The programme was conducted in association with SAMA Foundation (non-government organisations) which works for the welfare of the deprived people in the area. The objective of the program was “Learn and Earn”. The idea behind the same was to provide these youths the knowledge and skills about computers, retail and basic management so that they could earn their living. A total of 40 students were enrolled for the first batch of the programme. In all, 120 students will be trained in three batches throughout the year. Commenting on the initiative, Renu Bohra, Director, Human Resource (HR), Schenker India Private Limited said, "This is a small contribution towards our responsibility to society. We feel happy working with the underprivileged youth of India towards building self-reliance and creating livelihood opportunities. Additionally, we will help these youth find job opportunities in leading retail companies where there is requirement for data entry operators and sales representatives. As an organisation, Schenker India is highly committed to society by supporting social projects on children, youth and sustainable environment for our bright future." Few renowned locals and social worker Vineeta also supported the programme who were invited as chief guests during the programme. At the end DB Schenker team provided all the students with complimentary bags.
