We believe technology is the only enabler that will ensure every individual, every business, every institution and every sector is included in India’s growth. The Digital4Growth IncTank has been constituted with an aim to make digital inclusion an essential element to chart the nation’s transformation story,” said Deb Deep Sengupta, President and Managing Director, SAP Indian Subcontinent. “SAP is committed to proactively seek collaboration on all our initiatives to contribute to grassroots transformation. A key pillar of our digital inclusive initiatives is Code Unnati and we hereby welcome RPG Group as our partner in this collective endeavour.
The last year launched Code Unnati also took a next leap during the event as a new partnership with RPG Group was also announced. The new ally will work together to reach the prospected socio-economically challenged citizens and also set up Code Unnati mobile vans in the towns of Savli and Samlaya in Gujarat along with 20 nearby villages.
The project aims to educate school students including dropouts and women devoid of education.
