DBS Bank India and TRRAIN Collaborate To Facilitate Youth Employment

DBS Bank India collaborates with TRRAIN (Trust for Retailers & Retail Associates of India) to support youth from low-income households by providing them with long-term employment opportunities.


Under the partnership, DBS will facilitate the skills training and employment of individuals affected by the pandemic and persons with disabilities through a one-year-long pan-India program, a combination of classroom and online training sessions. The training will be conducted at TRRAIN centres across major cities such as Mumbai, Chennai, Delhi-NCR region, Bengaluru, Kolkata, Ahmedabad, among others.


Once the training is complete, candidates will be hired by leading industry partners in the retail and e-commerce sector across Tier-1 and Tier-2 cities. The program aims to train and secure jobs for more than 800 individuals by the end of 2021.

Shoma Narayanan, Executive Director - Group Strategic Marketing & Communications, DBS Bank India, said, “DBS is committed to making meaningful contributions to society and creating a lasting impact beyond banking. We are actively engaging with initiatives to build back better in the aftermath of the pandemic. Our partnership with TRRAIN is one such initiative as it will help upskill youth as well as the differently-abled and facilitate access to job opportunities.”
