The project announcement was made during a board meeting attended by many officials including Yusuf Khan—CEO-Ignite and Anusha Rahman—State Minister—IT & Telecom.

State Minister said that many graduates pass out of various institutions every year in Pakistan. She informed that more than twenty thousand IT graduates and engineers pass out every year. There are fewer openings in the market for this newly graduated lot so now its high time to prepare the youth for learning to cope with the trends and the skill set needed for freelancing and entrepreneurship.

The last date for the submission of the proposal is 26th of December 2017.

The RFP can be downloaded easily if you are one of those who wants to avail this training opportunity for enhancing and improving the freelancing skills.
