Marathon – Run to Ignite a Life

The RCC Magnum Foundation in its quest to serve the humanity has come up with a noble project of Skill Development under Pradhan MantriYojna of “Skill India,” for the under privileged youth & women in and around Kancheepuram. In collaboration with Hand in Hand India, have launched a wellness training centre for women & a Mobile Repairing Centre for Youth in Kancheepuram. We have a target to train 500 people for the first year and then subsequently grow thereafter.

We are inspired by a Chinese proverb “If u fish for someone you feed him for a day. Instead teach him fishing and you feed him for the rest of his life”. We are going the extra mile to ensure that we support their journey of entrepreneurship with financial assistance too.
