Sandeep was residing in Nilwande village which is far from town. His financial condition was very poor. His father is a mason and mother does labour work, but their income is mostly dependent on the availability of work on that particular day. His elder brother studied till 11th standard and now he is also doing farm work. Sandeep has studied till 10th standard, but he failed in one subject. After that he did not go to school for the past two years and was instead helping parents with farming.
Sandeep heard about NISD through the project social workers. He decided to join the Electrical Repair & Maintenance of Household Appliances course. He attended the course regularly. He completed the course successfully. He has now started his own self-employment business. He recently got a contract to work in one of the houses in the village. Not only has this turned his life around and given him faith and confidence in himself, but he is able to also provide much-needed financial support to his family.
