Collaborating

Amul’s Managing Director, RS Sodhi, stated, ‘Amul and SAP have teamed up with the goal of inclusive and long-term community development. School-aged children and teachers will receive high-quality computer literacy and skill interventions training as part of the project.’

Collaboration with SAP, according to Sodhi, ‘is a step forward in mainstreaming these rural communities by empowering them to sharpen essential future skills and make their dreams come true. We hope it will contribute significantly to nation-building and the creation of an Atmanirbhar India,’ he stated.

For citizens in remote villages, the initiative will include coding and 21st-century skills such as digital literacy, problem-solving, and English skills. It also includes a school-to-workforce transition to foster a STEM-focused learning environment and assist students from underserved areas in making a more seamless transition to the workforce.

It also emphasizes women’s empowerment and entrepreneurship, with a focus on young women with digital financing and functional communications skills. The project also aims to help farmers maintain their livelihoods. Also Read | Partnership with state govts to develop infrastructure to boost exports-APEDA.

According to Kulmeet Bawa, President and Managing Director of SAP Indian Subcontinent, technology can help shape India’s journey to a more inclusive and sustainable economy. ‘While urban development projects such as smart cities and futuristic mobility reflect this potential, India’s true progress is found in its villages. Our collaboration with Amul will help citizens succeed by providing the relevant information and tools they need.’

‘As India continues to lead the world in environmental action, partnerships like ours will lay the groundwork for a more inclusive and self-reliant future in which no one is left behind.’
