upGrad launches COVID-19 Awareness Program

Mumbai-based edtech major upGrad announced the launch of a ‘COVID19 Awareness Program’, through which it will be facilitating donation towards the PM-CARES Relief Fund. The ‘COVID-19 Awareness Program’ is a 5-day long online program, where domain experts will give live talks on safeguarding one’s finances, and career along with mental health in the current scenario.

The program can be accessed by anyone FREE of cost, on prior registration. For every participant who registers and completes the online program, upGrad will be contributing Rs 10 per participant to the Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s recently announced COVID-19 Relief (PM-CARES) Fund.

Mayank Kumar, Co-Founder & MD, upGrad, who will also be taking one of the sessions during the awareness drive, said, “Infodemic has superseded pandemic, aggravating the panic and negativity around us. From complex questions like - Will the economy head for a super recession; Should I save now or invest now; to personal questions like, Will my kids be able to complete education this year – there are a thousand questions and a zillion opinions floating around. As a leader in the education space, I take it as our duty to now educate the masses with the correct information and implication of the situation.”

The expert sessions will be hosted live, allowing for active interactions and query resolution for the participants. Given the diversity of topics from workforce management to mental health management, upGrad is expecting participation from every nook and corner of India, be it college students, homemakers, c-suite executives or retired professionals.

upGrad seeks to onboard 1 lakh participants and thereby plans to contribute Rs 1 million to the Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s recently announced COVID-19 Relief (PM-CARES) Fund.
