"The time spent with students has been very encouraging – they are inquisitive, very sharp, and absorb information very quickly. Our team feels very proud to be associated with the Junior Achievement programme and we are very happy that we took the decision to commit our time to this."

We support Junior Achievement (JA) India, an organisation focused on introducing students to the working world. JA programmes help prepare young people for the real world by improving their understanding of the workplace, the various factors impacting it, and the possible roles they can play.
The programme focuses on practical education about the economy and business and aims to encourage entrepreneurial spirit, and personal development, and facilitate access to the employment market for school students. It gives students a better understanding of the vast number of employment opportunities available to them.
Our people are involved with the programme in Bengaluru, Chennai, Delhi, Kolkata and Mumbai. It is a matter of great pride for us that this year our staff helped initiate the JA Mini Factory Model programme across cities in India. Our volunteers were delighted to see the enthusiasm and passion for learning demonstrated by students.
The Transactions and Restructuring team has led the way by volunteering for this initiative and offering their consistent support as mentors for students.
