Kallu Vamsi Krishna belongs to a remote village called Lakshmipuram that lacks proper infrastructure. Being daily wage labourers, his parents earned a meagre Rs. 450 per day, through which they managed their household expenses and had their son complete his ITI. Soon after, Vamsi Krishna worked as an auto driver to support his family. Eventually, he learned about the Suryamitra Programme at SEEDS and enrolled himself in. During his time there, he was taught basic computers, communication, and soft skills. Post the training, he got placed in ZTT Private Ltd. with a monthly pay of Rs. 13,000.
“From being an auto driver to holding a proper job with a stable income, I gained respect amongst my community,” Vamsi Krishna says. What changed for Vamsi through SEEDS is more than just a job or income. It is dignity earned, consistency of work, and increased social capital.
