As the pandemic hit, Pakistan’s e-commerce ecosystem has grown to become a PKR 96 Billion industry after businesses and consumers were forced to go online. This is just one indicator of the immense potential this industry holds and that is what DirAction has tapped into.
Given that Pakistan is a youth intensive nation, there is untapped potential waiting to be channeled. The youth is brimming with talent, energy and ideas but are in need of opportunities and direction. With the cost of basic education and necessities, it’s no secret that financial strains are on every family. Unfortunately, the size of our job market is not big enough to meet this increasing demand. This gap can only be filled with roughly 2 million jobs being created annually – which is far from the reality. This brings forth the need for platforms that open more avenues of employment and income generation.
Internet is that one tool that our youth is the fastest in adapting to, so why not make this their strength? Leveraging the potential of e-commerce, DirAction is empowering the youth to become self-sustainable by creating an alternate route for them to achieve financial independence. The company is an e-commerce skill-development and investment firm that dares people to win by equipping them with the right skills and mind-set.
With a special focus on youth and women, DirAction is on a mission to make Pakistan one of the largest e-commerce ecosystems in the world. Focusing on the world’s largest e-commerce platforms such as Amazon, Alibaba & e-bay, the company trains individuals to become either an online manager for an existing seller or start their own online businesses. Here is a snapshot of some of the courses they offer.
1. Virtual Manager
