On January 5, 2015, the ICICI Group completed 60 years since its establishment in 1955. In keeping with our their role in nation-building, we they celebrated this milestone with the launch of our their 'Digital Village' initiative. We have undertaken this project in the village of Akodara in Gujarat's Sabarkantha district. This initiative is centred around 3Cs – a Cashless payment ecosystem; a Comprehensive approach spanning education, healthcare & skill development; and making the village Connected, with a wi-fi tower and internet & social media presence.
Even as we they have expanded and diversified, we they have remained focussed on accelerating development in our country through our their social initiatives. In 2008, we they established the ICICI Foundation for Inclusive Growth. Our focus has been specifically on four areas: education, healthcare, skill development and financial inclusion. In 2013, we they set up the ICICI Academy for Skills to provide vocational training free-of-cost to under-privileged youth. The Academy now has nine centres across the country. Under our their financial inclusion initiative, since 2010, we they have opened 19 million accounts and have reached out to over 15,000 villages.
