Recently launched by the Aman Foundation, the “INJAZ Pakistan” is the fifteenth national chapter of INJAZ Al-Arab (www.injazalarab.org), an organization that reaches a combined 230,000 youth (students and volunteers) across the broader Middle East and North Africa. INJAZ Al-Arab is a member of “Junior Achievement Worldwide”, the world’s largest organization committed to inspiring and preparing young people to succeed in a global economy, works with private-sector volunteers to teach entrepreneurship and workforce readiness to young people.
The goal of INJAZ Pakistan to reduce unemployment, to empower school leavers and college graduates by encouraging a culture of entrepreneurship and assisting them with financial literacy skills for the betterment of youth who lack the financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship skills needed to succeed in today’s economy.
Showing an interest of being a member in INJAZ Pakistan’s Board, our management has pledged contribution of Rs 4.50 million (around US$ 50,000) annually, for three consecutive years, starting from 2012-13 upto 2014-15.
Apart from our annual donation, they are also seeking our support in providing them Corporate Volunteers on need basis for their Entrepreneurial Master Class (EMC) program (9:00am to 1:30pm), which is targeted towards middle school students. The role of the Corporate Volunteer will be to facilitate students in understanding and completing the pre-designed course work for the EMC, which will be given to them in the form of worksheets on different aspects of business and entrepreneurship. Each volunteer will cater to a group of 10 students and will use his/her knowledge of the corporate world to guide students in developing an innovative business idea.
