Twelve youngsters were trained to work in Tally, an accounting software, thanks to the initiative of RC Chennai Mitra, RID 3232. “The workshop that began in March was going in full momentum until end-April when we had to press the pause button as Covid’s second wave began rearing its ugly head,” said Rajesh Kumar Natarajan, the club’s public image chairman.
RC Madras East has given its vocational training centre at Thoraipakkam, a city suburb, for the Tally training project of RC Chennai Mitra. Yennes Infotech headed by club member N S Saravanan provides technical support, including computers and the faculty. “Trainees must have basic accounting knowledge. Computer usage and training in the software will be provided at the centre,” he said, adding that the students were identified from across the district and other Rotary clubs. The course duration is flexible and students can attend the programme until they are confident with the application.
DGE J Sridhar inaugurated the workshop.
