“My Dream Came True”
Life Before Training
I grew up in a poor family of six. I managed to pass only grade 8. Having neither completed education nor acquired any skill, I was depressed. I dreamt to access some technical study but my parents did not have the finances to support my wish. To minimize my depression I migrated to India as a labourer. But that did neither give me any satisfaction nor was financial attractive. Thus I returned back to Nepal and kept searching for the training and employment opportunities. When I came to know about free-of-cost training provided by the Employment Fund I applied for the training as furniture maker and got selected.
Because of my new skills, instead of migrating, I decided to stay in Nepal.
My Gainful Employment After Training
After completion of the training I decided to set up my own furniture workshop in Pokhara with the support and under the inspiration of my training provider, the Panchakanya Training Institute. Right now I earn around 10,000 Rupees per month and am even able to save some money. My dream came true and I am glad that I can work in my own country. I believe, skills are the key for success. I recommend other unemployed youth to go for skill training too because it makes you confident and disperses many of your worries.
