Justuju Internship Programme 2020 - The Pakistan Telecommunication Company Limited (PTCL) has successfully concluded Justuju, an exclusive internship programme for Persons with Disabilities (PWDs). The six weeks internship programme included a structured professional development plan for 20 interns based in Islamabad, Lahore and Karachi.  The selected cohort of interns came from a varied background of education and required accommodation for either hearing/speech impairment, visual impairment or restricted mobility.  The program was conducted via PTCL mentors who assisted the interns against a weekly scorecard on time management, official communication, task delivery, organizational/functional knowledge and Microsoft Teams.  The Sessions were facilitated by Sign Language Interpreters courtesy of DeafTawk. The program further included webinars on overcoming adversity and customized feedback sessions.  The aim was to equip these young graduates with professional skills necessary to kick-start their career in the corporate world. Speaking about the internship program, Syed Mazhar Hussain, Group Chief Human Resource Officer, PTCL & Ufone, said, “With the Justuju program, the PTCL endeavors to enable PWDs in honing their skills so that they can be well-equipped for today’s competitive working environment. We encourage them to use their unique approach and critical thinking for problem solving and decision making. The PTCL being a national company endorses and practices inclusivity where all individuals can contribute to business growth and the country’s economy.” The programme was largely conducted on digital platforms. However, the interns got an opportunity to visit the PTCL offices and experience the corporate working culture in person during the last few weeks.  The PTCL remains committed to taking similar initiatives in the future, focusing on capacity building of youth from all walks of life.
