Empowering the underprivileged Youth with Unnati
Skill Development is going to be the defining element in India’s growth story. The government alone cannot accomplish the task of bridging the skill gap that exists in the country. A collaborative effort by the government, private companies and NGOs is the call of the hour.
Samarpan Bangalore (CSR team of Infosys Bengaluru Development Center ) has a tie up with Unnati, an NGO, which provides a 50-day residential program for skill development and vocational training with 100% placement. The NGO believes in the core philosophy of ‘learn, earn and stand tall’ and aims to empower the underprivileged youth of the country with vocational training and transformation programs to help them secure stable employment.
The Samarpan Udyoga program in collaboration with Unatti, selects and sponsors deserving students from different places who are underprivileged, less educated, unemployed and/or economically backward.
Overall, in the last three years, 150 youth have been sponsored by Samarpan. The participants got placement with various organization like Westside, Hatti Kappi, Tata Trent and Chennai Silks, after the completion of their training. Sponsorship to Unatti is voluntarily collected by Infosys employees.
