Success Stories

Ajay Kumar

My name is Ajay Kumar and I am 35 years old. I am orthopedically handicapped with my both legs affected with polio. I am using Tricycle for moving around and outside. I live in Palam at Dwarka, New Delhi. Financially my family is very weak. I was always worried for my condition. I was always tensed about my future that how would I mange myself in future. I searched for various institutes from where I can do technical course. I was looking for a technical field job that should match my comfort zone.

One day I met Rehabilitation worker of ASRA. She told me about ASRA and its facilities. She also told me one of the Mobile Repairing Course run by ASRA. I enrolled myself in the same course at ASRA Pappankalan Centre in April 2017 running in my slum. I have learned and successfully completed my course in September 2017. I am thankful to ASRA that it is providing such a good and professional course in low contribution.

During my training period, I also worked as a substitute of Pappankalan Mobile Repairing Centre during the absence of my teacher. Finally, I decided to open a small mobile repairing shop at my home. With Micro Credit program of Seed Loan run by ASRA, I got Seed Loan of Rs.5000/- and then decided setup a small Mobile Repairing Shop at my home.

One day I came to know about vacancy for Mobile Repairing Teacher at Pappan Kalan community. I applied for the Job and got selected as a Mobile Repairing Teacher in the month of October 2018. Now in the morning I teach students at ASRA Mobile Repairing Centre and in the evening I manage my shop which I run my home.

ASRA helped me a lot in availing all government facilities also like- Disability Certificate, Railway concession certificate, SDM card, disability pension, motorized tricycle etc.

I am heartily thankful to ASRA and AFS which changed my life.”
