Allcargo LogisticsÂ’ CSR arm has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Maharashtra State Skill Development Society (MSSDS) to train over 7,400 youth in Maharashtra. This initiative will help Allcargo to enhance its scope of work under its skilling initiative Â‘NipunÂ’ and would substantially contribute to the Government of MaharashtraÂ’s Skilling Maharashtra Mission.
Trainees will be primarily skilled in the fields of heavy and light commercial vehicles, warehousing and unarmed security guards. The initiative aims to provide placements to at least 70 per cent of the candidates. The initial training batch will start in Uran (Navi Mumbai) and will be replicated in other areas.
Arathi Shetty, Non-Executive Director, Avashya Foundation, said, Â“We are committed to our cause of skilling India to create suitable employability and do our bit to improve the standard of living of our country. We are extremely excited to work with the Government of Maharashtra on this initiative and look forward to more such associations.Â”
