Kamyab Jawan, PepsiCo sign up to offer Pakistan’s largest internship programme

ISLAMABAD - Prime Minister’s Kamyab Jawan and PepsiCo Pakistan have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to offer the largest internship programme in the country. Through the MoU, PepsiCo and its bottling partners will offer 1000 internships for students from across the country through a virtual internship programme. The internship program will prepare students for their professional careers by giving them experience of working in a business environment. 
PepsiCo’s ambition of rolling out a large-scale initiative for youth has been made possible through leveraging its ‘Roshan Kal’ platform. PepsiCo Roshan Kal is a youth platform that develops the professional skills of students through internships and skills development programs. Roshan Kal has created over 5300 opportunities for youth through its internship programme and its professional skills development programme that is run in collaboration with Amal Academy.
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.”
