“To change her ill-fate, she actively participated in the course and completed it with flying colours.”

Kalai*, aged 23, hails from the beautiful town of Sriperumbudur. Coming from a poor family, she was able to complete only her 12th grade. Her father, a farmer, used to run the family with his meagre income which was supported by what her mother could earn as a daily wage worker. Kalai’s* life took a 360-degree turn when her father fell ill. He was unable to work and that was a big blow to the family. To help turn things around, Kalai* decided to find a job. She came to know about the ITES data entry course organised by Hand in Hand India. To change her ill fate, she actively participated in the course and completed it with flying colours. Now, this determined young lady makes about INR 13,500 at HI LEX. With tears in her eyes and joy in her heart, she thanks the management of Cognizant Foundation and Hand in Hand India for making her dreams come true!
