Hello Everybody! 

My name is Deepak Kumar and I am Chairperson of People First. 

Well the Global Giving Community came through again. When we started this appeal we needed ten computers to start the much needed computer vocational training at The Averill Centre ( our main headquarters). Now we now have the computers we need to restart computer training free of cost  to students below the poverty line  at The Averill Centre here in Bodhgaya, India 

 We had a thermometer outside our office wall and we coloured it in as we progressed  towards our target and every donation received a cheer from our staff and students. Let one of them Pramilla( name changed)  tell you about the value of the training she received, If I can remind you the course we offer is not home made. It is an approved government course that carries with it full recognition of the qualifying certificate everywhere in India.

I will let one of our students, Pramilla (name changed in order to meet GlobalGiving privacy Standards) explain just what this means to her.

 "For a long time we came to the Averill Centre to look at the big "thermometer" on the office wall to see how much had been raised towards our new computers. If the thermometer had gone up we cheered, we were sad when it had not. Well we are all feverishly excited now as the course we have been waiting for a long time is now about to start"

I come from a very poor background but due to the support from People First I completed my education, but without computer skills nobody will give us Job. This course will open the door to the world of employment for me, and change my life and my family's life so much for the better". 

 

Thank you for all your support,

 

Deepak

Hello Everybody.

My name is Deepak Kumar and I am Chairperson of People First.

Festive Greetings to you all.

Well the Global Giving Community came through again. When we started this appeal we needed ten computers to start the much needed computer vocational training at The Averill Centre ( our main headquarters). Now thanks to donations received we are down to needing only six.  

We have a graph outside our office wall and we colour it in as we progress towards our target and every donation receives a cheer from our staff and students. Let one of them Pramilla  tell you about the value of the training she received,

" Around this area there is not any real facility in any of the public schools to learn computer skills. they do not have computer labs. People first helped and supported me to complete my education but without computer skills and knowledge how can we get a job?

I completed the last  course at the The Averill Centre before the computers broke down one by one and I got a government recognised certificate which enabled me to get a good job at a local travel agent. I earn more than anyone in my family and we are  no longer below the poverty line. Please help girls like me to transform their lives. Absolutely"

Thank you for all your support,
