Job training in Brazil boosted by $3.3 million award
August 26, 2013
Whenever individuals searching for a job apply for a specific position, they will want to make sure they are qualified for the career. This might mean taking classes or gaining more experience. However, without funding, job training can be next to impossible for a large contingent of the population.
With this in mind, Accenture and the Accenture Foundations recently awarded $3.3 million to Brazilian social group Conexão in order to train employment hunters in the skills they need to secure a new position. The money will provide young Brazilian professionals with entrepreneurship and job readiness training.
"Our mission is to transform the life of low income Brazilian youngsters and entrepreneurs, and provide them with the skills required for success in the market," Conexão General Coordinator Marcelo Khoury stated. "The extension of the partnership between Conexão and Accenture is really exciting because it will help us bring this dream to reality for thousands more families."
Accenture Foundations funds charities across the globe. For instance, it has a presence in Japan, Canada, Kenya, Haiti and India, among other regions.
Nonprofit organizations that hope to benefit from large grant-giving opportunities can improve their chances of being selected for awards when they use nonprofit financial management programs. These solutions can generate data-driven reports for various stakeholders.
