I lived in Germany for 20 years before coming back to Pakistan. The PGFRC helped me to find work, which is taking me closer to my long-term goal of having my own restaurant.
My name is Rashid, I’m 65 years old and come from Lahore. I moved to Germany 20 years ago to earn a living for my family and worked in catering there. But I lost my job due to the corona pandemic, so I decided to come back to Pakistan.
While I was still in Germany, I learned about the “Returning to New Opportunities” programme. I went to the District Office in the city of Tübingen to get some advice.
