Fight For a Bright Future 

by DRF in Story of the Month | July 11, 2017

Amudavalli is the quintessential married woman from Bangalore who lives with her husband and in-laws. What makes her a superwoman, according to us, is her spirit to provide a better future for her two children despite her financial condition. She and her husband, who works as an electrician, are doing their best to ensure that the household runs smoothly.

Amudavalli’s day started at 4 in the morning. She quickly finished her household chores and by 8 a.m. she is off to drop her kids to school. She then travels two kilometers to start her work as a caretaker and domestic help for an elderly couple. The salary was a pittance but it paid for her kids’ transport to school.

It is in this busy drill that she came across GROW’s pamphlet that promised her “Better Skills. Better Jobs”. She visited the Utterahalli centre and after talking to the staff at the center her hopes of getting a better job with the right training was strengthened.

The classes that focused on aptitude and communication skills were her favourite and she found Accounting very interesting. Also, the training in communication skills helped her to communicate with confidence. She reminisces, “My parents never encouraged me to study or work, but I enrolled in GROW Program because I wanted to learn skills which would help me to get a good job. I want my children to study in a good school and also give them all the happiness they deserve.”
Amudavalli is close to completing her training and is looking forward to ace her interviews with her newly acquired skills. We wish her the very best and are confident that she will crack the interview of her dream job!.
