Prime Minister Kamyab Jawan and PepsiCo Pakistan have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to provide Pakistan with the country’s largest internship programme. PepsiCo and its bottling partners will use the MoU to create a virtual internship programme that will provide 1000 internships to students from throughout the country. Students will gain experience working in a business environment as part of the internship programme, which will help them prepare for their future professions.
PepsiCo’s goal of launching a large-scale youth programme has been realised thanks to the company’s “Roshan Kal” platform. PepsiCo Roshan Kal is a youth platform that helps students enhance their professional abilities through internships and other initiatives. Through its internship programme and professional skills development programme, which is done in cooperation with Amal Academy, Roshan Kal has provided over 5300 chances for youth.
Furqan Ahmed Syed, CEO PepsiCo Pakistan and Afghanistan, commented:
“Creating opportunities for the Pakistani youth is a government priority and part of PepsiCo’s DNA. I believe this synergy between Kamyab Jawan and Roshan Kal has created an opportunity to develop the skills of our youth at an unprecedented scale.”
