After dropping out of school in 2010, Vikas tried looking for a job but was unsuccessful in finding one.

Through one of our community partnerships, Vikas came to Yuva Parivartan. He realized that, having a skill is important in  acquiring a fixed paying job. Hence, he joined the AC repairing and the English Speaking course. Finally, Vikas succeeded in getting a job as an AC maintenance in charge with a fix pay in a local hospital that assured him a future.

With the inflation rates touching the sky, Rs. 6000 wasn’t enough to support his parents and younger brother.

He started looking for new sources of income and he stumbled upon the YP “Entrepreneurship Development”  program.  After learning about the basics of entrepreneurship, he started taking independent service contracts with a help of a friend.

His contractual business earns him Rs 5000 to Rs 8000 every month.

To  everyone’s surprise, Vikas found the courage to start studying again. He has just appeared for his Xth Standard exam and plans to learn advanced AC repairing in the future.

The Yuva Parivartan Team is very proud of Vikas and wishes him all the luck for this future ventures.
