Layyah has been one of most neglected cities of South Punjab where talented people are unable to earn a decent living. Lack of awareness, access to opportunities and absence of digital infrastructure has further worsened the situation.

Daastan has teamed up with KhudKaar House – Layyah’s first community center to launch incubation programs to teach modern digital skills of creative industry to local youth and provide them with hi-tech digital devices and hi-speed internet so they can unlock global opportunities.

We have developed Layyah 2.0 Charter to engage the local government and academia to work for a common vision; to uplift Layyah out of poverty by 2030. Lit’Tech Layyah is the first step to gather everyone and communicate our vision to transform Layyah as the Creative Capital of South!
