On the occasion of International Youth Day on 12 August, the United Nations and State Bank of India are organized a Dialogue on Youth for Development in New Delhi.
The Dialogue showcased innovations by six SBI Youth For India Fellows who are on a thirteen month-long Fellowship programme with select non-governmental organizations across parts of rural India, working in the areas of education, skill development, health and sanitation and e-governance.
The SBI Youth For India Fellowship enables India’s brightest young minds to volunteer their time to work on some of the country’s most pressing development challenges. Presently, the SBI Youth For India Fellowship is supporting 60 Fellows, 55 percent of whom are women, working in 35 locations across 10 states in India.
