Arati Das (Rajgangpur, Odisha)
Arati : determined to explore & capitalise every opportunity
Arati Das from Barupada, Rajgangpur lives with her parents and one elder brother. Their monthly family income of Rs. 4,000 comes from an Idly stall managed by her father. Due to her father's low income, Arati could not continue her study beyond class 10th so she decided to find some employment option to support her family. While she was exploring employment opportunities she met one of the DIKSHa alumni and came to know about the DIKSHa centre at Rajgangpur. She visited the centre and underwent counselling about the various trainings offered and job avenues after the training.
She got interested in the Sewing trade and joined the next batch as a trainee in Sewing machine operator trade in 2018. Post completion of the training programme, she got immediately placed in Shahi Exports Private Limited, Bengaluru at a salary of Rs. 12,000 per month including boarding and lodging.
She is a hardworking employee, doing well at her job. With her current earning of Rs. 13,000 per month, she is supporting her father financially and is spending her life independently and happily. Arati wishes to complete her education through distance learning, so that she can simultaneously continue her education and job.
She is gratified and is active part of DIKSHa alumni motivating others to join DIKSHa and be self-reliant.
