Digital Empowerment Program
IDFC FIRST Bank, in partnership with Pune City Connect, supports digital empowerment project centers across Pune, that train the youth from slum communities in basic digital literacy skills required for day-to-day functioning. This training program enhances the participant’s ability to search for information, utilize e-Services, access Government schemes, participate in social media, and undertake cashless transactions, which further enhances their skills for employment. This program has migrated to virtual training due to limitations of lockdown.
Digital skills are extremely important in today’s world. Which is why, we support the training and development of program partners, recruitment of facilitators, data management, implementation of systems and processes, community engagement and operational costs. We have five digital empowerment centers spread across different slums in Pune: Janata Vasahat, Bopodi, Sagar Colony, Kothrud, Jai Bhwani Nagar, & Aundh Centre. Since the beginning of this program in 2018, we have trained 1065 students in digital literacy skills.
At IDFC FIRST Bank, we aim to empower our customers to make a difference in the world. With this in mind, we bring you various initiatives in partnership with our partners that give you the opportunity to shoulder a cause of your choice.
Till date, we have 24+ programs that have impacted more than 50574 lives. Come, let’s together, put others FIRST.
