Ajith R Gummudipoondi, Tamil Nadu

“I come from a family whose main occupation is agriculture. I stay with my family in a village called Thervazhi near Gummudipoondi. I could not continue my education after class 10th because it was getting difficult for my father to manage the finances of the family alone. I started working part time and was able to fetch some money for the family whenever I got some work. One of my friends informed me about the CII- ABG Kaushalya Skill Training Centre that was offering training in welding for free. I contacted the centre for more details and after consulting my parents decided to join the training programme. After completion of the course, I want to start my own shop for welding and fitting and therefore borrowed some money from my uncle. It took me some time to get customers and retain them. Today, I get orders from the companies in Gummudipoondi, through this I earn around INR 10,000 a month. I would like to thank CII-ABG for giving me this opportunity to get skilled and earn a decent livelihood.”
