This initiative is a part of the long-standing efforts of both Zensar and Tomorrow Trust to enable students to develop into employable individuals by learning new skills, receive practical knowledge on current trends in the industry and understand career opportunities. The laptops will be used to impart digital literacy to students who are interested in pursuing a career in this field.

Sandeep Kishore, Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director, Zensar said, “It gives me immense pleasure to see our South African team working with bright, young minds to help them achieve their life’s dreams. As a company, we are a Living Digital entity and to enable these students to be digitally literate professionals, will propel them to contribute gainfully to the future of this great country.”  

Speaking on this occasion, James Donald, CEO, Tomorrow Trust said, “Zensar has supported many of our initiatives which has resulted in helping students attain confidence and learn critical technology skills. We look forward to working closely with them across our projects to increase our reach of digitally training more children.”

“In the region, Zensar is fully committed to working towards contributing to the growth of the ICT sector with our Skills Development Program. One of the starting point lies in imparting digital literacy to the next generation of South African technology professionals. In Tomorrow Trust, we see like-minded commitment and focus on this critical need in education,” said Harish Lala, Senior Vice President and Head, Africa.

The event was attended by the teams from both Zensar and Tomorrow Trust. Attendees got the opportunity to listen to the experience of a student who shared his journey in the program and his learnings. The students receiving the laptops interacted with ICT professionals from Zensar who took them through the basics and gave them some insights into working in this sector.
