High Hopes

Name:  Sunil Vitthal Ghule

Village:  Pokhari

Course - Electrical & Home Appliances Repair

Education: 9th standard

Age:  21Yrs.

Situation before participating in the project:  Sunil resides in Pokhari village. His father is doing labour work, his mother does house work and his elder brother is in the first year of his degree course. Sunil failed in the 9th standard and he left school.  He used to do jobs like feeding the cows and getting water or go with his father for labour work. 


Sunil failed in 9th std and stopped going to school. Project staff tried convincing him to go to school, but did not succeed.  When NISD staff were giving information about vocational training courses to be started for the youth, his mother was present.  She gave information about the course to Sunil and motivated him.  Sunil was not very convinced,  so he met NISD staff and got detailed information.  Once convinced he decided to complete the course.  He took admission for the Electrical & Home Appliances Repair course and completed this 3 month duration course successfully.


Present Situation: Though Sunil completed the course and is willing to work in a near town, dyu but due to his father’s sickness, he is not able to go out for work.  This has forced Sunil to work in the same village, and work in their field as well as look after their animals. So despite Sunil now being trained to work in better conditions, he is as yet unable to. We have hopes that he will be able to in the future.
