Dear Friends,

The loss of a spouse is beyond compare. On one side, widows are overwhelmed by the feelings of sadness and grief while on the other side there is a struggle to get a dignified living especially for the ones belonging to the vulnerable section of the society.

Today, we are humbled to share about our latest collaboration with The Loomba Foundation – a United Nations (UN) accredited global charity supporting widows and their children. The collaboration will facilitate employment-oriented skill training for widows and their children in India with focus on Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh. Tech Mahindra Foundation will support the training needs of the students selected by the Loomba Foundation at its state-of-the-art SMART Academies in Healthcare and Digital Media.

The initiative was announced at a lunch hosted by the British High Commissioner to India, Sir Dominic Asquith KCMG, to mark the initiative ‘CYCLING FOR WIDOWS BY CHRIS PARSONS’ from Kanyakumari to Srinagar, 4500 Kilometres in 45 days.

Adding to our feeling CP Gurnani, MD & CEO, Tech Mahindra, said, “I am confident that this collaboration will bring joy, happiness and employment opportunities for the widows and their families” Lord Raj Loomba CBE, Philanthropist, Founder of The Loomba Foundation and a member of the House of Lords, added, “At the Loomba Foundation, it is our endeavour to empower 100,000 widows and their children over the next 5 years in India along with partners like Tech Mahindra Foundation. We laud Tech Mahindra’s earnest efforts in enhancing the employability opportunities for the widows and their children.”

Stay connected as we continue to stand beside these sisters and live by our philosophy of #RISE….

Warm Regards,
Tech Mahindra Foundation
