The Future of Another Help A Child Student Secured!

We’re very pleased to be able to share some good news with you all about some of our students!

Shivanand Darur who is in his final year of Bachelor of Engineering has recently received a campus placement from TATA Consultancy Services! Gaining a job offer from such a prestigious company is wonderful news for Shivanand and his family as now his future is secure after he finishes his education.

Shivanand is from a single parent family, his father abandoned them some years ago and he, his mother and brothers stay with his maternal grandfather. His grandfather has only one acre of land to farm and the family has often struggled to make ends meet. Shivanand has been sponsored since the second year of his Bachelor of Engineering degree when he first applied for the Help A Child scholarship.

Shivanand will now earn a decent salary, enough to support not only himself but also his family. While he doesn’t know yet which city he will be placed in he plans to help renovate the family’s house and help his brothers complete their education.

We’re very proud of him!

Most of our engineering graduates from last year have now joined their new workplaces. We have had students placed in TATA Consultancy Services, Mahindra Tech, Sandisk and Mphasis from our last batch so there is much to celebrate about!

We wish the rest of this year’s graduates all the best for securing employment and hope to bring you some more news soon!
