Shalini's journey from an closet artist to becoming a design executive
Shalini lives with her parents and four siblings in Badarpur, South Delhi. Her father works as a painter and mother is a homemaker. With five children to provide for, her father barely managed to make ends meet.
Badarpur is close to the Haryana border. It is a poor urbanized locality and girls in the community face a lot of constraints.
Shalini was a talented artist. Looking at her potential, Shalini's sister managed to convince her parent to enroll Shalini in the Graphic and Print Design Course. This course was being conducted at the Badarpur's Udhayan Care IT center.
Shalini cleared her screening process and joined the course. The course nurtured her talent and gave her the skill required to get better. She worked very hard at her subjects even with lack of resources at home.
Shalini got selected to do an internship in DDB Mudra Group. During the course of this internship she worked closely with their in house creative team. Her seniors were appreciative of her typography work.
This experience added wings to her career. She completed her course with flying colors.
Shalini is at present working with Brightwaay, South Delhi as a Designing Executive. She is working on improving her professional skills in the field of designing. She is now a confident young and independent girl. She also contributes financially to her family.

Story from the field
Roshan, an intelligent boy, coming from a low socio-economic background got the opportunity to enhance his marketable skills by joining Udayan Care Computer Learning Center. Recently, he completed his 3 months of intense training in Tally ERP, as well as received mentoring in developing his soft skills, English speaking skills, personality development at the Center. While training, he came across as an energetic, curious and enthusiastic 19-year-old boy to his faculty members and his peers. Time to time he expressed his desire to help his family with finances.
Earlier he had enrolled himself in a computer learning centre near his house, however, he felt they were not able to provide him with the required knowledge that could help him get employment. After the recommendation of his friend, he decided to join Udayan Care Center which provides professional courses in highly subsidized rates
By the end of his course he received an offer from a reputed company as an MIS Executive with Rs.10,000/- as salary. Today, Roshan is living his dream and feels proud that he is able to contribute financially and support his family with dignity. Coming from a disadvantaged background, he feels lucky to have received a platform to groom himself and receive the guidance to be successful in his life.
