Citigroup partners with Medha
Citi will provide financial and technical support to deliver 21st century skills training, career counseling and mentorship, and internship and full-time job opportunities for 2,500 disadvantaged youth.
“One of India’s greatest strengths is that 50% of the population is below the age of 25, and accordingly 12 million people join the workforce each year. Herein also lies a potential weakness – quite a large portion of this young population lacks the skills required to succeed in today’s growing and rapidly changing economy. Medha addresses this issue by working with young students before they leave the gates of their educational institution,” said Alok Karkera, Head – India Public Sector in Citibank N.A, and CSR champion for the project.
We are honored to be working with Citi to expand our program across the state and thank them for their continuing support.
