Tally Education has joined hands with Win Over Cancer, a not-for-profit organization which provides support to cancer patients. The initiative is aimed to mitigate the aftermath of socioeconomic impact on the cancer survivors and their family members, by providing skill development and helping them attain financial stability.
Cancer is a deadly disease that not only drains out an individual mentally and physically, but oftentimes leaves the patient financially exhausted with the majority of the savings spent in funding the treatment. Being cognizant of this harsh reality, Win Over Cancer will offer training and certifications on computerized accounting and Tally to cancer survivors or their family members through 1,000+ empanelled Tally Institute of Learning (TIL) centres, across more than 350 cities in India.
On partnership, Manish Chowdhary, CEO, Tally Education Pvt. Ltd, said, “There are a number of families impacted by cancer and the financial liabilities that come with it. We commend the work done by Win Over Cancer in the country, and are humbled to be partnering with them to uplift the cancer survivors and their families. Through our network, most beneficiaries will be able to get certified at their hometown. Tally will jointly work with Win Over Cancer on placing the beneficiaries in a job. Being certified on the latest GST-ready software will equip them to gain meaningful employment and become financially independent.”
CA Arun Gupta, Founder, Win Over Cancer, and a cancer fighter, commented, “More than 14.5 lakh new cancer patients are diagnosed every year. 75% of these patients have to migrate for treatment. This severely impacts their earning potential. More than 6.5 lakh families are being pushed to poverty line due to cancer every year. To combat this socioeconomic impact of cancer, in 2015, Win Over Cancer started imparting skill development trainings to members of cancer-impacted families. We are thankful to Bharat Goenka (Managing Director, Tally Solutions) to have agreed to bless this initiative. With a 1,000+ network of Tally Education empanelled centres pan India, we will be able to reach out and help hundreds of needy patients every year”.
Any member of a cancer-impacted family can apply for training under this program.
