Fahim the hard worker leading the change
Fahim at Topsia
FAHIM, 21, lives beside the Topsia sewage (the city dirty water flows beside the settlement). He lost his mother 4 years ago in a road accident, and since then life has been very difficult for him. But he never lost hope and continued the education. Tiljala SHED stood beside him through these difficult times and ensured he did not drop out from school. He also attended our remedial classes by specialised teachers which benefitted him immensely.
He did not disappoint our team and completed his schooling despite many challenges making him the first member in his family to complete High School.
Now, he is in the second year of Undergrads, pursuing Bachelor of Arts. He loves English as a subject.
A new cycle was given to him, and he started logistics work but that did not last long due to some problems with the company. The cycle helps him to reach his college and save his bus fare. Besides college, he is engaged in some event management company and earns some amount for his family. The cycle helps him a lot to accomplish his part time work.
He will be undergoing an electrician training soon and will start his work in the local area and has plans to go out of India and work as a renowned electrician.
Fahim’s hard work will take him to the path of success and he will soon be a successful electrician.
This journey was not possible without your support. Fahim, would have been working in a factory, if the support was not provided on time. The death of his mother was a turning point in his life and he decided to move on and make his mother proud of him.
Fahim has dream in his eyes to acquire electrical work skills and go overseas to work and earn for his family. Regular counselling and a holistic education helped him overcome his challenges and he is now a confident young boy who wants to achieve something which no one in his family has achieved.
