Islamabad: Forty five unemployed youth from Gilgit-Baltistan and Chitral have successfully completed a three months training in operating heavy machinery in the Construction Technology Training Institute (CTTI) Islamabad.

Sponsored by the Aga Khan Rural Support Programme (AKRSP) under the CIDA funded Enhancing Employability and Leadership for Youth (EELY) project, the training was designed to create employment opportunities for the youth while bridging the gap in the demanding career of heavy equipment operation.
