Both of Jugnu’s parents were killed in a car accident, orphaning her and her two younger brothers when she was just six years old. With no relatives to care for them, they grew up in orphanages and at 19 years old, Juganu came to our Snehadhar project.
As her name suggests, Juganu was used to fighting her own battles but her life took a new turn once she joined us. A calm and stable physical young woman, her face always reflected her hopes for a bright future. With a 12th pass and active in academic study and cultural activities, we secured her admission in further education. She balanced this with various other activities, including college competitions, vocational training in computing, incense stick making, beauty parlor and stitching.
Having gained a wealth of skills she volunteered for our Snehalaya projects, earning extra money by stitching clothes and taking orders for Mehndi during cultural functions. But she didn't stop there. She started a job as a hospital receptionist. With our guidance, support and motivation she was very successful. After graduation, she continued volunteering for our project where, seeing her skillset and honesty she was recruited as a helpline attendant.
Now our sparkle girl has completed four months with our helpline creating a new world she can stand on her own feet with great self-image, confidence and realistic hopes for her future as she has recently enrolled in college to do a masters in psychology.
