Rural India will create 1.2 million new jobs in milk-related activities over the next 10 years, and those jobs would provide livelihoods and food security for a large population of the country, said RS Sodhi, executive director of the Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation (Amul ). . The dairy sector has the potential to create a large number of new jobs, business opportunities and sustainable incomes for families, thereby ensuring food security, he told a gathering at Amul’s plant in Anand on Tuesday. The country’s dairy sector would do well over the next 50 years, especially when many neighboring countries faced milk shortages, Mr Sodhi added. SAP and Amul announced a joint public relations effort focused on knowledge transfer and technology capacity building that will transform the lives of 1.5 million people in Gujarat, including children, youth, youth, women and farmers. The initiative was designed to focus on social entrepreneurship, nurturing a skilled workforce, digital inclusion and bridging the gender equality gap for the community. Under this program, more than 1,000 children, youth and women would acquire digital literacy and skills in computer labs set up in 60 schools. Around 250 teachers would be trained, while over 20,000 women would receive financial literacy and entrepreneurship. Kulmeet Bawa, President, MD, SAP Indian Subcontinent, emphasized the importance of digital literacy. Rural India has a digital literacy rate of 25% while urban India has it at 61%. “Technology can act as a catalyst in shaping India’s path to an inclusive and sustainable economy. While urban development projects such as smart cities and futuristic mobility reflect this potential, India’s true progress lies in the development of its villages,” he said. “We all need to work together as individuals and companies and contribute to the education, empowerment and digital literacy of students and women,” he added. Over the past two decades, SAP and Amul have worked together to streamline business processes and drive digital transformation for the dairy cooperative, leveraging SAP’s core digital ERP and supply chain solutions. Now, to advance literacy and inclusion at grassroots level, SAP and Amul are expanding their collaboration to create a digitally inclusive ecosystem that provides technical education and professional support in the areas of coding, English proficiency and socio-economic opportunities. The collaboration would also create a STEM (science, technology, engineering and math)-based learning environment to help students in marginalized regions have a smoother transition into the labor market and improve job opportunities, SAP India said.
