SAP India, Microsoft joins to launch skilling program “TechSaksham” 

SAP India and Microsoft on Thursday announced the launch of a joint skilling programme "TechSaksham" for empowering young women students from underserved communities to build careers in technology.

Through the joint initiative, SAP India and Microsoft aims to skill 62,000 women students in areas like artificial intelligence, cloud computing, web design and digital marketing.

The programme will work in collaboration with the AICTE Training and Learning Academy-ATAL and state collegiate education departments to support the professional development of faculty at participating institutes, a statement said.

In the first year of implementation, the initiative will train 1,500 teachers and each faculty trained will be equipped to support over 50 students in one year, impacting 60,000-75,000 students, it added.

The pan-India initiative will be implemented by Edunet Foundation that will develop future-ready skills in young women graduating in sciences, engineering, computer applications, and vocational studies.
