Vaishali, now employed

Name                                     : Vaishali Rachappa Koli.

Age                                         : 19 years

Education                              : 12th STD


I am from a family of 5. My father is daily wage labourer and my mother is a house wife. I am very happy to share my joy with you. I passed my 12th exam with good marks. But after finishing my exams, I was not able to decide where to engage myself in this vacation, and so I was at home. Members from the project team came to my house once and gave information about the ' smile' twin e-learning course at their organization, and I enrolled for it.

The teachers impressed me with how kind they were. They also helped us to enroll in different activities in this course. The visits to the mall and lectures about retail management built our confidence to apply for jobs.

This course has made me feel independent. My family members and neighbours all believe this course has had a positive effect. 

I am very grateful to the project staff.
