Rohit Khandelwal, HR director, South Asia, Avery Dennison, said, “We are extremely delighted to partner with Magic Bus for such a noble initiative as it aims to make the youngsters self-sufficient, collaborative, agile, flexible and develop a mindset which is inclined towards innovation, creativity, reasoning and analytical thinking. This initiative is also in sync with the central government’s vision of ensuring the education of youngsters for a better and brighter future.”
The project will enable first-generation adolescent learners studying in government schools to demonstrate increased perceived self-efficacy and resilience. It will also allow improved parental support and participation in school education through activating and strengthening School Management Committees (SMCs). The project will collaborate with the schools and community to address the twin domains of life skills and work readiness alongside creating an enabling environment.
