On 23rd May 2013, Ms.Chitra from Google visited one of the STeP centre Arunodhaya Trust Hyderabad. She had a brief interactive session with the beneficiaries regarding the training program and its benefits.
The main objective of the visit was to incorporate life skills qualities like quickness, decision making, and general awareness with the STeP students apart from their regular school curriculum. Ms. Chitra interacted with our beneficiaries and discussed openly about the importance of computer and English knowledge in today’s world.She also briefed the students that how soft skills would help the human being to grow up in personal as well as professional life. The students also shared their expectations from the training program and that the employment opportunities provided by Smile which would help them a lot in shaping their future.
Later, a mock session was conducted where all the students participated enthusiastically. The most important point stressed during the session was that once recruited at the junior level, they don’t have to limit themselves to that level only and they can move up the ladder by adding qualifications and honing their skills. The program was very enlightening and the outcome was constructive in building the career of these deprived students which would help them to take right decision at a right time. The visit initiated for the students was considered as a best way for learning through this kind of innovative exposure.
