Thank you for making a difference in the life of Elaya, a man with dwarfism who was relegated to the lower rungs of society in India.
People with disabilities, particularly in India, face a host of challenges that often result in them being pushed to the margins. They struggle to access even the most basic services, let alone education and employment opportunities.
Through your kindness and generous support, Elaya received a computer education and landed a great computer job that not only helped him break free from poverty but also gave him a renewed sense of self-worth.
But your gifts goes way beyond computer training. You invest in their entire wellness. When Elaya started experiencing pain in his leg doctors found one leg was shorter than the other and he needed special footwear. By your generosity we were able to help Elaya get the equipment he needs to walk pain free. Your gifts helped Elaya to live a more fulfilling life!
Thank you for believing in people that others cast aside as unimportant – you are changing lives of people with disabilities in India!
From Polio to Promise - Jansi's Life Was Transformed
By John Sparks | President
Your support truly made a life-changing impact on Jansi. As a young girl Jansi had polio and it left her with difficulty walking. With polio affecting her mobility, Jansi hadn't been given many opportunities to excel in her life. Thanks to your generous donation, she was able to enroll in our one-year computer diploma course, which proved to be the stepping stone to her promising career.
Your generosity funded the courses that provided her with the essential skills needed to land a job with the Government - a rare opportunity. She started off as an office worker, but her computer skills and hard work propelled her up the ranks to a clerical staff position. This is a remarkable achievement, as less than 1 in a thousand people secure a Government job. Thank you for helping us make Jansi's dreams come true and proving that disabilities should never hold anyone back in poverty.
Your support has created an environment where students can flourish, grow, and learn valuable skills that will help them excel. It is truly inspiring to see the transformative effect that access to a computer education can have on their lives.
With every lesson they take and every computer skill they master, students like Jansi are discovering their incredible value and worth. You are a part of this journey, and we cannot thank you enough for your unwavering support of our program. Together, we can continue to uplift and empower marginalized people in India.
Thanks to your generosity, a girl with a motor disability was able to get a job to support her family! Meera suffers from muscle paralysis and weakness on one side of her body that severely limits her employment options. Through your donation, she was given a chance to study computers.
Meera and her mother struggled to make ends meet and relied on government subsidized food canteens for their provision. Because of her condition, lack of education, and the strain covid left on job opportunities in India, Meera was unable to find employment.
Not only did your donation provide covid relief for Meera but it also gave her computer skills and education! Meera went to the local photo copy store to make copies of her resume and was offered a job on the spot! The offer was immediately accepted by Meera, who is very grateful for the opportunity.
Thank you for giving the gift of computer education to people with disabilities in India. It affords them the education, training and connections they need to make their way in the world. Without your generosity people like Meera wouldn’t have a chance to provide for their families, but you helped make a way. Now Meera works a respectable job and makes money for her survival. Thank you!
