About Jeevakar -:

Jeevakar was born in sittilarai village near thuraiyur district on 03/06/1999. When he was at the age of 3 he lost his father in a road accident. After that his mother took care of him and his brother, she suffered a lot in surviving. She managed the growth of their children by doing agriculture in a small farm which they own by themselves in a nearby village. At the age of six jeevakar lost his mother too, since she had suffered under severe health issues.

After losing the parents they were taken by their grandmother, his grandmother was a cook who work under daily wages of 150/- per day. By using the daily wages, she helped the growth of the children who doesn’t have any support after losing their parents.

Jeevakar did his schooling upto 5th Std in a good school in sittilarai village. He continued the studies up to 12th std in a government school in thuraiyur his grandmother suffered a lot in spending for his education. But the will power of his grandmother and the full effort made by him helps him to beat the poverty and he completed his 12 std successfully. His grandmother had got a loan from a private sector and she utilized that loan for his brother’s education also.

After completing 12th std Jeeva decided to discontinue his studies due to his poverty, but after getting councelling from a tutor of SPPD (Society of poor people development).

He decided to continue his higher studies. Our team from skilled training programme went to that village to give awareness about the hotel management to the students. By seeing him they told the benefits, facilities and features of the hotel management course to Jeevakar. By hearing all about wisdom academy he decide to start his course at skilled training center.

The benefits made him to become hotelier-:

Nowadays the students from poor family background are dropping the dream of higher studies because of the term fees, afternoon lunch, travelling expenses and uniform fees etc, even though they are struggling for their basic needs. In order to defend those barriers for the students from below poverty line, skilled training programme offer them so much of benefits, in which the part of the amount can be paid as a term fees initially where the rest can be paid at the training period by the stipend amount which he will get it from the hotel. College also provides free meals, travelling expenses, uniforms and books.

By getting these benefits jeevakar started his carrier in skilled training center, he performed well and he went for his industrial exposure training for six months to a leading star hotel in kerala.he earned a stipend of Rs. 6000 per month which he utilized that money for his brother’s education. He completed his first year of education and training successfully and now by earning in his second internship training he is fulfilling his all basic needs by himself.

Jeevakar from his own words-:

After completing my 12th std I don’t think it’s possible to continue my higher studies. In that situation, I found skilled training programme is a boon that was given to me by god. It helps me a lot in different ways to become a successful man in this competitive world. All my dreams came true because of SPPD.

Thanks to SPPD.
