Disability to Contributing Productive Worker.
Having lost both her parents, Tulu lives with her elder sister's family. Her weak eyesight and hearing and speech impairment, affected her ability to earn money which made her feel like a burden on her sister.
Atma Nirbhar - Ek Challenge (which translates to Self Reliance - a Challenge), is an economic rehabilitation project for the disabled that helps them become independent. As part of this project, Tulu got the chance to earn her bread and become more independent.
Tulu, who was earlier languishing from guilt at being unproductive, is now extremely happy with her independence. Her work here, which involves packaging tea and cleaning the centre not only gives her economic independence, but an enhanced sense of confidence and self-worth.
