Dell Kushal Kendra is a step forward in this direction, which will empower the community to learn the digital way and give them a means to livelihood. I applaud this initiative by Dell Technologies and Swami Vivekananda Rural Community College to create such employment opportunities for the marginalized youth of the region and the community,” commented Sri V Narayanasamy, Honourable Chief Minister of Puducherry.

Dell Kaushal Kendra will educate and equip the youth in computer and hardware manufacturing and support services, which will make them readily employable technicians, who can add value in any organization from day one.  We hope to offer some of them jobs at our manufacturing plant near Chennai, or as field support technicians in our service network, which will further provide them a source of livelihood.”
