To harness the potential of Pakistani youth with a particular focus on entrepreneurship, education, employability, and leadership development.
A significant bulge in the young population is not just a global threat but also developing countries like Pakistan.
Globally, out of a population of 1273 million, 68 million youth is unemployed whereas only 30.96% of youth in Pakistan have the NEET (not in employment, education, and trained) status. Majority of the Pakistan youth work in the international market as unskilled labor and earn less than a third of what a skilled worker earns. Also, due to the increasing demand for a skilled workforce by the foreign markets, we are
rapidly trailing behind in the competition. Pak Mission Society under the Leadership and Youth Development Programme (LYDP), is building capacities of youth to eradicate poverty, promote peace, link them to the job market, and develop capacities through various training and development interventions. LYDP through its various projects of vocational skill development, internship programme, capacity building, mentoring and counseling, advocacy, and awareness is contributing to the growth and development of the youth of different communities,
religions, and socio-economic backgrounds. These projects are successfully working with individuals and
groups in different parts of the country empowering them to reach their full potentials and contributing to Pillar I, II, III, and V of the Pakistan Vision 2025.
