Playablo, a Bangalore-based startup that provides gamified learning and skill assessment platform for CBSE and ICSE students of grades 1 to 5, has tied up with Unnati, a Bangalore-based NGO to help re-skill young adults. Its aim is to empower youngsters from tier 2 and tier 3 cities as well as those studying in native language schools to become job-ready. Playablo will focus on advancing key skills such as spoken English that are essential for a career in the corporate environment. It does so by using an amalgamation of technology and game play elements to enhance learning.
As a part of the initiative’s first step, Playablo in association with Unnati will train 5000 of their students across the country on their spoken English skills. The learning would happen using the Ed-Tech company’s recently launched learning platform specifically focused towards skill development of underprivileged youth via android app and web.
Dheeraj Sharma, founder and CEO of Playablo stated, “Although India has a great education system, there are far too many youngsters who do not have access to it. When these youngsters join the workforce, they are unable to reach their full potential. They neither have the social skills nor the communication skills to grow in a career. This is a potential crisis that our nation is facing.
At Playablo, we have always believed in making a true difference in the way our youngsters learn. So far, we have had many instances where parents have praised Playablo for making learning fun and effective for their children. We believe that we can leverage this platform to truly make a difference in the lives of youngsters who are struggling to become employable.”
