IGT partnered with CAP Foundation & Empower Pragati for a program titled ‘Project Livelihood’ to train underprivileged young women in the skills and technologies, which enhanced their employability. IGT sponsored the education of over 500 young women by operating centers in Delhi and Chennai with specially designed courses, qualifying these girls to realize their full potential and ensure job opportunities in 21st-century workplaces.
IGT’s role in Project Livelihood was to create opportunities through education and skillset to provide tangible, enduring economic opportunities for low-wealth families and the communities in which they reside.
