Success Story: Jayana Patel (Name Changed)

 Jayana is 33 year old married and lives with her husband and 2 children in      Baroda. Jayana got married 14 years ago. Before marriage she used to live with her parents, 2 sisters and a brother. Her father was working as an accountant and in 1998 suffered an accident in which he lost one of his legs. After which the family came under financial crunch as her father being only earning member in the family. It became very difficult to bear hospital expenses and household expenses. Due to this the children couldn’t continue their education. After 2 years her father started working again as an accountant in a nearby hospital but wasn’t able to earn enough. Jayana was 10th drop out. Remembering that time Jayana says, “It was really a difficult time for our family. Money was a continuously pressing issue. My parents worked very hard and got all 3 daughters married”.

Jayana’s husband initially used to work in the diamond industry in Baroda, earning Rs. 2,000-3,000 per month. At that time her father in law used to support them to run their home. After this they shifted to Surat in 2004 where her husband started earning Rs. 4,000 per month. In 2008 due to economic crisis in the diamond industry her husband lost his job and they moved back to Baroda. He got a job in Construction Company in Baroda.

Jayana says, “I learnt sewing in Surat and that helped my husband by earning some extra income. After moving back to Baroda I was not getting enough work in sewing so I started doing small odd jobs. However from bottom of my heart, I always wanted to study further.

In 2014 Jayana got to know about Saath’s Skills to Succeed programme. She adds, “In May Anil Kaka (Saath’s Road Show team member) came to my house. He explained me about the retail management course and also gave me job guarantee after completion of the course and I would also get a certificate, that would satisfy my need of further education. After this I visited the centre and met Kalpeshbhai (Centre Coordinator). Kalpeshbhai gave me detailed information about course, what would my module cover and I was very impressed that life skills, communication, English speaking was also included in the course. And thus I joined the course in May, 2014.

Her faculty says Jayana enjoyed her training and was quite an eager learner. Regarding her experience Jayana shares, “I’ll never forget the support that I got from the staff at the centre and I would specially like to thank Ashesh Sir, Kalpesh Sir and Parulben through their help I have overcome my stage fear and I have built up my confidence. They have always motivated me. 10 days before the completion of my training and Kalpeshbhai my trainer arranged for a job interview and I got a job as a Help Desk Office at Omnisoft Technology Pvt. Ltd. This was the first time I gave an interview”. Smiling quite broadly she says, “I was so happy, that I got a job in my first interview only, it was quite an achievement for me.” She is now earning Rs. 5,500 per month and her employer is also quite happy with her work. One of her elder sister after seeing Jayana’s success has recently joined the retail course at the same centre. Jayana says, “Now me and my husband jointly earn Rs. 15,000 per month and we don’t have to ask for support from our parents. I want to work hard now and get an even better job. With a broad smile she says “My dream is to move and settle abroad”.

Success Story:Vinu Amritbhai Parmar

19 year old Vinu comes from the Santra village of Patan, where he had completed his second year of Bachelors in Commerce. When asked about how he came to Ahmedabad, getting a bit emotional he shares, “I used to live with my parents and younger brother in the village. And our source of income was farming through which we used to earn Rs. 70,000-80,000 annually. The college fee for my one semester was Rs. 1,750. It was becoming difficult for my parents to pay for me and my brother’s education. That time I decided to come to Ahmedabad to work and earn my tuition fees. My decision was opposed by my family, but I still decided to come here against their wishes”.

Vinu’s older brother is been living in Ahmedabad for the past 8 years, he is currently working with Torrent Power on a contract basis as an electrical fitter. He earns Rs 7,000-8,000 a month. Vinu’s brother was also not in favour of him moving to Ahmedabad. Talking about his early days in Ahmedabad Vinu says, “I was little scared and lost in the city, as drinking (alcohol) was very common here in the area where I lived, I was surprised to see so many youth are addicted to drinking.” He started working with his brother, but was not earning enough. 3 months later one day, Mr. Pravin the facilitator at Odhav center of Skills to Succeed program met Vinu and explained to him about training course and what the opportunities are thereafter for him. Vinu said: “I joined the course as I was assured job after completion of the training. Initially I found the training difficult and for the first few days I felt very lonely. My English was weak, my communication skills were poor and I was not confident enough. I was also scared to ask questions in the class as I would fear that other candidates will laugh at me. My trainers realised that I am shy and they gave special attention to me. They encouraged me to participate in class. This boosted my confidence. My English has also improved and now I can converse little but in English.”

After completing the training, placement cell connected him to MyRecharge. He started working as an independent retailer with them, where he provides mobile recharge services. Vinu says. “This work needs lot of networking. Now I am confident to talk to people and market myself and grow my work. My supervisor is quite happy with my monthly sales. I earn Rs. 4,000-5,000 per month but I need to earn and save more before I go back to my studies. I dream to become a lawyer one day.

To pursue my dream, I needed some additional income and thought of taking up another job. I went for campus interview organized by Saath, there I gave an interview to Reliance Insurance Company. This was totally a new experience for me. During my interview I was asked to sell a pen, which I did successfully. Interviewers were happy with my selling skills and offered me a job of Customer Service Executive with a salary of 6,000/month. Now I earn around Rs.11,000-12,000/month and pretty soon I will go back to college.

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”.

But they don’t have proper training for this. So to solve this Saath started employability programs, not only in Gujarat but also in Rajasthan.

Objectives of the Programme:

1.    To train disadvantaged youth, aged 18-30 years, between 180 - 300 hours and ensure they are placed and try to support of them in relevant jobs with assurance of minimum wages and opportunity for career advancement

2.    To introduce minimum three innovations that would directly impact retention, skill enhancement, and program sustainability

Success Story: Hema Raulji (Name Changed)

Hema lives with her family of 5 people. Due to her bad financial condition of her family she could studied only upto 12th standard and then she helped her mother in the household work. She always wanted to economically help her family but was not getting any proper direction until she met the road show team of Umeed programme. Knowing about the courses and the job opportunity she finally decided to join the Beauty parlour job. Initially her family was bit hesitant but finally they gave her the permission to join the course.

After completing the course through the job placement cell of Umeed programme, she was offered a job of Beautician at Nitin beauty parlour and now she earns 3500 rupees/ month.

When asked about her Umeed experience she told us “Umeed has been a change factor in my life, through programme apart from training I learned so many added life skills like spoken English, basic computers and much more. Umeed has helped me to become independent and also now I can financially help my family as well, for that I would like to thank Saath and their Umeed programme who provides a platform and job opportunities to girls like me from the vulnerable background”.

During January’14 to March’14, total 9 batches were carried out covering Gujarat and Rajasthan. Profiling of the students was undertaken by the placement cell at each centre.

Students were provided counseling during the batch for guidance and placement support to the students. Below mentioned table shows the status for 3 months.
