Impact:

Ever thought a painter could own two computer institutes and teach 200-300 students, at a young age of 22?
Well, that's the story of young Rizwan Khan. The youngest child in his family, from a poor family. Rizwan loves to paint and design. After finishing schooling, he got a job of painting roadside political hoardings. Soon, the hoardings were being designed using computer graphics, and were no longer done manually. Realizing the need of the hour he decided to study further.
He knew there was no future without some kind of education. He learnt basic computers on his own, by buying books and studying them at home. On learning about curses offered by Yuva Parivartan he joined the DTP course at Bandra.
Rizwan says, 'My life has changed completely after coming to Kherwadi, economically, financially, and for me as a person and how I am today. Today, I own two computer institutes, one in partnership and one of my own. Who would have thought I would be able to do that!'
