The Government of Sindh launched mega initiative of skill development program titled Benazir Bhutto Shaheed Youth Development Program (BBSYDP) in 2008. It was aimed at addressing twin issues of un-employment and poverty through skill development trainings; specifically directed for local and international industrial projects and sectors. The provincial assembly of Sindh passed Benazir Bhutto Shaheed Human Resource Research and Development Board [BBSHRRDB] Act in 2013 which converted BBSYDP into Board. It marked a watershed moment in the history of the province of Sindh. It established a permanent structure within folds of Government of Sindh with comprehensive and long-term vision to continue addressing the twin issues of poverty and un-employment through Human Resource Development in the province of Sindh to maintain a robust economy.
The Board has successfully trained thousands of unemployed youth in various market demand and employable trades without any discrimination.
