Miss Ataina, a 19-year old belongs to a family of five members staying in Bhalswa Dairy, Resettlement Colony, Delhi, 110042 with her father, mother, and 3 siblings.
Her father lost his job in Covid and her mother works as a supporting staff in Jag Jeevan Hospital. All her siblings are currently studying. Before coming in contact with ISTC, her family was facing a lot of financial hardships as her mother was the sole earning member in the family.
Being the eldest child, Ataina realized the difficult circumstances her family was going through. She couldn’t continue her education after Class 12 because of these financial constraints.
She came to know about our ISTC through a community mobilization drive and decided to pursue an Assistant Nursing Midwifery Certificate course. This was a turning point in her life. After the completion of the course, she was able to land a job at Aisha Nursing Hospital, New Delhi as a Nursing staff. She now contributes to her family income.
She owes her success to the Human Welfare Foundation and ISTC center. She also appreciates the fact that the trainers at ISTC were always available to resolve the problems, she faced during the course. This training has turned around her life completely and she is now looking forward to pursuing her dream of completing her education.
ISTC and Human Welfare Foundation wishes Aataina all the best for her future and further hope to make a difference in the lives of many such people.
Human Welfare Foundation has a separate department for economic empowerment which provides individuals and communities with training in small-scale skills along with interest-free business loans, which offer them dignified and sustainable waysof livelihood.
Innovation and Skill Training Centre (ISTC) is a mission of the economic empowerment department through which the empowerment of the underprivileged is carried out through life skills training to make them valuable citizens of this country, thus contributing to the overall development of this nation.
ISTC training aims at the empowerment of the underprivileged, the rural/urban communities, and disadvantaged women through appropriate employable skills training. ISTC’s goal is to impart skills, knowledge, and a positive attitude.
India, the second-most populous country in the world is bestowed with a large working population. India has the advantage of reaping this demographic dividend. However, high drop-out rates from school coupled with poor vocational skills hinder reaping this dividend. There exists a demand-supply gap in skill sets, both cognitive and practical. ISTC is crucial in making the underprivileged empowered through life skills training to make them valuable citizens of the country.
Mrs. Reshma, a single mother from West Bengal who belongs to a very poor family had to struggle hard, both emotionally and financially. But as someone who doesn’t give up easily, the young girl did not lament the challenges, but rather made them stepping stones.
Being a single mother means balancing parenting, working and household responsibilities.
Penury led Reshma to drop-out from school after her tenth and look for a job. In order to support her family, improve her financial status and standard of living, she came to Delhi and joined the one-year Assistant Nursing Midwifery Certificate course at ISTC.
Her training at the ISTC for the ANM course helped her not only understand the nuances of the skill but also develop her personality. She is grateful to the trainers at Human Welfare Foundation (HWF) for building that confidence and passion in her.
After successful completion of the course, she is now serving as a Nursing Staff in Kauvery Hospital, Hosur, Tamil Nadu with a salary of 30,000 per month.
Mrs. Reshma is a living example of an individual who believes in herself, makes the most of each situation, and remains focused on her goals in life, letting nothing deter her from her path.
