Bangalore: SAP India today launched Project Avsar (Meaning Opportunity) an initiative targeted at developing vocational SAP skills and placement assistance for the underprivileged youth. Project Avsar is a comprehensive and unique SAP vocational training program that will combine a class room and practical / fieldwork based approach to introduce the selected candidates to the business functions of a company and eventually provide them the necessary IT skill-sets to manage business processes using SAP software.
Project Avsar is based on the premise that a short term, practical, skill-oriented vocational training program will provide a strong career foundation and open up several employment opportunities for the underprivileged youth to succeed in the digital era.

The courses will be conducted along with SAP partner Clockwork and NGO Partner HOPE foundation, who will provide practical experience in the form of role-plays and an onsite visits to a SAP customers using SAP Business One solution. SAP will work along with our partners to provide placement assistance for the trained candidates amongst customers across India running SAP Business One solution.
The pilot project kick starts in Bangalore where the first batch of 12 candidates identified by the HOPE foundation will undergo this training. In Mumbai, the project will focus on the underprivileged women in Dharavi, and help open up new employment opportunities for them by providing SAP skills that are in high demand. The roll-out of this program is planned in a phased manner to cover key cities in the subsequent months.
