ISLAMABAD: A batch of 18 graduates and under-graduates studying at various universities

across Pakistan were awarded certificates at the closing ceremony of the Pakistan Poverty

Alleviation Fund Summer Internship Program.

The ten-day long program enabled interns to gain insight into dynamics of the development

sector with focus on PPAF working model. The Internship Program was delivered in two phases

comprising of in-house training sessions and field visits. While the in-house sessions provided

information on various components under which PPAF carries out development projects for

marginalized communities, the field exposure provided students with on ground experience and

knowledge about challenges-and opportunities, encountered by PPAF, its implementation

partners and the communities themselves.

The interns visited PPAF-supported interventions in Multan, Muzaffargarh, Abbottabad and

Haripur where they learnt about implementation strategies, impact and sustainability of different

projects including institutional development, livelihood, education, community infrastructure and

micro-credit interventions.
