The Federal Ministry of Information and Communications Technology has partnered with Tech Valley, Telecom Foundation and Virtual University to expand ‘CS First’ program to all parts of Pakistan.
All stakeholders and children who shared their success stories and projects with the Singapore-based Google team, gathered at the Ministry of Information and Communication Technology (MoIT&T), to celebrate the successful completion of the second phase of Google CS First and Be Internet Awesome.

The goal of this program is to help disadvantaged kids learn to code with Google ‘CS First’ and make them “Awesome at Internet” by introducing them to safe web browsing.

Given that children are now widely familiar with the digital world, it is important to teach them what to do and what to avoid in order to stay safe and help them benefit from the Internet. The Federal minister for IT said that his minitry is working on the development of young people, because they are their future. He noted that it is very good that 316 students and 69 teachers were trained in the first two phases of the program. He also stressed that now is the right time to teach digital skills to Pakistani youth.

Minister Haq said that empowering women is an important slogan of the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology and that it is taking active initiatives to provide Internet services in remote areas of the country.
