SAGE Foundation, Art Of Living To Upskill Unemployed Graduates

The aim is to train and place 10,000 low-income students in the BFSI sector over the next two years

Shahani Academic and Global Empowerment Foundation (SAGE Foundation), the CSR arm of The Shahani Group, signed an MoU with Sri Sri Rural Development Programme Trust, part of The Art of Living Foundation to provide certified online and offline training, for unemployed graduates, in the Banking and Financial Services (BFSI) sector.

As a part of the partnership, Sri Sri Rural Development Programme Trust will mobilise candidates and provide the infrastructure required for offline training, whereas SAGE Foundation will provide certified training to these candidates. In addition to the training, SAGE Foundation will also provide employment assistance to the trained candidates for placement in the BFSI industry. The online training will be available for candidates from across India, while the offline training will be provided in Rajkot, Gujarat and Dharwad, Karnataka.

“Studies have demonstrated that a large proportion of Indian graduates do not possess the skills necessary to be employable. We believe that this also contributes to our country’s unemployment problem and we are committed to bridging this gap to ensure sustainable livelihoods for Indian youth," Dr Akhil Shahani, Managing Director, The Shahani Group, said.
