National Internship Programme induction

30,000 fresh graduates to be inducted under NIP
Islamabad, Sep 02: To create skilled youth pool in the country, Ministry of Youth Affairs (MoYA) would induct 30,000 fresh graduates under its National Internship Programme (NIP).

The applications for induction of new interns will be invited through electronic and print media this week.

The unemployed graduates and post-graduates, below the age of 25 are eligible to apply for the internship. The candidates will be appointed after complete verification of their documents from Nadra.

The ministry is working on a comprehensive plan to train the skilled youth so that they can play their role in the development of the country, the official said.

The scheme is aimed at providing financial relief to the fresh graduates and engaging in acquiring additional knowledge and real life work experience.

The project of "Economic Empowerment of Youth" of the ministry would help harness potential of the young educated generation toward the right direction by training programmes and internships.

The ministry has already provided employment opportunities to around 25,000 young graduates through internship programme.

The sources said that the unemployed post-graduates and graduates who have completed 16 years of formal education in any discipline from HEC recognized universities and colleges including external candidates will be appointed for one year with stipend of Rs10,000 per month. After successful completion of one-year internship, interns will be awarded NIP experience certificate.

The ministry is also working to increase coordination among skill development institutes to run youth programmes effectively, he informed. The news

NIP third phase delayed for 2 weeks
Islamabad: The launch of the much-awaited third phase of mega project of National Internship Programme (NIP) has been again deferred for another two weeks due to bureaucratic hiccups on the part of the Ministry of Youth, it has been reliably learnt.

The Ministry of Youth Affairs has so far failed to formally launch the third phase of its multibillion project of NIP, especially designed to offer skill-based training and employment opportunities to educated youth, despite the fact that it has been claiming for the last several months induction of 30,000 postgraduates within a short span of time.

The NIP project was first of its kind intended to provide financial relief to youth and to keep them engaged in creative activities. Presently induction of 30,000 more youngsters is under consideration of the Ministry.

But, unfortunately the slow pace of the work is shattering hopes of the millions of youth, who are depressed due to their financial woes, caused by the unemployment and are keenly waiting for official announcement for inviting them.

According to official source of the Ministry still the file of the project is moving from one table to another, and it seems that the project would further be held up for an undefined period.

"It could not be said as to when it would be opened for youth", he further noted.
However, when approached another official of the project informed that they were fully prepared and hopefully would invite the applications from the youngsters within two weeks.

In this backdrop it has been learnt that from July of this year the Ministry officials are claiming inauguration of the third phase within time period of two weeks.

Every year, over 50,000 youth complete sixteen years of education from recognized degree awarding institutions of the country in a whole range of academic disciplines. A considerable time gap between the completion of education and job availability in majority of cases results in a sense of frustration and waste of potential.

The idea for commencement of the NIP was a temporary placement of appropriate numbers of unemployed and educated youth in relevant and matching government outfits that could be advantageous to the government as well as the unemployed youth, in such circumstances.

But the dominated majority of the youth particularly those belonging to far-flung areas of the country could not take benefit of the project in absence of the proper awareness campaign of the programme.

It is to be noted here that for NIP project RS 3.6 billion have been allocated in the Federal budget 2009-10.
In February 2007, in order to better equip graduates of the country for their future career the government had approved a revolutionary project of NIP, where fresh unemployed graduated from all over the country could get one year hands-on experience with government organisations.

But delay in release of the amount has hampered the project and the concerned quarters hardly managed to run it for more than a year.

After that the project was shifted from the Establishment Division to the Youth Ministry and a request had been made to the Primer for getting more funds for proper implementation of the NIP.

Under the umbrella of the Ministry, the second phase of the project was formally re-launched in Larkana at the mausoleum of Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto Shaheed where the placement orders were given to around 500 selected candidates. In recent past placement orders had also been distributed among 2300 candidates in a ceremony held in the Federal Capital. The nation

ACCA invites application for environment reporting awards
Islamabad: The Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA-WWF) invites applications for the eighth ACCA-WWF Pakistan Environmental Reporting Awards (PERA) 2009 in the categories of Best Sustainability Report and Best Environmental Report for multinational and locally listed companies.

Launched in 2001 in Pakistan, the PERA is endorsed by the Ministry of Environment and IUCN Pakistan and is part of ACCA's global strategy to promote greater transparency in the reporting of organisations' social and environmental impacts, said news release issued here.

Last year, the PERA winners were Attock Refinery Ltd (Best Sustainability Report-Local Listed Company), Pak Elektron Ltd (Best Environmental Report-Local Listed Company), Hinopak Motors Limited (Best Environmental Report-Multinational Company).

In addition, Qarshi Industries (Pvt) Ltd received commendation for commitment to transparency in reporting.

Dr Afra Sajjad, Head of Education and Policy Development, ACCA Pakistan commenting on the awards said, "Today's corporations operate in an environment of intense scrutiny from the media, investors, regulatory authorities and public". Increasingly the public concern about the social and environmental impacts of business practices is forcing companies to come to terms with being accountable to a much broader set of stakeholders and satisfy their interests and expectations through transparency in reporting.

Hence, we see more companies in Pakistan producing reports on their environmental and social performance or sustainability performance." The ACCA-WWF PERA is increasingly gaining popularity with a record number of entries received in 2008 i.e 44 against 40 in 2007 and 24 in 2006. The upward trend is a manifestation of the interest of business community in developing best practices of environmental and sustainability reporting in Pakistan.

The deadline for submission of environmental, social and sustainability reports for ACCA-WWF PERA 2009 is December 31, 2009. The news
