“I thank whatever Gods may be for throwing me the SAMVAD lifeline. I was able to hoist myself up rung by rung.
I advocate to make SAMVAD available in every community,” said Puja.
Exhibiting great skill and potential as an animator, Puja was selected to work as a primary school child development teacher. I use the skills I have gained from the process of changing my thoughts and behavior into positive intentions.
Her experiences as a SAMVAD animator brought her one step closer to her dream.
“As I said SAMVAD is a life changer, it changed my life; I changed my thoughts and behaviour. Though my work as an Animator, very soon I was recognized in the community for trying to bring positive change for adolescents and my community.
I also got opportunity to take part in several programs. My community selected me for a vacant post for a Child development teacher in this school. This goes to show that my community has faith in me, in my capabilities.
SAMVAD is a life changer, it changed my life; my thoughts and behaviour
I gained my confidence, knowledge, experience, determination in one year being an animator. The exam and interview that I faced to get selected as an animator gave me enough strength to face the exam and the interview for the post of Child Development teacher”. Now I can pass every exam in my life too”, says Puja.
Puja’s dream was to be a teacher but now she dreams to be a lecturer to teach at college. She has widened her horizon because of the opportunities that were made available to her through SAMVAD.
She is now pursuing her Bachelor’s degree that she never thought was in her reach. She is also the breadwinner of her family and supports her younger brother.
