The participants presented their suggestions and recommendations to the advisor for the overall improvement of the programs, a KU handout said.

He said “The entire program revolves around the youth and the corporate world and we are there just as facilitators and overall supervising and monitoring authority.”

Vice Chancellor KU, Prof Talat Ahmad said: “The University will provide all support to the implementing agencies.
Prof Talat said: “There should also be some sort of initiative to motivate and bring corporate companies to the Valley so that they establish their software companies and create employment opportunities for the youth who could not go outside.”
