Accenture Offers Grant for Skill Development Among Youth in Thailand and Indonesia
September 18, 2012
Accenture announced that it is partnering with Plan International to invest in the skills of youth in Thailand and Indonesia. Accenture has offered Plan International a $3.5 million grant that will be paid through 2015. Accenture pledged nearly $2 million earlier this year and expects that its new programs will be invaluable to Plan International.
The economies of both Indonesia and Thailand have grown substantially in recent years. However, many young workers have a hard time developing the skills they need to thrive in the workforce. Plan International is committed to helping children, adolescents and young adults develop the skills they need to thrive in the workforce.
The grant is part of Accenture’s Skills to Succeed program. The purpose of the Skills to Succeed program is to help a quarter of a million people around the world develop the skill sets needed to find employment and advance their careers. Whether those workers are looking for a employment or interested in starting their own businesses, Accenture is committed to helping global citizens develop the skills they need to realize their goals.
Nigel Chapman is the CEO of Plan International. Chapman said he is encouraged by the partnership and expects it will help millions of youth in Indonesia and Thailand.
