The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Information Technology Board – KPITB is pleased to announce a community celebration to mark Pakistan’s first ever awards program recognizing online freelancing, KPITB’s Digital Freelancers Awards.
Pakistanis are the fourth most active nation globally on online outsourcing platforms. For young Pakistanis, this form of work has created new opportunities to access and compete in global markets as digital freelancers. To support this growing digital economy, KPITB is currently training youth in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa on digital skills and how to be successful on online platforms, through the KP Youth Employment Program.
We collected hundreds of applications and collected vital information on the size of the industry and trends in jobs, average earnings and identified top talent in the province and throughout the country. This will help us develop new programs and support youth on the skills and jobs of the future!
Winners have been selected and awards will be distributed at a community celebration on March 9th!
Stay tuned for more updates and the release of Pakistan’s first comprehensive report on digital freelancing!
