Motor Rewinding Training enabled Balu to become Awardee

Balu, a resident of Kavathal, a small village, in Sangrampur Block of Buldana district. His life was going through many crisis, his mother was always sick, he could not continue education after SSC, lost his father 6-7 years ago and health wise he too was weak in the family. Due to this, he could not work hard in farming fields along with his brothers to earn a living and hence, he was unemployed.

In 2016, one of the village volunteer referred Balu to attend a workshop of VSP on Motor Rewinding which was supported by Rangoonwala Foundation India Trust. Balu was selected for a 2 months training with 15 other youths of nearby villages. After this training, he started to earn Rs.200-300/- on daily basis by repairing electronic appliances such as Televisions, Fans, Motors etc. after the training.

Recently, he has established his own Tin Shed Shop near Pathurda Phata, which is a central location connecting 7-8 small villages, from which he earns Rs.500/- per day.Balu shares, “Earlier I was worried and depressed about my employment, but now I am earning well. Due to this, now there is a pleasant atmosphere in the family”.

Balu has employed another youth in his shop as a Helper and is now voluntarily training 6 more youths in his shop. This spirit of Balu’s volunteerism was recognized by Ms. Nisreen Ibrahim, CEO of Rangoonwala Foundation India Trust during her Field Monitoring visit in Buldana district. Balu was awarded by RFIT on 20th January, 2019 for “Imbibing the spirit of Volunteerism” through his initiative. 

He thanks VSP and RFIT for enabling him to generate a Sustainable Income for himself.
