Bengaluru, formerly known as Bangalore, is the capital city of the state of Karnataka. Bengaluru is sometimes referred to as the "Silicon Valley of India" because of its role as the nation's leading information technology exporter. A demographically diverse city, Bangalore is the second fastest-growing major metropolis in India. Literacy rate in Bengaluru has seen upward trend and is 87.67 per cent as per 2011 population census. Of that, male literacy stands at 91.01 per cent, while female literacy is at 84.01 per cent.
This year, in 2018, Udayan Care entered into an agreement with Convergys, a world leader in BPO industry, to support 45 girls, and with their support, decided to set up Udayan Shalini Fellowships Programme in Bengaluru. Syniverse, an international communication company, also agreed to support another 10 girls in this year to reach out to more needy girls. We have already conducted written test for selection of girls and planning to induct 55 underprivileged girls from class XI for their mentoring and higher education, in the month of October 2018.
