Livelihood

As a natural complement to our efforts in education and skill development, Engro Foundation is committed to making investments directly into the income-generating capacity of our stakeholders.
 

technical and vocational training

To improve the productivity of the labour force, however, primary and secondary education is often not enough. This is why the company has actively invested in the Engro Hunar Program across 4 districts in 2013. We are partnering with premier technical institutes across the country, including Hunar Foundation, Descon Technical Institute, TTC Daharki and the Maritime Training Institute, to provide short term technical training in construction, engineering and seafaring trades. The best and brightest of youth from rural areas around our plant sites are selected through a merit based system for these life changing scholarships which, for the first time, give them a road map for their careers.

 

khushaal livestock project

During the floods, there were many news reports of villagers who risked their lives to rescue their livestock. These stories may have seemed perplexing to urban dwellers but make sense when considering the fact that cattle form a vital source of income for most rural households.
 
Given the importance of livestock, Engro Foundation collaborated with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and started a program called the “Khushaal Livestock Project” which helped to restore the productivity of farm animals to pre-flood levels.

 

weld- women empowerment through livestock development

Across Northern Sind and Southern Punjab, Engro Foundation aspires to improve the economic and social health of primary milk producing communities -the most fundamental segment of Engro’s production chain. To rationally build up capacity of small-scale producers and weave institutional framework for quality, Engro Foundation partnered with USAID to devise a radical new initiative –Women Empowerment through Livestock Development (WELD).
