Accenture has decided to make 250,000 unskilled and semi-skilled people around the world job- or business-ready by 2015.

Accenture and Accenture Foundation will invest over $100 million into this initiative called Skills to Succeed’ . It will seek to educate people, and build skills that enable them to participate in and contribute to areas like IT, BPO, hospitality and retail .

India is likely to be a significant beneficiary of this campaign as the country has over 450 million unskilled and semi-skilled people under 35. The company has roped in Dr Reddy’s Foundation and Nasscom Foundation to provide BPO skills training to underprivileged youth from rural India. It has entered into a partnership with IGNOU to offer a diploma course on BPO services. “With Nasscom Foundation, we will train adolescent girls and young women from economically backward areas in animation skills,” said Rekha Menon, executive director in Accenture India.
