Awaiting for his S.S.L.C Marks Card, Kumar came to Alamba with reference from an organization. As per his acknowledged information he was 18, so we impacted him for the Training.
His disability: He was suffering from impairment in leg; because of this we introduced walker to him. We at Alamba counseled and made him use crutches. It was very tough for him, but Alamba gave its immense efforts in boosting his confidence levels. We promised him that if he would use crutches successfully we would show an appropriate job for him. Parallel to this Kumar was in PANKH Training program, by mid of training he received his SSLC marks sheet. We figured out his age as 17years according to his Marks sheet and eligibility criteria says that he should complete 18. Unfortunately, he was out from training program, we asked him to come after 10 months.
Later he joined 5th batch of PANKH Training, he completed training with due determination, made him strong to achieve job. PANKH arranged interview at Sangeetha Mobiles,he cracked it and was designated as casher for a pay of Rs.9,500/-.
