First time in history of Pakistan, I, at Mother and Child International hospital thought about this idea. – to train barbers and beauty salon specialists to minimize hepatitis and AIDS cases.
We have started this training course from Mirpur as a pilot program, but planning to expand it to all over Pakistan and Azad Kashmir.
This is 3 days course with extensive workshops followed by strict written and practical test.
First batch of qualified barbers were given diplomas at a ceremony on December 27. Assistant commissioner of Mirpur A.K Mr. Yasir Riaz was also present at diploma distribution and oath taking ceremony.
Mother and Child International is also providing completely free or easy and interest free financing on Sterilizers to all barbers who don’t have this machine.
AND THIS IS JUST BEGINNING. !!!
