Naresh is a resident of Naranpura, Ahmedabad, whose father is the sole earner in the family. He always wanted to do something to support his father. But, he was quite discouraged by many people who told him that without higher education from a good institute he would never be able to find a decent job and earn a living. As a result, he was confused as to what to do after completing schooling because his family couldn’t afford to pay for higher education. Thankfully this dilemma was resolved when he came across Saksham, ASDC’s skill development programme. After gathering information about the many courses offered by ASDC, he chose the General Duty Assistant course. He hoped to get a good placement and salary after completing the course.
At first, Naresh was unsure whether he would be able to understand all the technical concepts related to nursing and the medical field in general. But, the quality of teaching at the course enabled him to understand the topics and get his doubts cleared. He also realised that good patient care is a vital service provided by a hospital. During the course, he attained sound knowledge about the job of a general duty assistant and became determined to land a job in a good hospital. By the end of the course, it became exceedingly clear to him that he was meant to do this job where he could serve the society.
After completing the course, he immediately got a placement in the pharmaceutical unit of the Apollo Hospital Enterprise Limited. He was delighted at being offered a starting salary equivalent to an MBBS. We, at ASDC, feel that Naresh’s good fortune is a result of his sincerity and determination. We are dedicated to training and developing the potential of such talented individuals. Naresh’s family is most grateful to ASDC for changing his life. Naresh himself says, “Now, I can help my father in supporting the family financially. Thanks to Saksham, I can ease the burden on my father and together, we can work to bring the family out of a financial crisis.”
