The ‘Saksham Scholarship Programme’ focuses on enhancing employability and skill-building among young women from underprivileged backgrounds, through training courses such as animation, graphic designing, fashion technology, beautician courses, etc. As part of the programme, 20 women applied for the scholarships for skills training of their choice. The selection process included aptitude tests and personal interviews. The scholarship amount is used for course fees, conveyance and stationery.
An award ceremony was organised on 29th July 2019, to announce awardees of the Saksham Scholarships. An ice-breaking activity was conducted at the event with the Bloomberg team and participants for rapport building, after which the Bloomberg team and the participants were divided into 7 groups of 4-5 members for the group discussion. The Bloomberg team helped the participants to confidently talk about their chosen course. The participants presented the details of their course, the reason for their choice and how it will help them become financially independent. After the presentation, Bloomberg and the UWM team awarded Saksham Scholarships to ten women.
