Sindh Announced Paid Internships for University Students

The interim government of Sindh is in the process of launching a paid internship program designed to benefit 200 students hailing from public sector universities. Led by the provincial Department of Human Rights, this initiative is geared towards offering invaluable learning opportunities to the youth.

In a recent meeting with representatives of the Department of Human Rights, the interim Law Minister, Barrister Omer Soomro, provided key details about this program. He underscored its specific focus on students pursuing degrees in law and social sciences, with the intention of nurturing a more profound comprehension of these academic disciplines.

Internship opportunities will be offered to students living in the Karachi, Hyderabad, Mirpurkhas, Larkana, Sukkur, and Shaheed Benazirabad divisions. The Law Minister has indicated that a formal proposal will soon be submitted for approval to the interim Chief Minister (CM).

Once selected, students will be entitled to a monthly stipend of Rs. 25,000 each, making it an appealing prospect for those keen to make contributions to human rights causes. Furthermore, upon completing the program, interns will be given the chance to participate in events addressing a wide range of human rights issues, thereby enhancing their knowledge and involvement in this crucial field.

The internship opportunity would be offered to students based in the divisions of Karachi, Hyderabad, Mirpurkhas, Larkana, Sukkur, and Shaheed Benazirabad. The law minister said a summary would soon be sent to the interim chief minister for approval in this regard.

The selected students, after the completion of the internship programme, will be sent to attend events on issues related to human rights. Soomro said the interim administration would try its best to promote the educated youth of the province by providing them guidance on issues related to human rights.

The meeting was attended by the secretary of the human rights department, Jawed Sibghatullah Mahar, directors, and other senior officials of the department.
