Your gift is helping young people with disabilities gain hope and self-confidence through computer training. In the past few months, 54 people have been served through this project. Your gift enables them to go to school and receive a quality education in computers.
Many of the students come from poor families and because of their disabilitiy, they are oppressed and marginalized. The stigma is they can't do anything or pursue a career.
However, your gift makes it possible for them to succeed. Computer training gives people with disabilities the necessary skills to apply for quality jobs in the workforce. After course completion, the students take a Government Exam and graduate with a "Certificate in Computer Application." This is such a valuable certificate when looking for jobs in India.
Because of you, students like Karthikeyan are thriving.
Karthikeyan was born with dwarfism and a deformed spine. He had a difficult childhood because of his disability and poverty. In spite of the difficulties, he was able to finish school. Karthikeyan decided to join our computer training program to study typing and computers. When he first started he failed the typing exam three times. He was ready to give up but the our staff encouraged him to keep practicing and try again.
On his fourth exam, he passed! He said, “I give a million thanks for helping me to pass this typing exam and I hope to pass the COA (Computer on Office Automation) government exam too and get a good government job.”
Thank you for changing lives and helping people like Karthikeyan. You brought a smile to his face with your gift.
