Empowering youth... Transforming lives… Making a Difference…
Thanks to the generous people who believe our project is progressing positively and for helping out our youth in grading themselves as skilled trainees.
This project has provided excellent educational opportunities to the growing youth for holistic growth and development, which will put them on the path toward breaking the pervasive cycles of poverty and also have bright future in their career.
Sasidharan is one of the beneficiaries of the project, belonging to the village of Aithaampatti .His father Rajendran is a washerman by profession. His work involves washing of clothes in the water bodies. His mother takes up odd jobs to support the family with three daughters and a son Sasidharan.
The years of extreme drought and drying of local water bodies have been making life miserable for washer like Sasidharan’s father, now a days as he is forced to walk or travel by pedal cycle for miles to find some source of water for washing clothes. This takes a heavy toll of the already poor economic productivity of the family.
Despite the these poverty stricken conditions, the parents of Sasidharan have been able to ensure the completion of schooling of all their children, especially the daughters. They were pinning their hopes on Sasidharan to support the family in the immediate future to relieve themselves from the debts and settling the daughters in marriage which is considered a big responsibility . But the bleak future most of the rural youth face in finding employment was a big worrying factor.
And after becoming aware of the well-paid employment scope in the Hospitality Industries through SPPDs Women SHG of the village he opted to join the two year course. During his course period he was offered free meals, travelling allowance each day which reduced the burden of the family and helped to continue his education without difficulties. With continuous training and of more practical learning he gained confidence.
He appeared for his final exams in June 2016 and successfully passed out. He was appointed in Manipal County, Bengaluruhotel as a Baker. Now he draws a monthly salary of Rs.12,000/- Sasidharan and his family members are extremely happy. And they want to thank the donors for covering the day to day expenses of Sasidharan during his college days and SPPD for sensitizing them on the course and the continued support.
We hope to help more youth like Sasidharan. We seek your support to fulfill the dreams of such youth and provide them with an opportunity for a better life.
