It has been an eventful month at Tech Mahindra Foundation.
First, I am happy to share that we have inaugurated the second Tech Mahindra SMART Academy for Healthcare in Mohali. It is a matter of pride for us that like the SMART Academy in Delhi, the Academy in Mohali is also equipped with state-of-the-art laboratories – Operation Theatre lab, Dialysis lab, X-ray lab, Basic Skills lab and a computer lab. Not just that, we already have over 70 admissions and the medical fraternity in both Delhi and Chandigarh have acknowledged the high quality of the training imparted, the faculty and the infrastructure. Mr. Vineet Nayyar, Mr. Arun Nanda and Ms. Rajyalakshmi Rao did the honours.
The second feather in our cap has been the honour of receiving the FICCI Corporate Social Responsibility Award in the category of ‘Education, Skill Development and Livelihood’ for our flagship employability programme SMART (Skills-for-Market Training). This is the first dedicated award for SMART on a national platform. By the end of FY17-18, SMART will have trained 65,000 young men and women across India.
I would like to thank everyone who has supported the Foundation’s endeavours.
