Peace Center Lahore (PCL) established two Vocational Centers. PCL developed a training course, which implemented the Vocational Centers. PCL observed that mostly women and girls, after morning work, remain in homes, and mostly girls aged 10 to 15 do not go to school. PCL targeted these types of girls and women who wish to learn skills. This initiative provided them with an opportunity to learn skills and contribute to their family income. This way, they will become a fruitful part of their family.
PCL enrolled 30 women and girls in each center for one year in the course, and the following skills were imparted to them:
- Sewing, Knitting and Embroidery
- Fabric Painting and Glass Painting
- Making Hand-Made Decorations
- Beautician Skills
