The future of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa depends on the young people of today, and it is important that we develop this talent while it is young to ensure that we do not lose it later. Imagine a nation with a computer programming generation? Young kids, adults and youth, using core analytical skills to solve problems, build industry of ideas and reduce inequality and digital divide in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. KPITB has the solution that can effectively address and radically change the current education system through enabling our students to become part of a global campaign that will see them being able to compete with the best of the best around the world. The Early Age Programming& IT Essentials is the kind of solution.

The main objective of KP Youth Employment Program is to empower and gainfully employ youth in the province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. This project will specifically benefit the unemployed and under-employed youth in the province by providing a range of basic, medium and high-level skills to avail online opportunities and link them globally via freelancing. The objective of Phase 1 of the KP-Youth Employment Program is to employ 2100 youth of Khyber Pukhtunkhwa through freelancing platforms.
This will create a larger base of online entrepreneurs in the province, who can be then exploited as lead resource persons in the ongoing flow. The project will also benefit young entrepreneurs by providing them support systems in training, incubation and financing needed to develop and successfully launch their businesses. Indirectly KP will be benefited as a whole through the process of rebranding and remarketing the digital economy.
