18-year-old Tanveer Pathan

There are 5 of us in my family. My mother is a maidservant, and my father is a manual labourer. My older sister is married and my brother works as a helper at the airport.

I stopped attending school when I was younger, and spent my days at home, where I would do nothing. One day I heard about a stitching course that was being offered and decided to join. I finished that course, but unfortunately I didn’t learn very much. I didn’t feel satisfied with the classes. I was looking for something better.

Then one day, I heard about the stitching classes run by Karuna Prabha’s project team. I also heard very positive things about the quality of the teaching, so I decided to enroll.  It has really helped me to continue to pursue this interest of mine. I am now able to stitch many different types of blouse. I’m even earning a little money from it!

I’m so happy to learn these skills, and very thankful to the teacher and the Foundation for giving me this opportunity.

Thank you so much.
