Devi is a 23 year old, physically impaired B.Com graduate from Periya Obulapuram Village, Gummidipoondi Taluk.
Devi sadly lost her father whilst she was still in education and her mother kept working whilst looking after Devi and her brother. Devi’s brother earned his Diploma and is currently in employment with Toll Plaza.
Devi was keen to secure a job of her own but because of her disability, finding work in her home town was difficult. She attended a Need Assessment camp local to her and it was there that she heard about the Vocational Training Programme conducted by HELP Trust.
Devi immediately enrolled onto the IT essential skills (ITES) and Retail course and further developed her, already competent, computer skills.
A bright, enthusiastic and active individual were already in her favour when applying and successfully securing her first role as an accountant with Shell.
Devi is a valued member of the team and contributes not only to the success of the company but also to supporting her family.
She has new found independence and growing in self esteem.
