An IT campaign for the youth in the Capital
Young people are facing what is called an opportunity divide – a gap between those who have the access, skills and opportunities to be successful and those who do not, according to IT company Microsoft.
To close this opportunity divide, Microsoft Corporation India is organising a campaign – YouthSpark.
The companywide initiative, designed to create opportunities for 300 million youth around the world over the next three years, will forge partnerships with governments, non-profit organizations and businesses. Through these partnerships, the company plans to connect the youth with greater opportunities for education, employment, and entrepreneurship.
Microsoft YouthSpark will focus on three core areas -- empowering youth by helping transform education and expand digital inclusion; unleashing future innovators by giving youth the inspiration and tools to imagine new opportunities and helping youth realize new opportunities of employability and entrepreneurship.
The campaign will take place on November 28 at Aide et Action in South Delhi. Bhaskar Pramanik, Chairman Microsoft India and Jean-Philippe Courtois, President of International Operations, Microsoft Corporation will be announcing cash grants for NGOs in India to support them to carry out their activities on these fronts.
