Aricent, Nasscom Foundation launch 'ARISE'

 Aricent, a CSR initiative of Aricent Technologies, and Nasscom Foundation have jointly announced the launch of their Aricent Skills for Employability Program (ARISE).

The initiative focuses on creating greater employment opportunities for 3,400 college students, by upskilling engineering undergraduates across Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Telangana, and Delhi-NCR regions.

This on-campus programme will engage with 16 tier II and III engineering colleges, providing the necessary job skills to students from underserved communities, the joint statement said.

The skills will range from basics like SDLC methodologies, to programming languages like JAVA, and database management languages like SQL, API creation through JDBC, project design, and software testing, the statement added.

“A win-win for both the society and the industry, the programme serves as a great example of how CSR money can be used for the benefit of creating more employment opportunities for the ever-expanding young population of our country,” said Shrikant Sinha, CEO of Nasscom Foundation.

“With the help of Nasscom Foundation, we intend to create a mutually beneficial situation for young students and the industry — where the industry gets highly skilled graduates right from the college and the students get enhanced employment opportunities,” Ashwani Lal, Chief Operations and Quality Officer, and Chairman of the CSR Board at Aricent, said.
