Bridgestone India To Train Youth As Skilled Heavy Motor Vehicle Drivers
Driver training program under project Sarthi to be extended to the eastern and southern parts of India
Bridgestone India has signed an MoU with Automotive Skills Development Council (ASDC) to extend their flagship CSR initiative Sarthi. The programme is aligned to Bridgestone’s global commitment towards Safe and Sustainable Mobility. Under the program, 695 youths from marginalised sections have been trained and placed as skilled heavy motor vehicle drivers, mostly from under represented areas of Maharashtra. Under the new MoU, Sarthi will now be extended to South and East India and Bridgestone intends to impart training to around 640 youth including 100 women in the current financial year.
The MoU was signed by Apurv Choubey, Chief Human Resource Officer Bridgestone India and Arindam Lahiri, Chief Executive Officer, ASDC.
In addition to training on driving skills, this programme includes sessions on finance management, soft skills, gender sensitisation and physical wellbeing as well.
