Aniket Mokale, Aurangabad

Aniket Mokale, 19 years old, needed a job as his family’s small catering business shut down due to the pandemic. Aniket was working in a small cloth shop for Rs.4000 per month to support his family and continue his education. The Lighthouse helped Aniket find his confidence and improve his communication skills. He soon got a job as a packer and sorter in a pharmaceutical company and is now earning Rs.13000/- per month.

Reshma Kamble, aiming for a career with youth

Reshma Kamble, 30 years old, lost her husband due to COVID-19. She has a 5 year old daughter. The Lighthouse helped her cope with the loss of her husband. She completed the Office Administration course and is now working with us as a Skilling Coordinator earning Rs.1.20 lakhs per year.

So far, we have enabled 16000 youth to take charge of their own lives. We need your support to reach out to many more disadvantaged young people like Rachana, Rani, Aniket and Reshma.

The youth of today are tomorrow’s innovators and leaders. However, youth who are born into poverty and deprivation find it difficult to overcome their circumstances. Unemployment due to a lack of skills and self-belief restricts their chances to change their lives.

A small contribution from you will help provide counselling, skilling and placement to disadvantaged youth.
