BBSHRRDB Background

As a matter of legislative determination, to sustain and safe guard public interest, the mandate of Benazir Bhutto Shaheed Youth Development Program [BBSYDP], initiated in 2008-09 by Government of Sindh, has been passed on to Benazir Bhutto Shaheed Human Resource Research & Development Board[BBSHRRDB], established through Act of Assembly, Sindh 2013 as a public service initiative to develop human resource in Sindh by empowering youth (aged between 18-35 years) with employable skill sets that will multiply work avenues for them.

Youth population in Sindh is estimated at 55.7 and out of this youth population 1.7 million are unemployed. A large cohort of youth is unemployed as they do not have skills to compete in the job market. Skills development is an important step to promote employment generation; increase in number of skillful youth would increase per capita income, thus give boost to economy of province.

BBSHRRDB has groomed 423,393 youth in 89 employment sectors and shaped the youth as an economic asset for the province. BBSHRRDB takes pride in ensuring implementation of standardized skill development training so that each man and woman would get equal opportunity. This approach would bring lucrative results in human resource development.
