KARACHI: Pizza Hut Management has issued appointment letters to 13 BISP beneficiaries and nominees for newly established Pizza Hut branch in Quetta.
Earlier, four beneficiaries of BISP have been placed on job by the food chain in Karachi.
On the occasion, Chairman BISP stated that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was aspiring to take BISP a step further in providing relief to the impoverished and vulnerable segments of our society.
He added that through vocational training and job placements, BISP beneficiaries would be graduating out of the Programme by earning a sustainable livelihood.

BISP is imparting vocational training to its selected beneficiaries in various trades under its vocational training program namely “Waseela-e-Rozgar” (WR) through public and private sector training institutes, so as to inculcate such skills into the beneficiaries, or their nominees, which would enable them to earn a respectable and decent livelihood.
BISP has already signed MoU with Korangi Association of Trade & Industries (KATI), Daewoo Pakistan Bus Service and other trade associations for providing job opportunities to BISP beneficiaries.
A recent MoU was inked between BISP and SITE Association, which is the largest industrial zone in the country with over 3500 industrial units and over 500,000 workers in various capacities.
