Divya pursued professional education from the premier institutes in India and across the globe. She holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Economics from Hindu College, LLB from the University of London, and a Masters in Management Studies from the University of Cambridge. She had a glorious career awaiting her, first as a Financial Analyst with the Citibank and later, as a Consultant with Ernst and Young.
However, destined to bring about greater social good, Divya had a change of heart post her wedding, when she joined Safexpress, India’s largest logistics and supply chain firm, run by her father-in-law, Pawan Jain and husband, Rubal Jain. As she was spearheading the training division, she became acutely aware of the existing skill gaps in the logistics and supply chain workforce. That acted as a strong impetus in Divya deciding to launch her training and skill consulting firm, Safeducate.
As the Founder and CEO, Divya was determined to mobilise the masses and bring awareness on the logistics and SCM being the sunrise sector, especially for the ambitious youth in rural India. In addition to holding regular walk-ins, Safeducate has also been reaching out to the youth in the nearby community through mobilization drives. The venture has today grown to set up 150 centres across India and the trained counsellors at Safeducate visit households, and with the help of the Panchayat and local authorities, talk to students and parents to inspire prospective youth in the age group of 18-35 to learn the skills required for a good job in the supply chain and logistics space. Having trained over 50,000 individuals, Safeducate has also joined hands with the government to work on skill development projects in states like Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Bihar, Assam, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh, Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra, Punjab, and Orissa.
Safeducate also has a full-fledged in-house placement cell offering 100% placement assistance and career guidance for all the trainees. So far, Safeducate has associated with 100+ companies to facilitate a robust placement process. Some of the leading companies such as TCI, Big Bazaar, Flipkart, Jabong, Metro and KFC have conducted placement drives to offer job opportunities to Safeducate students.
Owing to the unprecedented work in this space, several global and national agencies have conferred Safeducate with many awards of excellence such as the ‘Contribution in SCM & Logistics Education’ by Economic Times, ‘Best Training & Skilling Organization’ by CII and the ‘Best Institute for Innovation in Skilling’ by ASSOCHAM, to name a few.
