One such program, the Village BPO Pvt. Ltd., specializes in getting outsourced work done from rural India. Villagers with little or no education can become BPO employees after an intensive training course. This not only gives them a new, steady source of income but the confidence to tackle any problems. Meet Samik Ghosh, the CEO of the Village BPO. Help him to keep everyone’s Head Held High!
