The non-profit Saylani Welfare International Trust has joined hands with a private bank to launch a scheme to generate self-employment opportunities for jobless persons from deprived communities in Karachi.

A ceremony was held at the private bank's head office to hand over rickshaws to jobless people from underprivileged communities to enable them earn a decent livelihood for their families.

Speaking on the occasion, Saylani Trust founding chairman Maulana Muhammad Bashir Farooq expressed his sincerest gratitude to the bank for teaming up with his non-profit that had been generating employment opportunities for the people from deserving families for the past 20 years.

He said providing rickshaws at discounted prices under an interest-free loan scheme was a major step to help jobless people become self-employed in the shortest possible time. He said the Saylani Trust had been running several charitable initiatives in the education sector from the basic schooling to mass IT training and technical skill learning programmes.
