Mrs. Vandana Sikka, Chairperson of Infosys Foundation, USA, said, “Every day we see how computing technology is reshaping the world around us. Computing literacy is becoming increasingly important for an average person to be more productive and valuable to the economy, while purposefully contributing to our future. Through Infosys Foundation, USA, we want to ensure that lack of resources, prior skills and STEM proficiency are no longer barriers for individuals, in the Americas, seeking to advance their computing skills. From enabling computer education in K-12, to supporting research in computer science and empowering adults with IT training that enhances their employability, we will help bring computing literacy to people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities.”
In India, Infosys Foundation supports several programs aimed at alleviating hunger, promoting education, improving health, assisting rural development, supporting arts and helping the destitute. For the fiscal year 2015, Infosys Foundation plans to deploy approximately USD 40 Million towards these initiatives in India.
