In addition to the legacy projects established in the Congress host countries, WPC set up a central WPC Legacy Fund to spread the benefits beyond the organising countries, through carefully selected projects around the world.
The WPC Legacy Fund is currently supporting a 'Local Development through Vocational Training' programme based in Pakistan at the Amantech Institute.
The Fund covers the cost of studies, travel and living for 20 students for a 2 year period - 10 students per year.
The aim of the programme is to build the capacity of local youth in vocational skills and help generate employment opportunities for local communities.
