The Flipkart Foundation has collaborated with Smile Foundation which has designed to empower underprivileged youth.
The young individuals will be provided with industry-relevant skills, placing a special emphasis on Banking, Financial Services, and Insurance (BFSI), Personality Development (PD), and Soft Skills. Apart from this a pivotal part of this impactful collaboration, support will be extended to two strategically located Smile Twin e-Learning Programme (STeP) centers in Bengaluru.
These institutions will provide comprehensive training to 270 youth selected from less privileged backgrounds, with its positive ripple effect indirectly benefiting a broader community of around 1,100 individuals.
The overarching goal of this initiative is to secure entry-level job placements for trained individuals, thereby opening doors to a more promising future.
This project, which will span 12 months, aligns seamlessly with the government’s Skill India Mission. The programme is thoughtfully designed, comprising three terms, each lasting four months.
To commence this educational journey, the project will enroll and induct 45 students per term, guided by well-trained instructors, who would enable learners to not only understand the material but also make the most of the educational portal’s features and resources.
The programme also provides instructors with tools to closely monitor individual progress and overall performance, thereby allowing them to offer timely support and constructive feedback.
The programme also includes counseling sessions where enrolled youth can benefit from expert guidance and attend workshops aimed at honing their skills.
Puja Trisal, Director, of Flipkart Foundation, said, “In collaboration with Smile Foundation, we at Flipkart Foundation are driven by a shared vision to empower the dreams of underprivileged youth.”
“Through this transformative initiative, we are not just creating job-ready individuals but also shaping a community of confident, skilled, and empowered young minds”, Puja Trisal added.
Santanu Mishra, Co-founder and Executive Trustee of Smile Foundation commented, “We are glad to partner with the Flipkart Foundation and take our mission forward in enabling deserving youth with market-oriented employability skills.”
With a commitment to job placements and comprehensive support, this programme illustrates its dedication to empowering young individuals and illuminating the path to a brighter future for them, in turn contributing to a stronger, more inclusive India.
