PAF to provide skill-oriented training to squatters
KATHMANDU, June 15: The Poverty Alleviation Fund (PAF) is planning to provide income generating trainings and drinking water and sanitation facility to squatters who were recently displaced from the Bagmati River bank.
The skill-oriented trainings are expected to provide employment opportunities to the have-nots.
The 42nd meeting of the PAF held under the chairmanship of Prime Minister Dr Baburam Bhattarai took a decision to this effect on Thursday.
Vice-chairman of PAF Janakraj Joshi said the PAF would offer income generating trainings to the squatters through mobile fund after uniting the squatters in different groups by identifying the status of real squatters.
The meeting has also decided to distribute identity cards to the poor people and launch it as a national campaign.
