Arasu’s story — India
Arasu is a 25-year-old from India. He has a physical disability as a result of polio when he was a child. He has a BA in English, but despite this struggled to find work after university due to a lack of confidence and basic job skills.
Arasu registered with our Livelihoods Resource Centre in Chennai, Tamil Nadu, after finding out about us from a friend. He received job skills training and careers guidance. We supported him to find a job with a company specialising in producing digital and Braille versions of books (WORTH Digitalization). He is now earning a good salary and is proud to be the main contributor to his family’s income.
