Need your Fridge Servicing?

Greetings to you all!

I want to tell you the story of a boy called Devnandan. Devnandan has lived on the station for as long as he can remember, physically challenged with the loss of an arm in childhood in a freak accident with a thresher mill, he sweeped trains and begged to survive from day to day with little future ahead of him.

He began to attend Rescue Junction, took a keen interest in the educational classes and began to gain self respect.

An opportunity came to him some months ago to study air conditioner and fridge repairing as a vocational training course ,and despite his lack of formal education he successfully passed the course and took a loan from the Trust under our LIFE (Lindum Individual Fund for Enterprise) programme to start his own business. " Himalaya Service Centre".

He has now come from a beggar to businessman, a whole new life in front of him.

As Devnandan himself comments, " I never though that I would have a chance like this"

As ever thanks for all your support, and may with your help turnaround more young lives like Devnandan.
