their talent.

In order to better equip graduates of the country for their future career in February 2007, the government had approved a revolutionary National Internship Programme where fresh unemployed graduated from all over the country could get one year hands- on experience with government organisations. However, the quarters concerned hardly managed to run it for more than year due to financial crises.

As the NIP shifted from the Establishment Division to the Ministry of Youth Affairs, the ministry's officials had made a request to the prime minister for getting more funds for proper implementation of the project.

Series of activities on World Youth Day planned
Islamabad: To mark the International Youth Day on August 12, a group of four organisations including World Population Foundation, Right To Play, Rozan and Plan-Pakistan has planned a series of activities.

The International Youth Day would be observed on August 12 under the theme of 'Sustainability: Our Challenge, Our Future".

Keeping in mind the current situation in Pakistan related to peace and the impact of lack of peace on the lives of the individuals as well as the society, environment and economy, a group of four organisations has planned a series of activities to mark the day in a benefiting manner.

On the occasion a campaign would be launched that would be ended on August 22, where young people would undertake initiatives at their own school, college and community level.

The issues resulting in lack of peace are multidimensional and multifaceted with each having its own impact on the self, community and society. Yet the basis for the lack of peace in any from seems to stem from intolerance, prejudice on the basis of class, religion, sect as well as views about use of force and violence within and outside homes.

This is exhibited among the youth in the form of bullying, gang and street fights as well as an acceptance of use of physical force to resolve conflicts. If the basic fabric and root of a society is marred by violence and unrest, any efforts towards a sustainable economy and society are also negatively hampered, further creating unrest and conflict.

The representatives of NGOs invited all to mark this day by raising the slogan 'United for Peace towards greater Sustainability'.

They said that since media play a very important role in communicating and interacting with young people about issues that impact them, we would encourage you to undertake activities around the issue so that young people could share their views related to barriers to peace as well as their own individual and community level efforts.

They said that special features and programmes could be developed around the theme. Youth can also be invited to talk about these issues in morning and evening shows as well as special programmes developed around this day. The Nation
