All those trainees from Diya Foundation, who are proficient at working without ongoing supervision, are recruited by Diya Innovations.

“In August 2014, our trainees Nigel and Savitri, were successfully placed with Sodexo India Onsite Services at the Bengaluru campus of their client Hindustan Unilever Limited (HUL). This effort was the culmination of Sodexo and HUL’s strategic alliance on Diversity & Inclusion initiatives.
In May 2016, Savitri was moved to another project and has been replaced by Charles, another Diya trainee. The two trainees are doing a good job applying their housekeeping skills in the Unilever facility.”
