ISLAMABAD: Under the ‘Kamyab Jawan Program,’ the Higher Education Commission (HEC) would improve athletic facilities in all institutions.
The proposal was agreed during the inaugural committee meeting of the Kamyab Jawan Sports Academies National Youth Games at the Higher Education Commission Secretariat. The meeting was chaired by Dr. Shaista Sohail, Executive Director HEC.
She stressed that the program’s goal is to improve Athletics Academies’ amenities and equipment, which would include a distinct presentation hall and a lodging center for a minimum of 50 to 60 athletes and six coaching members.
The conference was attended by the presidents of several universities.
Dr. Shaista highlighted that the future goal of the initiative is to build HEC’s sports team so that it can participate at local and global levels. It will assist in the formation of athletics culture and the development of skills to help Pakistan grow sports while also encouraging physical fitness and good health.
She briefed the committee that the program’s total cost was Rs1,937.429 million, with an FEC of Rs103.851 million, and that the program would take 36 months to complete.
HEC requires universities to allocate appropriate property for the development of Sports Academy and conduct marketing by developing branding initiatives to generate funds.
A sub-committee will be established to guarantee that all involved institutions are kept up to date and the financial distribution of the apportioned finances for Accounts and Audit, with total accountability for organising, managing, and summarizing the games.
