Private lender Axis Bank has joined hands with Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) Srijan for mentoring 15 graduates from the Indian Institutes of Management at Kolkata, Ahmedabad and Shillong under Buddha Fellowship Programme.
These graduates have been selected by Srijan under its campus placement drive.
“Just like the corporate sector, the development sector too needs high-quality talent as the problems are more complex. There are no ‘off-the-shelf’ solutions available and therefore a dire need for fresh thinking and sharp minds,” Jacob Ninan, Chief executive, Axis Bank Foundation.
The bank recently hosted a day-long event in Mumbai along with Srijan where the selected graduates had sessions with business heads and other senior representatives from the bank.
Buddha Fellows (2017-19) are a group of IIM graduates who are getting trained in rural areas along with farmer producer companies, civil society organisations and government departments in a bid to scale up the new as well as existing projects in livelihood, health and education sectors, said Srijan’s head Ved Arya.
