Discussions lasted for over two hours where our range of work with the disadvantaged youth captured the full attention of the officials. DB Tech is in principle being mandated to be a core participant in Skilling the youth of Andhra Pradesh through various technical and vocational training courses, starting with Guntur and Vizag.
Simultaneously, Dr.V K Swamy, Director, Skill Development, Telangana Academy for Skill and Knowledge called for a meeting to explore ways to form alliances to skill the unemployed youth of Telangana State. Mr.A Pradeep Reddy, Program Manager was also present in the meeting that was very successful.
During the meetings, the experiences of introducing vocational training for high school students of Government-run Schools in the state of Karnataka was shared. This radical initiative caught the attention of the officials who were piqued by the idea and were eager to learn from the experience and possibly implement it in the state schools.
We look forward to spearhead a new movement in the region to skill the disadvantaged youth.
