Career Planning Workshop
Helping Hand for Relief and Development conducted Career Planning workshops for OSP students who have appeared in matriculation exams this year.
Two workshops were held—one in Muzaffarabad and the second in Rawalakot. These workshops were based on the assessment tests for these children. Students from Kashmir and Hazara Clusters participated in these tests. The aptitude test will determine the level and capability of the students individually and thus help decide what career they will pursue.
Training was conducted by HHRD through Edu-Vision. Further evaluation will be done by Edu-Vision on the basis of feedback against evaluation of their tests. After individual counseling and discussion, a final analysis and suggestion will be provided to the students about their careers. This will continue till they take admissions at institutions based on their choices and capabilities.
These Career Planning workshops continue Helping Hand’s efforts of improving living standards for sponsored orphans, so that they may dream, plan, and aspire, like normal children do.
