I know the project well because my mother did a fashion design course and told me about it. I was interested to do something similar which would allow me to get a job, so I could help the family.
There are 5 of us in the family. My father works as a servant in a bungalow in Koregaon Park. He also does maintenance work there. My mother is a house wife. I have one younger brother and he is in the 9th STD. My grandmother is very old. My father’s income is not enough to fulfill our family needs, and so I decided to find a job to support the family. This was how I came to enroll on a computer course.
Feelings and feedback:
This was my first time, in my life, sitting in front of a computer. In addition to these computer classes, I also learned a number of other skills important in our day to day life like communication skills, awareness on HIV and AIDS, knowledge about our bodies and reproductive systems and so forth.
I am really satisfied with how this course as gone, especially because the teachers were very cooperative and helpful. After finishing the course I got a job at the Videocon call centre. I feel confident enough to do my job well, and I am very happy to the foundation for supporting me.
Prachi’s Mother says:
After joining the computer course there was a tremendous change in Prachi. She learnt how to respect her elders, how to behave with family members; listening to them and trying to understand what they are saying. Before joining the course she did not listen to us. She has changed now. Her father too is very happy with her and her achievements.
