Continuing this philosophy, Tata Power organised employability skills training programme – CareerReady in association with Antarang Foundation for the youth in Dharavi.

The CareerReady programme, whole heartedly supported by Tata Power provides a strong foundation to the students in basic work-skills and spoken english. Additionally, the students are provided complete assistance in various vocational programmes to help them be trained as beauticians, baristas and drivers in leading sectors.
The Antarang Foundation, which specialises in presenting the Employability Programme to the youth of Dharavi provided excellent support to Tata Power to ensure that students are well trained in their respective fields and are placed with desired employment.
Speaking on the noble initiative, Ashok Sethi, Executive Director – Operations, Tata Power, said, “We at Tata Power, always believe in empowering youth with the right skill set and desired qualities for better job opportunities leading them towards a brighter future. The CareerReady programme is a great step in ensuring a great future for the under privileged students of Dharavi.

We are extremely happy witnessing the enthusiasm shown by the first batch and will work hard along with Antarang Foundation to offer better opportunities for the future batches”
