Failure is just a stepping stone, isn’t it?
Arbiya Banu,17, is part of our Computer Training Programme in Bangalore. Before joining our course, Arbiya struggled with her studies and failed in 10th grade. Determined to do better, she took up our training course to learn computer skills while she waited to take up the exam again. Arbiya was very proactive and had a good zeal for learning. She always set an example of finishing work and assignments on time.
In partnership with Phapa Technologies and Indus Action, we initiated an employment-training programme to help in identifying communities for Covid Releif Drive. Arbiya volunteered first to be a part of the programme. She completed all the training modules, both online and offline. She did not only fair well in her training but helped in reaching out to hundreds of beneficiaries across the city for the drive.
Arbiya’s responsibilities were to call, verify, consolidate and update the information of the beneficiaries. She reached out to unorganised workers and assisted them in filling their applications online for the government relief. She earned stipend for her services too! While working out of her comfort zone and exploring new opportunities, Arbiya has also successfully passed out of 10th grade. Now, she is on to her next adventure of beginning college education and is also looking to continue work with us in our other initiatives.
Arbiya says, “I am thankful to be a part of Oasis. Through their programmes, I was able to build my self-esteem and believe in my ability to overcome the challenges in life. I want to create a successful career for myself and support my family.”
