SGBS Trust's Unnati bags Dr Modi award

Senior Citizens’ Club (Govt) Halasuru, Bengaluru, a charitable organisation, presented the SGBS Trust’s initiative – ‘Unnati’, a vocational training and social transformation programme – Dr Modi’s Award for 2014 for its contribution towards creating employment.

Started in October 2003 with the purpose of helping the underprivileged and unemployed youth get employment, the programme assures 100 per cent employment for the downtrodden who undergo training imparted by it.

“The motto of Unnati - ‘learn, earn, stand tall’ - is aimed at not only enabling them to become ‘employable’ and engage in a gainful job, but also transform them into responsible citizens of the country. This being a great service to society, it has been selected for the award,” SCC president Lalitha Das said.

She said SCC, for the past 24 years, has been identifying organisations which contribute to society and present them an award in name of Dr Modi, who gave eyesight to lakhs of people during his lifetime.

Unnati Programme, which supports close to 150 students in each batch, conducts training programmes for five batches every year.
