Infosys Foundation Inks MoU With ICT Academy and Pledges Over ₹ 33 Cr to Enhance Employability in Rural Areas

Infosys Foundation, the philanthropic and CSR arm of Infosys, has taken a significant step to enhance the employability of young learners in rural India. They recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the ICT Academy of Tamil Nadu. Through this collaboration, Infosys Foundation aims to skill 48,000 students across the country.

Key Highlights

1. Centers of Excellence: The initiative will establish "centers of excellence for women and youth empowerment" in over 450 colleges across India. These centers will provide both online and offline training to students.

2. Skill Development: Infosys Foundation will leverage its digital learning platform, Infosys Springboard, to enhance accessibility to learning and skill development for students.

3. Job Placement Aid: In addition to training, the program will also offer job placement assistance to help students transition into the workforce.

This effort reflects Infosys Foundation's commitment to empowering young learners and bridging the employability gap in rural areas.

Earlier in May, the foundation has partnered with Ashoka University, Sonepat, Haryana to enhance scientific research. The two had signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to support the university's Chemical Biology Lab.
