Google has made a significant commitment to Pakistan by granting 44,500 scholarships to young people who wish to master in-demand digital skills. These awards will enable students to enroll in Google Career Certificates (GCC) courses, which were established last year.
The remark was given during an event attended by Syed Aminul Haque, Minister of Information and Telecommunications, and emphasized Google’s commitment to providing fair opportunities for people of all backgrounds to learn digital skills and pursue professional prospects.
Farhan Qureshi, Google Pakistan Country Director, emphasized the company’s commitment to contributing to an inclusive digital economy in Pakistan through various initiatives, products, and services. He also emphasized the importance of digital skills in Pakistan, which has the third-largest freelance economy in the world.
The organization has also added three additional courses to its program: Business Intelligence, Advanced Data Analytics, and Cybersecurity.
Minister Haque expressed his full support for Google’s efforts to teach digital skills to Pakistanis through the GCC initiative. He emphasized that this initiative is compatible with the ministry’s goal of creating an ecosystem that unleashes the limitless potential of the digital economy while providing fair opportunities to all Pakistanis. He lauded Google’s pledge to provide half of all scholarships to women, acknowledging the importance of gender equality in digital progress.
