    INSPIRING STORIES (They Make Us Proud):

    Bhupinder Kaur belongs to Shaheedgarh, working in a salon fascinated her and when she approached one to learn the skill of being a beautician, she was asked for a hefty amount which she could not afford. She learnt about the free beauty course at MBCT in which she enrolled herself for and completed it with utmost sincerity and passion. Today Bhupinder is independent, self-employed entrepreneur. “I started my work from home using the Beauty Kit that was given to me after completion of the course. I am happy that I’m earning Rs.8,000 every month.”

    Arshpreet Kaur, Village Sonda

    Arshpreet Kaur, Village Sonda,As soon as I got to know about the new cutting & stitching course, I visited MBCT and got myself enrolled in it. I was so keen to peruse this course but unfortunately, the distance of my village to the center location was a lot making high bus fares for my everyday travel. My family was not in a situation to afford this expenditure. Luckily, MBCT supported me through this difficulty and thereafter I continued my studies. Soon after completion of my course, I started taking order work in my village. With the help of the stitching machine we got in this course, I hired one more women artisan/ helper. I have now trained her well in my work. With this I am now able to work efficientl and thereby I see a substantial increase in my income. Thanks a lot to MBCT for providing such opportunity to me and making me successful in my life. Besides, my income would soften the burden of my family. I can support the education of my son and medication of my husband,” she says with a glint in her eyes.”With all the good things happening to her, it is equally important to note that Arshpreet's new earnings have allowed her to become independent, as she no longer has to rely on others for her sustenance.
