Thank you for helping students with disabilities receive valuable computer training. You are giving them a chance to succeed and find a good job.
In India, people with disabilities are ostracized and neglected. But today you are giving people like Sangeetha hope for a brighter future.
Sangeetha contracted polio when she was an infant and was forsaken by her family. Her only known relative is her uncle who took the responsibility to put her in an orphanage. Since both her legs have been affected, she has to use a wheelchair.
Sangeetha received a good education and has a Masters in Commerce. Now she is in the process of becoming fully sustainable and has been looking for a job. Sadly, she had nowhere to stay after she graduated and she had difficulties finding a job because of her disability. Her uncle didn't want her home.
After searching for a steady job and a good hostel, she decided to join our computer training program. When she heard about the government certification courses that we offered, she was determined to complete the certification classes in computer training. And after enrolling in our program, she is so happy to have found a good education and new place to live.
Thank you for providing opportunities to those with disabilities in India.
Krishnamurthy is a young man from a rural village. His family is poor, so he had been working on a farm in order to augment their income. One day, while working with a piece of farm machinery, he had an accident that crushed his fingers. Due to insufficient first aid, Krishnamurthy eventually had to have his arm amputated just below his elbow.
When he found out about the computer training for those with disabilities, he didn't think he could study typing with just one hand. But the staff encouraged and convinced him to try. Now he is learning computer skills and will one day be able to get a well-paying job!
Accidents like the one Krishnamurthy had can be overwhelming for a person, and make them lose hope. But because of you, resources exist to help a person overcome those accidents and disabilities and live wonderful lives. Thank you!
As Thanksgiving approaches, I'm grateful for you and how you have helped people with disabilities in India.
Thank you for helping people like Saraswathy. Both of her legs are affected by polio and she uses a wheelchair.
When Saraswathy heard about the free computer training she came into our training center so she could join the class. She studies in the computer class and also stays in the on-site dormitory. Saraswathy's mothers says she has never seen her daughter so happy. Saraswathy is training hard and excited about learning computers.
Your gift is preparing her for a job she never imagined was possible. Thanks for believing in people like Saraswathy. In India, people with disabilities are outcasts and are often stigamatized. No one ever gives them a chance. But your generosity shows how compassionate and caring you are for helping people like Saraswathy.
In India, those with disabilities are unfairly treated. They are shunned and have little means of finding work and pay. But because of your generosity, people are being empowered every day!
Marikannan is the only son in his poor farming family. His father had large debts, and committed suicide when Marikannan was still in school. Despite all this, he continued to study hard and graduated with an engineering degree and started working to support his mother.
Then, one day, while visiting his friend, Marikannan fell while climbing a tree and injured his spine. He lost sensation and movement of his legs, and fell into a deep depression.
But his friends encouraged him to attend the computer training school. Now, he is learning skills that will allow him to make a living again, and take care of himself and his mother. He is studying hard!
Stories like Marikannan's would not be possible if it weren't for you. Your gifts are showing those with disabilities that they are loved and important. Thank you!
Thank you for helping students with disabiliites receive valuable computer training. Many students with disabilities come from poor families. Because of their disability, they are oppressed and marginalized. The stigma is they can't do anything or pursue a career. No one gives them a chance.
Because of your generous gift, you are helping people like Anna have hope for a brighter future.
Anna completely lost sensation below her hip. She had constant leg pain but the surgery went bad. She was paralyzed and could never walk again. Her parents started to resent her. Caring for a spinal cord injured person was too exhausting for them. Anna struggled with suicidal thoughts and even attempted to take her life three times.
But someone introduced Anna to a place to seek counseling and she also found out about our computer training center. Anna was so happy and excited to take computer classes and build on her skills. She passed her typing and computer exam and looks forward to a successful future in the IT field. Anna's goal is to start her own computer center one day!
Thank you for transforming lives in India and helping people with disabilities!
