Testimony of Veena Veerana Yallapurmath as a tailoring student

3 months back I came for the tailoring classes to Jeevan Jyoti Centre. I learnt to stitch my own dresses and blouses which is very helpful for me to save money. Otherwise, I have to pay money to stitch with other tailors. I also got lot of confidence to stitch the dresses of other people and I have started taking orders for stitching clothes.

I feel happy that I have learnt something that I can earn money for myself. This will help me more after I get married also because after marriage, the husband family people mostly ask if we have learnt tailoring in our village situations.

I am very grateful to the sisters of this institute for permitting me to be a part of this training that has made me self reliant and given me a job for my future.

Testimony of Kaveri Chennapur of Computer student:

I, Kaveri Chennapur, feel happy to express my gratitude to the Sisters for making a lot of efforts in the education of the poor children and the youth. It is the feeling also of my friends who are coming with me for the Computer classes at Jeevan Jyoti Computer Centre, Kakkeri.

Beside the knowledge of Computers, we are also guided to move forward in life with hope and interest towards a better future. Our family background is such that it is very difficult for our parents to send us for such training. It is a great need in our village situation to have Computer Education. And I am very grateful to our sisters for giving us this opportunity.

We will always remember you all with gratitude for all the good things you do for us in our village. Thank you sisters.
