'The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams' , said Eleanor Roosevelt . For Lalrindinki Tariang, a twenty five year old Girl from Shillong, life is both. A beautician at Wan'zBeauty Parlor, Shillong, Lalrindinki was not always this lucky. To support her family of eight, including five siblings and her mother and father, who is a psychiatric patient, she worked as a domestic worker in various homes.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Lalrindinki had high-quality learning during her four month's course and gained knowledge and skills to be an ideal beautician. She was one of the best students in the batch. After completing training on the job, she got placed as a beautician at Wanaz Beauty Parlor in Shillong. She is drawing an entry level salary of Rs. 2500/- per month. Having realized her dream, she plans to be a successful entrepreneur by establishing herself as a well-known beautician.
How will this project solve this problem?
The transformation that Lalrindinki has undergone is no mean feat. From being the youngest of her parent's six children, to dreaming an almost impossible dream of becoming a beautician, she has grown to be a confident young woman. A class nine dropout, Lalrindinki now prides herself for being able to support her family and successfully achieving her true calling. By opening her own beauty parlor this girl will be able to become role model and inspire many other women from community to progress
