Google would extend also scholarships for Google career certificates to youth and job-seekers in digital skills such as IT support, project management, data analytics and support local schools, too, to promote the fundamentals of online safety and digital citizenship to children through the ‘Be Internet Awesome’ programme.

In recent news, Google launches an initiative with Piramal Foundation to help 6 lakh children in India learn to read with the help of ‘Read Along’, a speech-based reading tool by Google. According to the Foundation, the learning initiative will aim to help bridge this gap and empower 3,000 plus managers to train 30,000 plus teachers across India to help improve foundational literacy among students aged 5-11 years.
