My name is Annu and I am 26 years old. After completing my studies, I started thinking about my future, that what I want to do. I was having interest in Beauty Culture. So I started looking for a good institute for Beauty Culture Training, but most of them demand high fee for training. I came to know about ASRA from one of my friends and met ASRA’s Beauty Culture Teacher-Ms. Baljeet Kaur. She guided me and told me about the courses and other activities of ASRA. I was really very pleased to know about all the details and enroll my name for this course in 2015. My teacher guided me not only as a teacher but treated us as a friend too. Her way of teaching was really impressive and solved our every problem related to our course. I learnt everything whole heartedly. I have completed the Beauty culture course and am very satisfied by the training. I tried a lot for job in the same field but have not got satisfied result, so finally I decided and opened my own Beauty Parlor namely Gorgeous Beauty Parlor. I really like to express my heartfelt thanks to ASRA to motivate me on mine each failure during my interviews and for that special support which inspire me to be Self-dependent which is the most important source for me to earn my livelihood. Now, I not even have a parlor, even as an employer I have recruited two other employee too in my parlor. I wish that ASRA’s supporting wings will spread widely, more people will attach with it and more needy people will get support from ASRA.

I am Deepa. I am 22 year old girl. I had just passed my senior secondary exams and as any other fresh out of school girl, I was confused about my career. I wanted to take up a job so as to become independent and self-reliant financially. It was then that someone informed me about ASRA and its courses that I could pursue. I thought of it as an opportunity to fulfill my dreams. So I enrolled in the beauty culture course in ASRA. My family was more than merry and supported me throughout the course. As time passed, I realized that the course was changing my life in more ways than I could have expected. I experienced change in my personality, I came out of my shell and interacted more with people. I thank Ms. Baljeet Kaur (Beauty culture teacher, ASRA) and all the NGO workers who encouraged me to be economically independent. ASRA is doing amazing work by assisting women like us in being on our own and supporting our families financially. It also assists and facilitates PwDs in availing the services and provisions that are right of Persons with Disabilities. Apart from this, ASRA also works towards empowering women by providing them opportunities to learn and grow professionally and personally. Now I am now employed in Sai Beauty Parlor. I feel confident enough to open my own salon after I get enough experience of working in a professional setting. This would not have been possible without ASRA’s intervention. ASRA has given me wings to soar high.

I am Asha. I studied till class 7th and got married at an early age. I came to Delhi after getting married. I used to be busy in household chores; however I always wanted to do something but lacked opportunities. One day my friend told me about ASRA and the courses that one can avail. So, I decided to learn Beauty culture course of 6 months duration from here. After completing the course, I started working from my house. I feel great that I got the opportunity to be associated with ASRA. The way of teaching is quite different here. Teachers teach with patience here and this has allowed me to approach them and clarify my doubts in anything. I no more feel hesitant. ASRA has empowered me to be able to support my family; and this has actually helped in improving economic condition of my family. I am self-dependent today. I feel I have identity of my own today. And all this could not have been possible without ASRA. I thank ASRA with all my heart.
