Digital literacy for underserved youth in Delhi

Hello everyone,

Greetings of the day!!!

My name is Savita, In the year 2016, I was working as a teacher in one of the private institutions where my package was Rs. 60000 per annum. Since I was not equipped with the necessary soft and employability skills, I was finding it difficult to secure a decent job with a good stipend. Due to financial constraints back at my home, I was hesitant to even ask for financial support from my family members to pursue some technical courses to get better job opportunities. My life was turned upside down when I came to know about Udayan Care through one of my school friends, whereas I visited Vinod Nagar IT Centre, there I met with the centre coordinator who told me about Graphic & Print Design course, that time I had no idea about this course but since my school, I always enjoyed doing some creativity on paper, I qualified the entrance exam and started pursuing Graphic & Print Design course.

After completion of my course, I got an internship opportunity in ADR Publisher & Distributor Pvt Ltd (Ghaziabad) with help of Udayan Care placement cell, this opportunity became a boon for me, today I am managing their work of Journal Binding for final print independently, at the designation of a Sr. Designer with Rs.22000 per month. My journey with Udayan Care is a never-ending process, in 2018 I nominated myself to be part of the Udayan Care Alumni Network and took responsibility for holding the hands of my peers who also come from the underserved community with dreams to learn a specific skills training course for their better future. In these 4 years, ADR Publisher has been doing really good and expanded their projects, whenever manpower requirement comes from my employer I always give priority to call candidates from Udayan Care IT Centre. Pradeep, Sachin & Megha (Udayan Care Alumni) have also joined the ADRs designing team as graphic designers. Our company’s chairperson Shalini always says “ADR has recruited staff members from Udayan Care IT Centre and they become Kohinoor (precious diamond) for our company, they worked really hard and play a vital role in our success. I am always thankful to all the candidates who are working with us and Udayan Care for their unconditional support.”

Recently I visited Udayan Care’s social media platform there I came across a post that was uploaded on the occasion of International Women’s Day, the day was celebrated in Udayan Care’s Kurukshetra & Noida IT Centre. In our Kurukshetra IT centre which is completely dedicated to girls training in IT courses, 25 girl students were a part of self-defence training session to make themselves capable to protect themselves from eve-teasing, bullying etc. The training was organized by a black belt champion Pradhuman, during a long hour session, our girls practised middle basic, basic kicks, lower punch & gripping etc. In the supervision of Pradhuman. Whereas our Noida centre followed the Women’s Day 2021 theme choose to challenge, boys and girls took pledge along with our English Communication faculty Hansika, they all pledged that “We strongly believe that respect should be for the person, not the gender. Men, Women, & LGBT all are equal. Come and join us to choose the challenge to create believe in community we all were equal and will always be equal” same day few of our students performed an act which was showcased how women are participating in nations growth. I scrolled down and found another post which was conducted for the students who are pursuing an E-Accounting course from Udayan Care’s IT Centre, the session was dedicated to give an in-depth brief about Goods & Service Tax (GST) which is a major component of Udayan Care’s E-Accounting training curriculum. The session was taken by, Ashish an Assistant Professor at Gokhale Institute of Politics and Economics. He has completed his PhD in Economics from the same Institute. He teaches courses on Finance, Economics with a deep interest in the intersectionality of economics, culture, and politics. 66 students and 7 trainers became part of this interactive training session. Ashish started the session with an introduction for about 10 minutes’ briefing about the GST followed by the same he asked questions from the students to give them clarity against their queries. This two-way interaction helped the students with a better understanding of the topic. In all, it was a good session that gave clarity on the topic taken.
