Centum Foundation starts program to skill deaf youth
Centum Foundation, which is the CSR wing of Centum Learning, has launched an initiative to train deaf youth in India.
This is in partnership with the US-based Global Reach Out (GRO) which is a non-profit organization run by deaf individuals.
GRO has trained over 1,000 deaf youth in many countries like India, Kenya, and Thailand.
The first batch has 40 students who are graduates from various streams. The program includes workplace sensitivity training sessions to potential employers so companies assimilate people with disabilities more effectively at their workplaces.
