The Punjab government has decided to launch Kamyab Jawan Junior Program in collaboration with the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF) in the province.
According to the details, a memorandum of understanding (MoU) has been signed between the Punjab government and UNICEF for collaboration to launch the Kamyab Jawan Junior Program for the children from 10 to 19 years of age.
Under the program, an adolescence equality index will be developed to assess different vulnerabilities and challenges faced by the children.
The index will help assessing the situation on ground and will be important in shaping the children’s future with the program’s policies.
Earlier in November 2020, the Government of Pakistan had reopened the application receiving process for Kamyab Jawan Program (KJP).
Under the scheme, the applicants were provided loans under soft and easy conditions.
The provision of subsidized business loans was aimed at uplift of the youth by offering opportunities to utilize their entrepreneurial potential to the fullest.
