The inception batch of 15 students of the Community Training Programme successfully passes out. This Training Programme is a social initiative from arvato & one of its technology major clients to bring together youth from the weaker sections of society and provide them access to new technology and basic computing. The first batch of the Training Program passed out in October 2008 with all the students passing the program with flying colours and easily surpassing the qualification criteria.

Through this program our aim is to narrow the educational gap in India & empower the youth from the disadvantaged sections of society by providing them the necessary impetus for their professional lives ahead” says Ankush Bhandari, Country Manager, arvato India.
