Kumar is 18 years old and is undergoing Certificate course in the craft of food production in Hospitality trade.His parents, Ms.Latha and Mr.Perumal are no more. He has three siblings while his elder sister is married and lives in a nearby village, his brother Vijayakumar, the sister Buvaneswari are staying with him. The two are younger to him. The brother is studying 7th grade at the Thulayanatham government school and his sister is studying 11th standard in the same school.
Being parentless Kumar has been taking upon the responsibility of taking care of his siblings on his shoulders. He works in a small local bakery from evening 4’ o clock until 8 pm after his study hours at the academy and during the week end days of Saturdays and Sundays. Though the income he earns is very minimal, the family manages the essential needs by making use of the ration supplies distributed by the government civil supplies department.
Their staple food is fully met with by only the free rice they receive from the monthly rations. Consuming even a few vegetable items is a kind of luxury for them, leave alone meat. In such circumstances, Kumar always wished to equip himself in a skill that would help him to land in a good paying job as quickly as possible. He is a hard working student.
And he feels, the course he has taken up now has made his dream come true. This is because, apart from receiving free lunch and the bus fare for travelling from his village to the institution where he studies, he has the opportunity of paying the fees for the course he undergoes from the income he could earn, as stipend during his internship period. And hence, Kumar thanks the donors of GlobalGiving extending the help.
