Success Story: Paras Parmer (Name Changed)

Paras Parmer residing in Behrampura area of Ahmedabad comes from a family of seven. He used to work as a guard, in the night shift for a security agency. He received a pay of Rs.6000 per month, however he was not able to meet his expenses with his income. He always had a keen interest to become an electrician however he could not afford the formal training programme. Paras came to know about the Nirman programme through a friend who had visited the Nirman center in their area.

He says “There was a ray of hope for me, when I heard about the programme. I enrolled my name for the Electrical Training Batch at the Behrampura center. Initially I had my doubts about the facilities that would be provided at the center since the center charged a very meager fee, but I decided to join the programme since the timing of the session was appropriate for me since I did not have to miss out on my job. When I attended my first session all my doubts about the working of the programme were cleared. The trainers gave me formal training in plate earthing, wiring, importance of personal safety and the importance of savings. The theory sessions were accompanied with its practical applications”.

On the completion of the course Paras received a certificate and a tool kit from the center. Due to the certificate Paras was able to get a job at the torrent plant. He now earns Rs. 10000 a month and his standard of living has improved. He remarks “SAATH’s training programme helped me a lot. This has been only possible because of the skills that I have received through this course. I am thankful to Saath for the same”.

Dinesh, 26, is the son of an auto rickshaw driver, a resident of Gomtipur. He has completed his B.com. The irregular income of his father posed a problem for his family. Dinesh worked at Photocam. His sister had seen road show conducted by the SAATH team, advised him to join UMEED. Dinesh visited the Saraspur centre and was very impressed. He quit his job and enrolled himself for the tally course. He expresses “I was extremely eager to learn. The trainers were more like mentors rather than teachers. The environment was such that we could get our queries and doubts solved at any time. It was an environment that allowed us to grow as individuals.” Dinesh got placed at Eureka Forbes. However he quit this job after one week as he was not satisfied with the work assigned to him. He approached the UMEED center for a new job. The placement cell took immediate initiative and set up another interview for Dinesh for the position of relation executive at HBL. He now earns Rs.7,000 per month and is extremely happy at HBL.

Success Story:

Name Mayuri Raval (Name Changed)
Age: 19 Years
Mayuri raval, 19 a resident of Bapunagar comes from a family of seven. Mayuri is a third year B.com student at PD pandya Commerce College and has to travel a distance of almost 10 Km to reach her college. Her father works at a textile finishing workshop while her elder brother is an estate agent (realtor).  The monthly family income of Rs.20,000 is enough to meet the demands of the family but it leaves no room for future savings. Mayuri would return home from college at 12:00 and thus always had an ample amount of time for other activities or for a part time job. She felt that instead of wasting her time she could utilize it and get a job and earn some extra money. Her elder sister who had witnessed one of the SAATH road shows suggested her to visit the UMEED Saraspur center. Mayuri visited the center and the trainers at the center gave her details about the courses offered, the timings, the charges of the program and other relevant details. Mayuri had always had a keen interest in the nursing field however due to her mediocre performance at school level she was not able to pursue further education in the nursing field. She immediately enrolled her name for the nursing course at the center. The course timings of 1:30 to 5:30 were perfect for her as it meant that she did not have to miss out on her studies and also had ample amount of time after the completion of the day’s lectures. She describes her experience as “The UMEED course acted as a turning point for me. It was an opportunity which I felt I had to grab. The first thing I learned at the center was that the main goal of a nurse should be to provide help to others, without thinking of any kind of personal gains. Along with training in the nursing department I received training in spoken English, basic computers and personality development. To develop our social skills the trainers at the center conducted a number of activities on Saturdays which gave me a chance to bond with my batch-mates. On the completion of the course I got a job at Ashirwad hospital which is extremely near to my house and thus I do not have to waste my time on conveyance. I am able to balance my time between studies and the job and still have some time left for recreation. I hope to become a part of the Government nursing management programme in the near future “.
