Accenture Center of HOPE, Neelsandra
YEAR STARTED: 2015
SUPPORTED BY: Accenture
With a target of training 500 people over a period of one year, the Accenture Center of HOPE in Neelasandra hopes to open new doors of opportunities and possibilities for young people living in and around this Bangalore suburb. The specialized courses we offer in Tally, computer hardware, Photoshop and Desktop Publishing, spoken English and life skills, give them an edge over others while applying for jobs. Supported by Accenture, the center is now also a National Digital Literacy Mission (NDLM) partner in Bangalore.
Most of our students are from underprivileged backgrounds who cannot afford to learn computers and other vocational courses at private centers. Not only is our center affordable, but the students are mentored by their trainers who ensure they get the highest quality of training. Afterward, we help them find jobs and prepare for job interviews. Our job placement rate is 40-50 percent.
