MUMBAI: Pharmaceutical major Dr. Reddy's Laboratories has started a 'livelihood advancement business school (LABS)' In Hanoi, Vietnam, in partnership with Plan International, a global organization dedicated to children.

Since the inception of LABS in 2000, over 12,500 youths have been trained and employed under the programme. The programme, initially started in Hyderabad, has now been extended across India.
