Radha Giri, Chaayos
Radha Giri lives in a family of 8 at Mehrauli in Delhi. She has an elder brother and sister and three younger sisters. Her family is from Bihar and they had migrated to Delhi in search of a better life. Their financial conditions in Bihar were poor and they had come to Delhi to earn a better living.
Upon coming to Delhi, Radha tried to get a job at various places but was not successful in cracking any interview. She was 20 years old when she came to Empower Pragati’s ‘Saksham’ centre to enquire about the training. She had heard about the centre and wanted to know more about skill development. Upon learning that completing this course would also help her in getting a job, Radha enrolled into the programme.
She completed the training programme successfully and managed to get a job in the Hospitality sector at Chaayos. She joined as a team member and began earning a salary of Rs. 10,000. She is now bearing all her household expenses which include house rent and food. She is extremely satisfied with her job.
