HSBC Skills for Life is a five year INR 100 crore commitment by HSBC India that will focus on employment and entrepreneurship-linked skill development of disadvantaged young people, upskilling of teachers and educators, and women’s empowerment through financial education and livelihood enhancement. Under the umbrella of this programme, HSBC and Swades Foundation have forged a five-year INR 50 crore partnership that will directly skill thousands of disadvantaged young people across the country and indirectly impact and inspire many others.
As part of this partnership, Swades Foundation has announced a ‘Request for Proposal’ seeking proposals that will focus on employment and entrepreneurship-linked skill development of disadvantaged young people. The grant size is between INR 25 lakhs and INR 60 lakhs for projects with a duration of 12 to 18 months. January 31, 2016 is the last day for submission of proposals and NGOs who are registered in India as a Trust, Society or a Section 25/ Section 8 Company, and having a valid FCRA registration are eligible to apply.
