Shivani is 18 years old. She is class 12th pass. She is staying with her mother and younger brother who is in Class 8. Her father doesn’t stay with them. Her mother works in a local school with an income of only Rs 3000/- a month. Her mother is not able to support her higher education so she approached the Metlife sponsored Setu Skill Centre at Village Sadarpur to do the IT course which she joined in June 2016 with the motive of helping her mother in running the family as well as to continue her higher studies.

Asha belongs to a very poor family, she always struggled in her life for improvement and betterment. Asha’s father is working in a private company as a clerk and her total family’s annual income was Rs. 80000/-per annum which is insufficient to fulfil the basic need of a family of 5. She wants to continue her education after 12th as well, but her family was not able to support her education due to financial conditions. She endeavoured to do a job and earn for her higher education as well as for improvement of her family’s condition however, it was impossible for her to find a good job without any technical knowledge and it was even harder to crack any interview without basic knowledge of English. So, she was not able to find a job after completing 12th. Then, she came to know about the STeP Program launched at Setu and its benefits for the under- served youths through our mobilisation. So she joined SteP course to fulfil her basic requirements of skills which is important for finding a good job. After successful completion of this course she grabbed a job of Computer Operator cum Billing Executive at JBM Electronics with a salary of Rs. 5500/month. Asha is very happy with her job as she becomes responsible after this job. Now she is able to help her father and support her own education as well as her siblings education. She and her family would like to thanks Setu for supporting her.
