Amina is a physically disabled candidate who came from an over protected environment. She was not sent out of the house alone for any purpose. She was included in our manual training and even to the training her aunty used to come along with her and wait till the training was over and taken back home. Amina was very shy by her nature and afraid to talk to strangers. Even during the training she used to cry in group sessions.
During the training there was a change in her and she become open and started to participate in group activities and also to mingle with other participants. When she was sent to a company for work shadowing she liked the job and desired to join there. Now Amina goes to work alone, changing 4 buses a day and is able to earn and support her family.
