KVTC is the first Vocational Education and Training centre for intellectually disabled people in Pakistan. This is the story of KVTC graduate Mumtaz.
KVTC is the first Vocational Education and Training (VET) centre for intellectually disabled (ID) people in Pakistan. Since 1991, KVTC has proved with an unprecedented 400 graduated trainees gainfully employed in Karachi, that ID people can become independent, contributing, and responsible members of society. This is the story of Mumtaz, another graduated trainee, leading a life that may seem ordinary to us, but means the entire world to him. KVTC’s was the first Vocational Training Centre in Pakistan for ID people, the first to provide an on-job training program for ID people in Pakistan, and is part of the Montessori Programme. KVTC now wants to be able to sustain their activities as, well as expand their services further to make a more significant impact on society. Visit the Karachi Vocational Training Centre website.
