Finding a job can be challenging for anyone, but for those with disabilites in India, it can be almost impossible. Social stigmas can create obstacles for them that can result in emotional turmoil along with their physical problems.

This was the case wit Aruna. Because of a bout with polio, Aruna uses crutches and calipers. She wanted computer training to increase her chances of getting a job, but was very sad when she entered the hostel and had to leave the comfort of her own home.

However, as she began to take classes, she excelled! She was in the top of her class and received second place in a local typing competition. Along with that, she made good use of physiotherapy sessions at the hostel where her walking improved as well.

Upon graduation from the program, this is what Aruna had to say:

"This program gave me two things: a good education and confidence. Thank you for giving these to me!"

Education and care makes a huge difference in the lives of those with disabilities in India. Your gifts are providing life-changing opportunities - thank you!
