DB Schenker in India launches first CSR initiative
OCT 5, 2015: DB Schenker in India has launched its first CSR program for 2015 in Bangalore for skill development of underprivileged youth in the city. The program was conducted in association with SAMA Foundation (non-government organizations) which works for welfare of the deprived people in the area.
The objective of the program was ‘Learn and Earn’. The idea behind the same was to provide these youths the knowledge & skills about computers, retail and basic management so that they could earn their living. A total 40 students were enrolled for the first batch of the program. In all 120 students will be trained in three batches throughout the year.
Renu Bohra, director, human resource (HR), Schenker India Private Limited commented, "This is a small contribution towards our responsibility to society. We feel happy working with the underprivileged youth of India towards building self-reliance and creating livelihood opportunities. Additionally we will help these youth find job opportunities in leading retail companies (check with Nitin if we can mention the co names on record) where there is requirement for data entry operators and sales representatives. As an organization, Schenker India is highly committed to society by supporting social projects on children, youth and sustainable environment for our bright future."
