ITHM Faisalabad – enabling the youth for a brighter future
For long the talented youth of our country has suffered from negligence and sub-standard resources. With few opportunities in employment and almost no scope for merit-based careers, the youth of our country was pushed back. As we slowly began to progress and cultural norms began to dissipate, students began looking for wider career options than just our conventional doctors and engineers. Quickly, enough a need was felt for specialized institutes in other creative arts and fields as well. Very few professional institutes in the field of culinary, hotel management and tourism exist in Pakistan. The few that do exist are usually built in cosmopolitan cities like Karachi and Lahore. Smaller cities still remain barren of standardized institutes and vocational training centers. In a time such as this, ITHM was established in Faisalabad, the hub of textile, crafts and fine arts.
