Speaking on the occasion, Dr. Varun Gupta said, “I am delighted to be acknowledged for my efforts, and I intend to continue my efforts to promote education and skill development. Skill-based education can be described in India as a professional acquiring through short-term training or courses outside of the formal training system that leads to employment in the informal sector. The government’s Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojna (PMKVY) scheme, which aims to promote acknowledgment and standardisation, incorporates such skills. Competence, on the other hand, must be developed both in formal and informal learning environments.
Dr Varun also appreciated Prof Nabhit Kapur’s professional interests including mental health advocacy, well-being diplomacy, international affairs, diplomacy and global peace and agreed to support with the foundation embarking its vision, “To make psychology a household term, peace, and well-being and Culture”.
