This is about one of our students named Nishit Shah. He came to Office procedures with low confidence and poor self-esteem. He was nervous, emotionally disturbed and unsure of himself. We designed a special curriculum keeping in mind his abilities, disabilities and emotional problems. After one year of training, his confidence level improved, therefore we decided to start his internship training programme at Big Bazar, Lower Parel. Training boosted his confidence, as he got an opportunity to interact with different people and felt secure & confident. In spite of him being an Aspergers on the ASD Spectrum, we encouraged and supported him to appear for NOS X and XII examination, which he passed with good grades. After the internship training programme, we trained Nishit for permanent placement at 'Convonix', where he started with a salary of Rs. 1700 and at present he is earning Rs. 20000 per month. Today, Nishit is a great support to his family, both emotionally and financially. Bravo Nishit, we are truly proud of you!
