Success story of Manu

We are very happy to share this success story.   Manu of Vivek group who successfully underwent training at CIPET, Mysore was selected in the campus interview.  He will be joining an Extruder company at Bengaluru shortly.   Total emoluments include  `11,000/-  + Free food and accommodation.  After 3 months he will be eligible for PF and ESI benefits.    Here is Manu’’s  brief profile:

Manu belongs to an economically backward, rural family.  His parents are illiterates.  He belongs to a farming community. (ST)  Due to inherent disinterest in studies, lack of proper guidance and due to rote methods followed in the mainstream schools,  he dropped out of the Government school after completing 1st standard and started helping his parents.   In 2007, at an age of 13 years he joined Kaliyuva Mane – an alternative school for opportunity deprived children, to find his future.  There was no hope of schooling for him elsewhere.  Only thing he knew was to write his name in Kannada.  He has a simple name too!  In 2012, he passed 10th standard examination with flying colours. 

He joined laboratory technician’s course.   Though he was good at work practically and  the  hospital team appreciated his dedication and work,  he found it too difficult to complete two theory papers.   He joined Central  Institute of Plastic Technology and underwent training.  Now at an age of 21,  he is a self-reliant citizen of India.  This is the aim and dream of Kaliyuva Mane – to transform rural opportunity deprived children into self-reliant citizen of India.  

Manu is a soft spoken person with steely determination.  His hobbies include marathon running and playing cricket.  He has learnt cooking.  He takes care of cows too!   With his amicable personality, we are confident that he will do well in any activity.  We wish him a bright future!
