Today he is working with ‘Reliance Trends’ and gets a monthly salary of Rs8400/-in hand. He feels very proud that with his earnings he can support the family and also independently take care of his personal expenses.
With a smile on his face Shadab says “This training is the best thing that happened to me.

Shadab now has a goal to continue doing his best and grow to the level of ‘department Manager’. Our best wishes to Shadab for achieving success in his future endeavours
Originally from Bihar, the family migrated to Delhi in search of livelihood. Prakash showed no interest in going to school and barely completed his class VIII. He soon began to accompany his father at work so he can avoid going to school. This he says was a ‘Blessing in disguise’. He acquired his skill of gardening by observing and assisting his father at work. He would go to work every day to do his mundane chores in the garden and return home day after day waiting for a small salary of about 3500/- per month which was hardly enough to make his two ends meet. Not so long ago in March 2018, Prakash heard of a specialized training being conducted with a defined job role of ‘Gardner cum Nursery Raiser’. An initiative to upskill the existing gardeners and to provide skills to the new comers.The 2 month training was like an eye-opener for Prakash. He realized that the work he was doing was very random. For Prakash gardening was as simple as sowing the seeds, watering the sapling or softening the soil and leave the rest to the weather gods for the plants to bear fruit. According to him the training not only gave him the knowledge of basics of gardening but also got the firsthand experience of knowing the different types of soil, impact of weather on plants and much more”. In other words he says “I feel like a real gardener now”. His enhanced gardening skills and eagerness to work was well appreciated and rewarded by his employers. He now earns a handsome pay packet of Rs. 9000/- per month.
