Nalli Surendra (Driver)

“Earlier, every day was a struggle when I worked as a labourer for minimal wages. I lived with a sense of hopelessness and dread. The Skill Bharath Program was the learning experience that changed my life. The Driver’s Training course helped me land a job as a driver in Qatar. I cannot be more grateful to Chord for reaching out to people like me.”

Shaheen, Tailor

“I am 18 yrs old and a resident of the Yellamabanda slum. I come from a very poor financial background and it was extremely difficult for us to make ends meet. GGP was truly a blessing in my life. The training in the Tailoring course helped me learn many different techniques and I can proudly say I am now proficient in the skill of tailoring. Chord recognized my work and I’m now chosen for further training and employment in designing in the Growth Gene Project Social Enterprise. I sincerely thank Chord for this opportunity.”
